My Image Students' Blogs

I am using blogs again with my students of Image. This is a group of Polytechnic students studying English as a subsidiary subject (once a week for a 2 hour class).

I started using weblogs with the group last year and it was successful. This year I asked the 2nd years if they wanted to continue and they all said yes. It was a lot easier introducing the 1st years to the idea of blogging too as they were able to ask their classmates (the 2nd years) if they had any doubts.

So far we have managed to set up the blogs and start posting on subjects related to cinema and photography. I need to sort out a few problems with links / invitations from individual Student blogs to the Tutor blog, but otherwise it's going well.

I have to give this group assignments and use what they produce in their blogs as part of their evaluation.

The Tutor blog can be found here:

  2. How to build a niche blog empire..

    Over the past year or two people have become more and more obsessed with blogging.

    Blogs have proven themselves over and over again to be
    great methods of generating a huge income from part-time

    With Google experimenting with blog technology more
    and more, this is surely not a fad.

    Creating blogs in niche topics is a very easy and effective way for the beginning home business owners to see their first success.

    More specifically, if you write a blog covering niche topics, you'll easily generate traffic to the blogs which then turns into income with the help of Adsense.

    Two prime examples of the niche blogging sensation are
    Jason Calacanis and Darren Rowse.

    Learn what these two guys are doing and see how you can
    build a nice nest egg by niche blogging:
