Blogs get local

A new site currently in beta, VerveEarth, allows users to link their blogs on a GoogleMap.  You can browse blogs, newspapers and other local content in a particular state or region and view a pop-up that includes a feed of the latest posts.  Users registered at the site can also share favorites with friends and leave comments.

With the growing interest in the use of blogs in education, particularly for projects seeking to engage the local community, VerveEarth provides another outlet for viewing and promoting student work.
