I set up a blog for Digital Collections class and haven't used it since then. It seemed lika a chore to me. I thinking you must really like to write or journal to get into this. Perhaps if my blog was directed at a topic of ongoing interest, I would have a different experience. Or, perhaps it is a time issue. I feel pushed to meet all my obligations of work, school, and family. Blogging is something that takes more time and a back seat.
I decided to use Blogger this time. I thought the creation of the avatar was really fun! My son is really into his avatars on his computer games. Now I have a better understanding of why. You can portray yourself to be whoever you want to be.
