Working on Lesson 2 means writing a blog...something that I have purposely avoided for the past several years.  Don't get me wrong, I am well aware of what blogs are and follow several (mainly friends and family, with the addition of Pioneer Woman) but find that personally I am really bad at journaling.  This includes journaling about lesson plans as well - something that I really aspire to improve.  But lets face it, at 8 months pregnant, and with 10 days left in the school year, the likely hood of me adding one more thing to my day is pretty slim.  And then there is the fact that my stream of conscious journaling style ends up really just sounding like babble.

    I'm wondering if I would ever use a blog in the classroom setting.  I suppose if I taught English there would be several occasions to do so, but I don't really know how it would fit into the chemistry and engineering curriculums that I teach.  I welcome any other thoughts on that matter, however.

It is definitely easier to use a blog in an English class. I have used it as a tool for parents to know what was going on within our class. Students have used it as a way to check for assignments  they may have missed due to being absent. I agree about the "adding one more thing to my day" comment, I have also asked a student in the class to log on and type it out for me. I have a few students who routinely finish early and they do it for me. That might be a way to incorporate a blog into your routine.
