Blogs are online writing spaces where students can extend their learning outside of the classroom through reflective writing for an authentic audience consisting of more people than just their teacher. Blogs allow students to participate in more in-depth conversations about information and ideas involved in their learning. In addition to expressing their ideas, through blogs students can receive and provide feedback extending their learning beyond the confines of the classroom and textbook. 

Three free and easy to use blogging services are Blogger, Posterous, and Tumblr.
