This is such an exciting topic!! (sorry for being ironic)
I just can't understand how they pretend me to talk so much about my "blogging experience".
But i'll make an effort:
The truth is that i 've never had a blog before. Neither a fotolog, a myspace, a flickr, a facebook etc...I've never understood the "virtual social life". I think i have a probblem with virtual life in general. I always prefer go for a walk, or see some friends that staying at home in front of the computer. A reason wich maybe can explain that, is the fact that in my house there's only one computer and my mother work in house, obvously in the computer. In fact, just now i have to get worried: my mum give me only thirty minutes for use the computer!!
In the english classes context, i think that blogging is a good option. Maybe if is not really my style, i think that we have to take advantages of virtual tools, and beginning to combine education and technology. Trying new supports open new ways for creativity. I think that the blogs make us feel that we have an own space. And that give us more flexibility, and more posibilities to express us, to talk about we really want to talk. I thing the blogging experience give me some fresh air...
