- Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more Web 2.0 gives each of us the potential to go beyond the role of “consumers” of digital data and become producers and communicators with a community which extends far beyond the schoolhouse door. This session shows you how to create your own blog fast and for free. We will examine some existing blogs and compare/contrast their audiences and approaches. The session will lead you step-by-step through the creation of a blog. Finally, we will leave you with a host of tips for maintaining a blog of your very own. After the workshop, you will have the tools at your command to create your own blog and do it in 10 minutes or less!

My experience my blogging have spanned almost five years and included not only this blog, but two at the school level and two at the school system level. As a direct result of these blogs, every single school in my former school system established blogs of their own, and many teachers and organizations within those schools established their own blogs as well.
