Flock of birds
Thanks to the brilliant technology of Google Alerts (which automatically sifts the web for any new content that matches your search terms and sends you a compilation of that material), I've now discovered two more adult literacy technology bloggers to read and share!

Teachers at MLC Learning Center - Arlington Hills are using an English-learning music video from YouTube to teach students the "Washing Machine Song".

What exactly is "Blog Guilt" and do I have it? Does "Blog Guilt" show up in all those meaningless blog posts that people make about why they aren't blogging?

Am I misappropriating tax dollars if I'm blogging on work time--and is worrying about that question a sign of Blog Guilt?
