Most people in my English class agreed that they wanted to keep the Ning running for as long as possible. It would be great to have something for people to share their ideas publicly during the summer, but then why didn’t we take advantage of this earlier? It seems to me that not too many people check the Ning as frequently as they do their social networking sites, and only did required blog posts. So this summer will we be self motivated to blog when it’s not assigned?
One of my favorite websites is the homepage of Yahoo. They have stories on all different kinds of topics and always have new content. I’d like to see our website like that too, but we’ll need to break some of the blogging rules. Our topics for blog posts need to be related to English class, which is fine if that is what you know the most about, but I think if we really want to create unique content that we can learn from, then we should be able to blog about whatever we want to share. If you’re a good enough blogger, you can sign up with adSense, which will pay you for visitors. Sounds interesting, right?
Would you blog on your own if you could blog on any topic?
