  1. this is stupid- how is it a blog for 30,000 students to share their opinions and views when you only have like 8 bloggers who hardly talk about the hard news

  2. That sounds like a lot of trouble to through just to be a blogger. Anyone could just setup their own account for free on Blogger, WordPress, etc.
