-- anything they find interesting or newsworthy.
Some authors use blogs to get input on their story ideas! Professional and amateur journalists use blogs to publish breaking news.
Blogs may include images, audio, and video.
Blogs may be private -- shared with networks of friends and family; or public -- have a worldwide audience of thousands.
Publishing will only be allowed with teacher approval.
PRIVACY! Last Names and images of students should NEVER appear on the blog entries!
