Blogs in school

I think there is less pressure on how students preforms when they are writing blogs instead of writing only for the teacher. This is because when you are writing blogs every week you have more chances of correcting your mistakes compared to writing four large tasks a year. Therefore each blog post has less pressure on it than a large task does.

I think that blogs reduces the difference between schoolwork and everyday life because the blogs are small personal tasks that could be written as an informal text and therefore more personal than a formal school article.
