Blogging

Hi everyone

Today I'll try and call by and see what H611, our new room, is like.

I'd like you to look at some blogs today. What is a blog? Well, it comes from the words 'Web Log'. You take the last letter of the first word and combine it with the next word.

B + Log = Blog

But what is it exactly?

You know what a diary is like, don't you? A diary, journal, log, travelogue etc is simply something that you write on a daily or regular basis. When you put in online it is called a blog.

What you are reading now is a blog. It's my class blog. I write regularly for ESOL students. Let me show you another blog. It's mine too, but it is about another topic. It tells about my trip through Japan three years ago. Take a look at it, but don't read too much. Please come back here in no more than 5 minutes.

(Now go to http://www.williamandmami.blogspot.com/ for 5 minutes.)

Are you back? Good! Soon I'm going to send you away again. I will ask you to look at some blogs by other people. You will look at some at random. Mostly they will be boring, so don't waste time looking at them. I would like you to glance at at least 20. Then, when you find an interesting looking blog, I want you to do two things:

  1. Bookmark that blog's address so that you can find it again
  2. Email me (or write a comment) and send me the address of the blog

To visit random blogs, return to either my class blog or my Japan trip blog. Look at the top of the page. On the blue bar, you simply click on the words 'Next Blog'. That's all!

Good luck.

There is quite a lot of photoes of their family. They look so happy and I could expect that the blogger really loves his family.
