Update on Blogging at my school

Well, I have sad apparently limits how many new accounts can be made...meaning when I tried to have my second class of the day make their gmail account, we kept getting a message that said you already have an account; please try signing in. So I could not have two of my three classes do their first blog yesterday. I encouraged students to start their gmail account at home if they could (a number of them do not have Internet at home). Today I told the students we would put the idea on the back burner for now and moved on to our research of a new technology project instead. Late in the day I tried google again and it appeared like it was going to let me sign-up for an account. So the only thing I can think of is that google has a limit on how many can be made in one day to the same ip address. So my sad news continues because I will not have an update for the class on how blogging went by Tuesday.

I had some students use their yahoo accounts to make their blog, however they could not comment on another student's blog without a gmail account.

Sarah, you don't have to have a gmail account to sign up for blogger. I can sign into blogger with a yahoo account and still use iGoogle. Just thought you should know for future reference.

Yes I know, I had some kids sign in with their yahoo accounts that we had already made. The problem is that they could not comment on each other's blog with a gmail account.
