    Hello. I am in a Doctorate program in Education and have to follow an higher education and international blog for 8 weeks. I hate to admit this since I think of myself as intelligent but I cannot figure out how to find a blog appropriate for my course project. I am even having trouble responding to any blog. After saying all that I find that I need to read and follow this blog and attend the education on blogging since the title says it all. Blogging is not only for kids but kids may be the ones that can proficiently blog since they are the ones current with todays technology! Plus, where is the spell check? LOL!

    1. Hi Maureen, nice to hear from you and well done responding to the blog! Hope you can come to the PD tomorrow and I might be able to answer some of your questions about blogging 🙂

  2. I look forward to your broadcasts:
    I have started a worldwide writing collaborative that I would like to invite you or any of your readers to join. We are posting pictures from our classroom windows and asking members to write creatively about what they see. It would be great to expand globally. You can find us at:

    And Ms. McGeady you can contact me through email given in this post.

    1. @ Ben, I checked out your wiki and it looks like a terrific project! I hope my class can be involved at some stage but at the moment we have a lot on. Hopefully lots of my readers will check it out and join in! Keep up your terrific work 🙂
