Week 2: Blogging reflection

I enjoy blogging, though I have not had too much opportunity to do it unless it was a school assignment.  I did keep a blog of a trip I took this summer to Ghana and my friends and family back home were able to stay in touch with me through it. It was a great tool to document my trip and offer real time updates to everyone back home. I think that blogs are a great tool to use in the classroom and library.  A librarian can stay in touch with the population she or he serves with a blog by offering reading lists, book reviews, and reflections on what she or he is reading, among many other things.  It offers an interactive environment for the student at all times, not just during school hours.  I even have a few blogsites bookmarked for my own personal use because of the information they offer.

It has been a dream of mine to travel to Africa. Was it the most amazing trip ever? I am hoping to visit Botswana or Tanzinia in the next 3 years. Is your Africa blog still up? I would love to hear more about your trip. Also, I was wondering how you got our classmates' blogs to come up on your blog. I can only seem to get them into my profile.

I figured out how to get the blogs that I follow to come up on my blog. Thanks anyway.
