“While many Tripod and Angelfire members use their blogs to publicize the events in their own lives, as well as the lives of celebrities, a number of educators have turned to blogging as a method to share class notes, assignments, and to even accept answers from students,” said Jamie Riehle, group product manager of web publishing for Lycos. “Several instructors use blogs to facilitate on-line student discussions, capitalizing on the interactive nature of the blog.”
“Similarly, many mothers, or mothers-to-be, are using blogs as a way to share information, tips and photos of their children with others,” Riehle added. “The integration of the Tripod and Angelfire photo albums into the blog tool has made it easy to share baby photos with friends and family around the corner, or around the world.”
