    Christina, how have you found using Google reader? Also, what did you think of the readings for this week?

      Michael, the link that you posted on how to organize your peers blogs was excellent! What a useful tool.
      Especially for those who do not have time to search throughout the internet to find their classmates blogs.
      When I click on the Google Reader folder, I simply hit reply to my class mate to communicate directly to him/her.
      I just recently found out that if you click on the Title of the Blogging Post, you can reply directly to his/her ‘comments’ blog.
      Every day, I am learning something new about the uses for blogging.

        Christina, that is great to hear. I notice you have been busy in your commenting in the past couple of days and I encourage you to keep it up. I’ve found that when you comment on other’s blogs, they generally return the favour. 🙂
