Hello Edublogs!

The original MHMS Daring School Library Blog was started in 2006 on Blogger. My district, HCPSS has blocked Blogger in the schools because Blogger hosts questionable content on some of their blogs. Oh Blogger, how could you!? Why can’t you give us an .EDU protected server?

Anyway, hello Edublog! So we’re moving here. For now. I gotta see how this feels. Should we pay $40 a year for no ads? I wish I could change the template – I like an all black background – it’s so calming  & elegant – all this white hurts my eyes! EEep!
