I'm curious about wanting them to be in the Richmond area, too (tho' Im not directly connected with GED folks here), but think it's a great idea.

Hi Richard,

That sounds like an interesting topic. I have been collecting examples of
both student and teacher blogs, but I don't have anything from GED
classes, so I will be interested to see what you find or develop. I hope
you will share your project with the list!

I'd be really interested to see blogs from GED or HS diploma students
anywhere in the world. Do we have some out there?

Marian
