In a few days I'm teaching a workshop called "Blogging in the Classroom," wherein I will share my accumulated wisdom and experience with members of the CHS faculty, many of them utter novices.
Perfect timing, then, for Joe Carter to re-release his guide to starting a blog, which not only contains some indispensable advice for rookies, but some great links to other blogging how-tos and some reminders for old pros.
I won't be plagiarizing too much from Carter, since his piece is about blogging for fun and profit, whereas I'm more interested in blogging as a forum and an assessment tool. Nevertheless, in the spirit of the enterprise, I owe Mr. Carter props for his quality blogging and thought-provocation, especially when he's at his most irritating. (Which isn't often, unless you're Mumon, and then it's every dang day.)
If you were going to take a class on blogging--especially as a teacher using blogging in the classroom--what would you like to learn?
