Ideas for How to Use Blogging

Colin @ Media Matters

Here’s some ideas from our workshop on how the participants can use blogging in their work:

  • Use it in the classroom to make argument instead of a regular essay; and other students can comment on each other
  • new medium for posting timely articles for the student newspaper
  • getting feedback on essay for feedback before handing it in
  • questioning local new media article validity
  • more youth voice in the media
  • Live Journal community to post announcements and community events (it’s informal now)
  • call out to females at my school to find out why they’re always fighting

Folks seemed to have a lot of questions about how blogs get traffic. We talked about blogrolls/liniking, tagging, and searching. Check out Technorati.com to find out more about tagging and try Google’s Blog Search at http://blogsearch.google.com/.
