Got Blog? Workshop Completed

This afternoon I taught a workshop for teenagers at the Monroe County Public Library. Earlier I posted my linklist on prolurker so I would have easy access during the presentation.

About 12 teens were in attendance, all girls. Surprisingly only two of the girls did not already have blogs, all 10 blogs are on free sites.  Since so may of the teens already have an understanding of what blogging is we spent most of our time talking about security rather than what blogging is about. They knew far more about the nuances of the interfaces then I do so I got to learn from them too, which is always a good thing in my book.

All of them would probably benefit from another workshop on tips and tricks for playing with the site designs.  Something I couldn't talk about without serious preparation.  Boy I don't know much about the specifics of Xanga, though I have played with LiveJournal and Blogger.

After the workshop I was interviewed by the Bloomington Herald Times for an article that will probably be in the newspaper tomorrow.  Gosh I hope I didn't sound like to much of a dork.  LOL  I'm much more comfortable doing the interviewing then being interviewed.  My brain is usually spinning out follow up questions to answers I have just given...not always a helpful thing.  Oh well we shall see.
