You made a good point with blogs. Unless you plan on keeping it updated, you should not start one. I never like finding a blog that hasn't been updated for months or years.
I have also considered starting a personal blog, but I think I wouldn't do a very good job of keeping it updated. I think if I would have one for school, I might be better about updating it. We shall see. Good luck with yours!
I agree with Mary. It can be frustrating to come acorss a blog that isn't updated. I like the idea of having one for school use. I would post upcoming tests, assignments, and projects to keep students and parents "in the know."
The blog that you had maintained before...what was it about/for? Was it a blog that you had started yourself or joined? I can see that one of the benefits of blogging is the chance to collaborate with others.
Okay, so I have a hard time even checking my facebook account because I am so busy. I think i get to it maybe twice a week for like 3-5 minutes. THATS IT!! I have never been big into blogging. I always start with an idea in mind and get going on it...then I get too busy and forget about it!
