Learning about managing Blogs!

How do I manage these blogs effectively?
I have a class of year 5 & 6 students some of whom are keen and are able to manage their learning well while others are not so keen.
How do I make blogs an effective tool even for those who are not keen writers or able to sit down and craft a post on their own?
How am I able to help them to find a voice?

What management strategies do I need to ensure that I see all of the students on a regular basis?  What are effective tools that I can use that will light that fire within each and every one of them?

Introduction: - Who are we?

Room 7 are really looking forward to Quadblogging with three other schools in New Zealand.  We have been linked by Barbara Reid to Koromatua School in Hamilton, Goodwood School in Hamilton and Edendale Primary in Southland.  What is Quadblogging?  It is when we have the opportunity to look at and give feedback on other students work. What a great opportunity to see and get ideas from other students the same age as us.
Who are we?
28 year 5 & 6 students + 1 teacher.  We live in Hastings in the Hawkes Bay.  There are 202 students at our school and Room 10 are the other Yr 5/6 class.  We are a very busy class and we are discovering how digital devices can help us with our learning.
