What: A blog is a real-time, on-line journal that allows people to share their thoughts and ideas and get feedback from followers. As soon as you hit publish, your words and ideas are shared with your audience.
Who: Students, teachers, librarians, moms, dads, professionals… anyone can create a blog.
Why: You have something to share with the world or want to foster a community discussion. It’s a forum to communicate with others about a common topic; a place to share ideas and gain feedback; a place to let your creativity come alive.
When: Morning, noon or night. You can blog anytime you want (so long as you are abiding by your teacher, boss or parents’ rules.)
Where: The beauty of blogging is that you can do it anywhere you have access to the internet. You can use a portable device such as a Smartphone, tablet or laptop. The options are endless. You can blog at school, the library, at home, so long as you are being responsible and following digital etiquette (i.e. not using devices in school when you are not supposed to be doing so).
