To be honest with you I have learned a great deal from the internet. I'm not sure if I learned anything from blogs or forums, but online publishings of scholarly papers have greatly increased my knowledge. I believe in the right setting, with a scholarly author, that a blog could be extremely benefitial for educational purposes. I learned most of my knowledge of nutritional supplementation from papers that a nutritionist has posted on the internet. As a coach I wanted to know what was going on inside my players bodies when they took different things, and this nutritionist has helped me. That being said, when I am researching on the internet it can be extremely hard to keep focus. I find it especially difficult when I google search something and I do not find it on the first two pages. This is the point when my brain starts wondering off and I end up looking up something that I didn't intend to. While blogging is not the academic guiding light that some people believe, I cannot disagree that the advances in technology have greatly benefited the public through education. If it weren't for technology we would still be reading books printed on papyrus with the help of our handy dandy lantern.
