I am a high school teacher looking for an alternative open source, browser-based, free journaling platform for student writing. I have been using Wordpress for about five years, and while it works ok, I'd like to see if there are simpler, more elegant platforms that focus just on journaling. I'd like to be able to collect rss feeds from each student's blog, have students share and read each other's work, and have some control over privacy settings when publishing their writing. If you have any suggestions, I'd be really interested to hear them. The most interesting alternative I've found so far is, which does require an extra step of signing up to Standard Notes first.
