Already have two blogs for fun, but I would definitely visit other members' blogs and support them (who knows, I might change my mind and join the fun :twisted: ). The idea sounds interesting. 8)

I don't know it sounds to need a lot of Bytes to have a blog for every sigle member here. Can you manage it Josef?

I already have two blogs too, but I wouldn't mind having an EC one :D I think it's a great idea :!: Go on, Josef.

PS: Will there be the possibility to upload our pictures?

This sounds about right. How do you do it, Josef? Is there a new link for the blogs which will be connected to EC board? And every member can sign up for it? There isn't any requirements to sign up for the blog?

Your person website that you'd update your daily activities or talk about anything, even the meaningless things.

Like this one is a blog,

http://www.noodlepie.com/

The online dictionary has updated its definition:

Main Entry: weblog
Part of Speech: noun
Definition: a personal Web site that provides updated headlines and news articles of other sites that are of interest to the user, also may include journal entries, commentaries and recommendations compiled by the user; also written web log, Weblog; also called blog

It's not a bad idea.
Although I have two blogs already, I wouldn't mind having another one. I'd blog in one site and paste the same info on the other sites. :D It would be like killing two birds with one stone.

I think reading about other members' lives will connect each other more, so yes, it's a good idea.

I have too and I´d like to have one more.
I think is absoluty nessesary tha the blog include photos and a obligatory section related to the learning of ESL, I mean maybe a section of "How to spell.."
I´m wondering if with this section people should continuo participating in the Forum?

I think Red Rose would come back, finally she doesn´t talk about politic and religion :lol:

It depends of technical solutions and the rules of using that bloging. :wink: So far I'm content with EC, though I dislike anything, that is called club. There have also been some annoying times, when server is down.. but until I don't know what causes those server shutowns. I have no reason to complain.. I would complain, if I would know, that it have been caused by Administrators lousy scripts, that he experimenting there. without any guilt-feelins.. :twisted: Of course I would like too see those bloging extensions here. don't know, if I would use it since I have one blog already, where I have made only one entry.. so I hardly believe that I could treat this blog diffrent.. I'm always just far away from comp when get interesting thoughts that are worth to post..

It's absolutely a good sound for all members of EC to join and share all of information about everything,although,the blog wasn't still established.

I think Blog in EC is unsuitable with its image, there are many other websites which specialized on Blogs.

Blogs are a good idea. Some people hate it... They say it's a waste of time, since they prefer 'texts with content.'

However, blogs can be meaningful tools for us to practice English and express whatever we wanna say!

Even though I'm new to this site, I think the idea of adding BLOGS is a sort of fascinating idea! And, yeah, my personal experience towards blogging is somewhat quite limit. Nevertheless, I'm always open to learn new things.
