My blog is for learning and sharing of web technology. I am a beginner in coding.
My blog will focus on web presentation. Discussing on CSS, HTML and other related technologies.
This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
Draft a list of items you either:
From dogs to cycling to Harry Potter--whatever interests you. These are perfect subjects for a blog!
Sign up for a blog. Recommended places to do that:

"Why I Blog" by Andrew Sullivan.
I'm starting a blog because I often sit at home with my wife and say to myself "I wish there was a way to share this with people". We are heavy into the betterment of ourselves. Subjects I would write about include.
I'm just having the hardest time thinking up a name.
I was gonna go with FamilyofQuinn, but it doesn't have a good ring to it. Any suggestions?
Hey ya'll. I'm new to the blogging (and P2PU) scene, and my heart's nervous about baring my blog for all to see. Regardless, I'm about to hit the big 2-5 (it's big for a youngster like me) and I decided I want to do and create as much as I could before then. My blog is a project space prone to many directions, and current personal challenges include screenprinting, book reviews, an informal research "paper", documenting meals, working on my "voice", and whatever strikes. Scared but here goes! www.savillany.wordpress.com is where I'm at. Lovely to meet you, and I look forward to going through this challenge!
So, this is a bit hard...
The reason I want to blog is that I always have something to say, an opinion or a certain point of view that I wiould like to share with other human beings. My only doubt is whether or not what I want to share matters to anyone or it would be interesting enough for people to interact with it...
Do I make any sense??
I just created a blog on Posterous to be a part of the challenge :-). This is my second blog. I created the first one a long time ago, but used it so little that I can't even remember my username now. I hope to be able to keep this one alive. Here are a few things I would like to learn more about.
I started a blog about 6 months ago, http://www.webdesignermom.com, that I haven't kept up with like I originally wanted. I think my problem might have been that I wanted to write about too many topics that would appeal to too many different audiences that would have just a small overlap.
For example, I wanted to write blogs about how I balanced running a business out of my house and also having my daughter stay at home instead of be in daycare. These posts would target female business owners as well as stay-at-home moms, but the 'niche' would be the combination of the two.
I also wanted to write articles that were specific to my work, some just reporting findings on the industry, some tutorials, and some just resources that I have found useful. These would be written for programmers, web designers/developers, and others in my industry.
I thought about splitting up these ideas (and more) into multiple blogs, but I'm not sure if that would be more or less overwhelming. Any advice would be appreciated!!
My list of interests are listed below and I highlighted what I want to learn more about:
politics and social issues
creative DIY projects
fun learning activities to do with kids
running a business
I tried Blogger in the past, but it wasn't for me because it's too limited. I'm thinking about starting a tech site focusing on Android and Mac OS X, hence the display picture.
I'm having trouble coming up with a good name so your help would be very much appreciated.
I've been tossing the idea of a blog around for a month or so now.
Generally I uploaded things to Facebook (I know, I know) but of course this is a woefully limiting capacity.
Mostly I want to write about how things pertain to specific aspects of psychology (I'm a psychologist) and the social implications of things such as social media, culture as well as the ongoing changes in social norms. I've thought of a few things:
gender norms/LGBT issues
This is my blog: http://kinichajaw.blogspot.com/
I've yet to read the article by Mr. Sullivan (I'm going to now), but to me, blogging is about passion, and about life.
I've yet to decide, also, what my blog will specifically be about. I think just what I read, what things fascinate and interest me.
I know that's saying more with less, but really, I think that's what suits me.
Also, as I read the article by Mr. Sullivan, this line stuck with me:
"...[a blogger is]a node among other nodes, connected but unfinished without the links and the comments and the track-backs that make the blogosphere, at its best, a conversation, rather than a production."
I've started a few blogs in the past, and all of them fell through after two or three posts. I'm hoping to really stick with this one!
I want to learn more about:
designing and building rc/autonomous robots
Also, I enjoyed the article "Why I Blog," by Andrew Sullivan. It contains a great deal of insight into blogging. It's helping me to understand that having a blog isn't necessarily about publishing essays polished with multiple drafts and long periods of reflection. Having the ability to let go of the control I have over my writing is a hard thing for me, since I'm naturally quiet, introspective, and dislike showing weakness through imperfect work.
"...the key to understanding a blog is to realize that it’s a broadcast, not a publication. If it stops moving, it dies. If it stops paddling, it sinks."
I've had a blog for a while, located at www.simeonjackson.co.uk, but rarely upload content.
The main area that I want to focus on for the purpose of this course is the "Manifesto" section, which is about my thoughts and theories. I have a long list of ideas and possible posts which would make for very boring reading here, but here are a few highlights:
Hey Simon. All of these topics seem like they would lend themselves to a good debate.
