We are going to continue exploring a question online by becoming readers and responders of blogs. To do this we will learn how to find and manage blogs about personal inquiry topics. We will also publish our own thoughts by responding to other people's blogs, and by participating in this way, we will begin connecting with a community of bloggers. In this small way, we will become collaborators in the building of the blogosphere.

We will use an RSS feed aggregrator, Bloglines to "create a personal Bloglines page loaded with the freshest news about..." the inquiry we started yesterday in
