Tying threads together

I am trying to collect threads about blogging together so that my students can think about blogging.
Sarah's blog is very good - thanks Dr Joolz, as she is using her blog for her students.
Here is a brilliant blog about shoes - watch this space as this is a Creative Partnerships project I am involved in.
These two blogs are also about the processes and practices of artists who have a residency in museums in Doncaster, Rotherham and Barnsley - read about their artistic practices here and here.
I like the way Sheila's blog has random photos and I will do random photos this week to encourage you to put pictures up.

And here is a warning - watch what Jennifer did which is to create a blog, write the first post and sit back and wait.
She got 28 comments.

Miss Adams shoe blog is a cool idea.

It is another of my five squillion research projects but one I adore.

It sounds great!I visited the Bata Shoe Museum (one of the links from the site "A Canadian shoe museum") whilst I was in Toronto last year. There was the "footwear of the great plains" exhibition, but I don't think there's anything much I could say about it now... apart from the way in which the different patterns of adornment and the type of shoe varied according to the terrain (e.g. plains, mountain) and the tribe, which is a bit different from now - though the tribe bit still probably applies, in a different sense.
