Wow, I feel like a blogger.

So this morning in an english class, we were discussing different ways to reach out to certain societies to tell them about our school. Bud was sitting in on the class and suggested blogging. Just then a voice came from the opposite corner of the room, "What is a blog?" Then another voice...."You know like, MySpace or Xanga."

For some reason I was slightly offended. Obviously these people do not know the differences between blogging, and journaling.

So I lean over and speak my piece.

"No, MySpace is a journaling site, not a blogging site."

Instantly an utter look of confusion appears on her face.

I was way to tired too explain (it was 8:00 in the am), so instead I decided to just let her bask in the confusion. Hopefully someday, these people will know the difference.

Thank you,
Moe The Student

You go Moe! It makes me VERY happy that you felt "slightly offended" and that you stuck up for "real" blogging. The more we can help students see the distinction, the better.

dude WOW you just totally caused that person to be really confused and then didn't back up your statement with an explainition and that makes you look like a snob saying someone is wrong and then not proveing it. it is being like "bob sucks-Why?- because he sucks " you know

Moe...keep it going. Will pointed me to your blog a few weeks ago as an example of a student blog. I was "blogvangelizing" to a group of 50 teachers/librarians/administrators. They wanted me to talk about all the "bad parts" of blogging...they couldn't see past the "myspace" and "xanga" part of students blogging. Your site was sandwiched into the PowerPoint slide between Robert Scoble and Howard Dean.

There are a few hundred other "edubloggers" that are probably taking a look at your work this evening. :O) I do agree with "student" though...grab some coffee tomorrow morning...wake up a bit...go back and make your case about the difference between blogging and journaling. :O)
