Dear Gilmar,

I just loved the song. So deep and wonderful, deep voice...I didn't know her. Thanks for sharing!

You're doing a great job here. Well, just some questions to see if I got right. So, the focus of this blog will be music? Who do you think your public would be? What could you post together with the YouTube video that would encourage people to start a conversation here? Remember, blogs are a place for open dialogues, where people feel like sharing something and others to add their views. How would you provoke a reaction from your readers?

A suggestion. Generally, the "about" part of the sidebar is on the top of it. Then, you add the other "widgets".

As you're really fond of music, you should take a look at http://mixwit.com, http://lastfm.com and http://blipfm.com . You can make a playlist on these places and share with others. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun and could even use them in the classroom!

Thank you for the hints. I guess I managed to change the order of the widgets though I must confess it took me sometime to learn how to do it. I really want to hear from other people if they use music in the classroom and how they manage to do that, if they try to please everybody, how they select what to share. However, the blog should not be music related only. I'm eager to hear from all of you and share ideas about teaching EFL as a
whole.

I'm really glad you've liked it Ana. Loreena is a very special artist.

Hi Gilmar,

I liked your blog a lot. It's very neat. I want to learn how to add videos, too.

Hi Ana Albi...
I'm glad you liked it. It's very simpl to add the videos. To be very honest I learned it by chance - lol. I'll check it out and then I'll tell exactly how I did it.
