Choose an online blog platform to create your education-based blog to share with other teachers.
-WordPress.com, Blogger.com, and Thoughts.com are examples of free blogs, though you are free to use any software, service, or technology that provides a sharable link. Sites that require a paid subscription are not required, especially with so many free options available online. You will be using this blog throughout the remainder of the course.
