    Blogging is a good way to explore oneself! If an student is passionate about blogging, then he may get a range of benefits through blogging. Some of them are as follow;

    * Level of Thinking

    How about this: it makes them better people…Thanks for your list. I agree with them all.

    I like this creative list you put together stating all the benefits of blogging. Our school hasn’t done any blogging. Seeing these benefits listed could motivate our school to try it.
