This is actually the third blog that I have created. A few years ago, I used a blog with my German IV-V AP class. At two week intervals, I posted a question, quote or comment. The students were required to respond to the post. They were able to read all other comments and discuss the topic. It worked pretty well, although some students had to be prodded to participate. After a while, I lost interest in the project.
This "blogger" blog seems much more clumsy to set up and edit, and it seems to be much less attractive than the Wordpress blog I had before. It has taken me much more time and I'm not particularly satisfied with the results. Maybe I just need to practice more. Instead of recording my voice, I added an MP3 file.
