Will Richardson Video

Years ago I used to have a "Literary Society" where students could come to the library and discuss a book. Will Richardson's video showed how blogging could be a great way to discuss books with the students and the author at the same time. When I get back to school I plan to start a Literary Society Blog. I can also create a blog before book fair to tell the students about some of the books in the flyer and ask the students to post also.

For my personal life I would love to start a family and or friends blog. A lot of my family and friends live out of state. What a great way to keep in touch!

I agree, I haven't organized a literary society in the past, but every year I have my students complete independent reading projects. Next year I want to start an Shelfari and also an IR Project Community for discussing each book!

Love the ideas you have here for implementing blogs! As far as the personal blog, I know someone who is having his father (who is in his 80's) blog about his life - a historical document that the whole family will treasure!
