  • To Blog or Not to Blog
    Is that the question?
  • Because we want to be like everyone else
    It is estimated that there were only 150 blogs in the late 1990s.   However, this number increased to 10.3 million blogs in 2004 and to over 70 million in 2007.  According to Technorati, an Internet site that tracks and indexes blogs, this number had grown to 112.8 million by July 2008, with 175,000 new blogs being added each day

    "Blogging doesn't solve a problem just because you have the technology," says Hunt, instructional technologist at St. Vrain Valley School District in Longmont, CO. An avid blogger and proponent of teaching good writing in K-12 schools, Hunt believes that to be valuable as a writing aid, blogging should be weaved into other components of a classroom writing program.
