When I think about teaching the TICs come to my mind, so as to catch my students' attention to the fact that learning is fun, is modern, connects to everything and gives them power, the power of knowledge.
So if you asked me why I'd like to try blogging I would say:
1) Blogging is an excellent tool to enhanced reading and writing.
2) You can include all kinds of material and links in a blog.
3) Both students and teachers can take different roles in the construction of a blog, that is to say, they can be moderators, writers, commenters, etc.
4) Blogging in English might allow a class to communicate to any people in the world as it is a widespread highly used language internationally.5) Using a blog can also help us as a class to have a kind of backup or small library of material, resources, portfolios, social events, calendars of events; which in time will be helpful for other groups of students.
