Weblog or Blog? You can decide, which term you prefer. I kind of like the original term. The "OT" if you dare.
Without blogs I wouldn't have found this inspirational Prezi on 21st Century learning. I wouldn't have found "techy" suggestions for the classroom like 11 Techy Things for Teachers to Try This Year or the 30-Day Challenge. Both inspired me to implement Web 2.0 tools within the classroom. In addition, I offered students the option to create projects online. Blogging is truly a game changer, and places learning into the student's hands. Blogging can be intimidating; yet, it is more accessible than many teachers would think. I encourage all teachers to attempt their own blog. Then, try to include your students in the blog. Again, creating a blog can be scary, but like Nike says, "Just Do It!"
