Two interesting blogs

Hello everybody!

Here I am, in the blog, and I'm doing my homework for my English lesson. The task of this week is to search for two interesting blogs and I think I have found something that will attract your attention.

The first blog I suggest you to visit is entitled "Origins Origins, Origins" and deals with the origin of a typical Italian food..or better..deals with what I thought it was a typical Italian food..I'm talking about PIZZA! Before reading this blog I thought that pizza had been invented by Italians. Now I know that the version of pizza we are familiar with was invented by a Neapolitan baker but a kind of pizza was already eaten by Babylonians, Egyptians, Armenians, Greeks and Romans! The reason why I reccomand this blog to you is that it can be useful to know something more about a kind of food we eat so often; furthermore, in this way, we will be able to avoid creating a bad impression in the future!
(As I don't know if you can see the link I write you the URL:
http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=28172210&blogID=182187845 )


The second blog "I recommand to you is entitled "World Trade Center" and deals with the last film of Oliver Stone. I saw this film last week at the cinema and I think it is a very involving movie and really well done. What struck me was the fact that the two actors act the real stories of the last two persons who were saved. Of the 2763 persons who were on the World Trade Center on 11th September 2001 only 20 of them were found and saved.

As far as my brief experience with blogging is concerned I notice that the language used by bloggers is very informal and simple. Furthermore, some of them divided one paragraph from another using a space in order to facilitate the reading. Very often in the blog you can find some links which drive you to a deepening about a particular subect you are interested in.

I think that's all! See you soon on the blog!

Dear Barbara,
I found it interesting that the two blogs you found are part of two different social networks: MySpace and Multiply. I know you've got a lot to do already, but I think you might find it interesting to find out what these two programs are and how (and how much) they are used in the USA. You could then give us some feedback ;-)

Hi Barbara,
I read the blogs you suggested us to visit and I found them very interesting. Moreover, the topics you chose are really original.
I would ask you a question: which words did you use to search these arguments? Because when I put a key word not always appeared something which was related to the argument I was searching for.
I mean that if I put "halloween", it appeared something that has nothing to do with halloween. Do you understand what I'm saying?
I hope my question is clear.
That's all for the moment.
See you soon.

Dear Barbara,
since I adore PIZZA I've decided to read the blog about this fantastic food!

Like you I was sure that pizza was Italian, at least regarding its origins.

Well done, this choice about the blog is very original.

See you soon

Hi Barbara, original choice! I decided to read the blog “Origins Origins Origins” because of your comment. When I knew that it was about pizza I decided immediately to visit it. Pizza is my favourite dish, in fact I eat pizza at least twice a week.
This blog is quite short and interesting, I must admit that despite my great love for this dish I knew nothing about its origin and story. I thought that it was an ‘invention’ from Naples but that was all that I knew. When I was on Erasmus some friends from Sweden asked me about the origin of this famous Italian dish and I felt a little ashamed because I didn’t know what to tell them except the fact that pizza came from Naples. It would have been interesting to tell them this short story about its origin!!
See you soon!
Francesca
