the novelty of blogs no longer?

I read this earlier on Jill/txt but didn’t decide to link to it until I realized how many insightful comments were left there. And after all the reading I did today about the uses of blogs, this post reminds me of the reasons why I haven’t always used blogs in the writing courses I teach and why I enjoy the scholarship on the medium so much–it’s always evolving!

While I doubt I’ll go where the students are–on Facebook or MySpace–and try to use it for classroom purposes, this whole discussion about forced blogging is one to make note of, and perhaps even mention tomorrow in my exam essays!
