The Reluctant Blogger – Some Suggestions

Some students would prefer to blog privately, and set up their own private blogs independent of the class blog. They might choose to do this because they feel exposed and uncomfortable with what they perceive to be forced divulging of private thoughts. An excellent example of how tough it is to blog, knowing others are watching, is to blog in a foreign language. Try to place yourself in the place of these private-minded learners – what would motivate them to blog, and how could you blog to inspire these reluctant student bloggers?
