Who here has a blog?

I recently sent an email out the the TALO eGroup asking people there to come in here and post a comment with their blog's URL. My concern is that the information I am getting through my news reader is very Northern Hemisphere, and I believe that the people downunder are more innovative. But I make that judgement based on a comparison between what I'm reading from the North and what I'm hearing in face to face conversations with people I meet here in Australia. In saying that however, I know relatively few people in Australia who keep active blogs on the topics surrounding eLearning. I know of none who are audio blogging... I guess you might ask, how then could I think that the people I'm meeting are more innovative. I guess its because although they don't keep or promote their blogs to me, I can hear it in what they say. Perhaps blogs are slowly and cautiously comming up in Australia, or perhaps people are waiting to see what happens...

Anyway, I hope to capture a few Blogs here so I can start reading more from DownUnder.

I've got a couple of blogs going but they're not the kind people would really want to subscibe to. One is where I try out new blogging tools and ideas before showing them to my teachers. Like a personal sandpit. eg I'm constantly trying to find some easy way to upload pictures through my very secure network!
If you want to look it's:

My other blog is a bibliography I kept last year as a FLL and still add to although some of its functionality has been taken over by rediscovering Bloglines.

I've just started another blog for my learnscope planning group - I've set it up as a team blog but no one has responded yet!

Another Learnscope project I'm involved with is trying to get a blog going but I can't make it work - its at Blogsome:
http://ferals.blogsome.com/

and yet another tiny project i'm in is using another type of blog:

Hi Leigh,
I am participating in a comm course which uses a blog as part of the learning process. My blog is at livejournal.com but I think you have to register there so I can put you on my friends list so you can see my blog. Let me know if you want to do that.

Hi Leigh,
I have used blogs as a way of recording RTI and also lately with ITTO. I tried unsuccessfully in uploading photos with picasa.

Hey Leigh,

I've got: Design Websites which is a team blog used as part of the delivery for the Cert IV Web Design course. Also using Advanced Applications to communicate with a Cert III Software group. Then Work @ TAFE is kindof like a professional development journal - helping me learn!

Hi Leigh

I have been using Bloggs to record activities of a few projects I am involved with.

The first one is about telling the story of a Learnscope Project:
http://learnscope.blogspot.com/

The second one is about a group Learnscope project and again is more about information sharing I am presenting it the next meeting to encourage some interaction within the group.

Another is for a Reframing the Future project and I have a few people who have begun to post.
http://reframing2005.blogspot.com/

I have a few more but they still need a bit of development. I am finding them useful to keep my managers aware of the progress of the projects. Still have a bit of skill to develop.......
