How are you using blogs? Please share your stories!

I've been using it in 2 different ways: 1) since I teach high school students in a preschool classroom setting, I've been blogging each day (or attempting to) on how I have felt the day has gone each day (obviously keeping it professional). 2) I have had the preschoolers take turns each day being the photojournalist where they dictate to me what they did each day and if they used their camera, taking one of their photos and putting it next to their blog (again, attemptig to do that) Both take an emormous amount of time so not always able to accomplish it daily!!)
