If the dead can dance, then why can't blogs teach?

In addition to reading the first non-NDLA related mention of this humble blog in the great big blogosphere at Steven M. Cohen's Library Stuff (permit us a moment of self-congratulation), there is another link to a great blog for learners and teachers!

Marianne Lenox's I Am So Gonna Blog This is designed as an online course for novice bloggers. It highlights some of the basics of Google's Blogger product (the same used for NDLA Blogging for Beginners), and details how to start a blog, setting up RSS feeds, and basic HTML and template editing. As an extra bonus, she provides plenty of screenshots to help you along the way!

To paraphrase the late, great Don Adams as Maxwell Smart: it's so nice to see people using blogs for niceness instead of evil.
