I was looking for a simple blog to add to an online class and was excited to
find Jason's comments. I started the process looking for the simple to use,
which I realize is a matter of perspective. I had to wade through 3-4 pages of
questions about myself before getting officially signed up. After I signed up to
use LJ, I was inundated with ads via e-mail and I felt it was difficult to
actually get started. I just deleted my account after 20 minutes of looking for
the actual journal in the journal. I am a very experienced computer user and
felt the statement "easy to use" is misleading.

I use this blog site in my classroom on a regular basis. I have enjoyed great
success with this site. The simple format allows students to use this site with
ease. They comment for themselves, and others can view their journals, but
don't need to respond (like a discussion group environment). The use of this
site has helped generate a buzz about reading and writing that I have rarely
experienced in the classroom.

Technical Remarks:

The site is simple and straight forward, yet students can design their own blog
sites to suit their tastes. The site is easy to regulate and navigate.
