I had the joy of sharing this new and marvelous tool with a group of conversation students - a great bunch by the way, whose enthusiasm and joy for the language is always a shot of new energy for this teacher- and seeing how we can get students engaged in real learning.
They got so on board that one of them kindly reminded me that I had forgotten to allow people to comment on what I post.
Not only did I sell them the blog idea but I got them thinking about the kick of creating an audio file, aka podcast.
So to take the words of Blogger.com:
Blogging is about more than just putting your thoughts on the web. It's about connecting with and hearing from anyone who reads your work and cares to respond. With Blogger, you control who can read and write to your blog — let just a few friends or the entire world see what you have to say!
