Thing #9

The search tool easiest for me was technorati, as it seemed to be more organized and broke things down into better sections, or groups.

The Edublog award winners was somewhat confusing, until I figured out that I merely had to scroll down to actually click on links to see blogs. Initially, all I saw was the little checkboxes where users were allowed to vote for what they felt was best blog in that category. I also didn't like how it doesn't tell you what level of education the blogs in each award category are geared towards (i.e. elem vs. high school); I had to go to each site to find out if it was more applicable to elementary school or middle or high school, and that gets very time consuming. It would be nice if they organized it further to break it down into age related groups so that we could more readily find blogs that are more relevant to our situation.


  1. I had the same problem that you had with Edublog; it made no sense to be set up like that! Have you stumbled upon this blog yet:
    It won an award, and it seems really helpful.
    Good luck with the rest of your 23 things!

  2. I actually liked the Edublog list because it was divided into categories, but I do agree with you that if there were an easier way to find blogs that related to elementary, middle or high school it would be a bit simpler/

  3. I love the avatar----it is just you!!!

    I agree that it would be better to break down the categories so that we didn't have to search all of the others.

  4. I agree with you about Edublog. I found the organzation confusing.

  5. Gal Named Al-Thanks, good luck to you, too. No, had not seen that link yet.
