Why a blog?
Why do students comment?
Why don't students write posts?
How do students post comments on the blog?
There are very specific guidelines for posting a comment on the blog. For instance, no full names will be published, students should only use "first name last initial" in the Name/URL field under "Choose an identity" no links or non-student names will be published.

Why isn't a blog comment published?
It can take up to 24 hours from the time a student submits a comment to when it appears on the blog. Mr. Casal reads all comments before approving them to be publically visible, this is sometimes a time consuming process. If comments aren't visible it is becuse the student didn't properly identify themselves in the post, used their last name, included links, etc
