This summer think about starting a family blog. It’s a terrific communication project as well as a collaborative learning opportunity for everyone — kids, parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles.
Last year I taught a short online blogging course to parents at my school. My Start a Family Blog class, hosted on a WordPress blog, is still available. The posts will guide interested families through the basics of starting a blog for relatives and friends.
Over at SomeNovelIdeas, a blog authored by librarian Stacy Nockowitz, would be bloggers will find a comprehensive and rich list of resource links to help get started. She organizes her links into categories:
- Blogging Basics
- Blogging Resources
- Blogs About Blogging
- Blogging Platforms
Also included at the bottom of the resource page is a cool glossary of blogging terms.
