After posting a link to my listserv that led to this blog, I was amazed (and saddened) at the number of school districts that block all of the blog sites.
I decided to move my blog "inside" to my own server, one of the options available from Blogger. After testing it with lots of teachers, this DOES allow the filtered sites to access it. In addition, the dreaded "next blog" tab should not work in those schools if the next blog was sitting on Blogger's server.
The new postings do not show up on the old blog, so, if you are going to do this, post a note about the move before you make the move. (Learn from my mistake!) The URL for the blog, from 1/18/06 on, is http://kathyschrock.net/blog/
