Blogging as an assignment isn't exactly new territory either. When I was in primary school, I was required to make a blog too and publish blog posts. Mostly about deeds I've done and stuff. *whispers* not much fun though. I prefer blogging whenever I want about whatever I want. Of course, I am careful about whatever I publish.
I think blogging is going to be a very interesting part of my learning experience at SST. I hope we are going to do this regularly, and not just leave it halfway.
