This is my first post on this blog. I am enrolled in an on-line class Openwebpublishing. I have worked on my blog, Grammar Ramblings, off and on for the last couple of years in Blogger, so this blog is not a completely new experience. Also, it is good to have to learn or relearn about the beginnings since I will soon guide my students through setting up their blogs for a writing class I teach. This will be the third semester I have incorporated blogging into the class. The results have been mixed so far. Last semester I had two students who did not blog at all and a few others who posted maybe once or twice. This semester, I hope to have more participation since the first time I had students blog, there was much more participation.
