I am currently taking my Language and ICT course in UKM Bangi.
Blogging is one of our assignment due to the course requirement.
This is how we expose to blogging and learn on how to create our own blog.
This is my blog which I have created in order to complete my task given.
Yet, I enjoy blogging so much now.

This must be a class project or something since this is the 4th blog to do this same comparison... ericdigests.org is *not* legit. It is a spoof site to farm Google AdSense ads. The real ERIC is at www.eric.ed.gov.
