Does anyone know of a good website platform for students that will allow 2 different blogs on the same site?  Currently, I'm using Weebly, which allows this, but it's very buggy and won't allow RSS for most of my student's blogs.

Any suggestions?

I'm also using Weebly for students with CD and AU. What bugs have you found? How about Blogger?
I can't set up RSS feeds for most of my kids. I'm thinking about Blogger, but I would like an easy platform that can handle two different blogs simultaneously. Blogger can only handle one blog with additional pages that are designed to be more static.
2 Blog feeds or 2 editors? I like with Zemanta activated because it helps with automatically linking words and suggests tags. I'm pretty sure you can set up the site for multiple editors.
@Brian Multiple blog feeds. I'd like them to use one as a reading response journal and one as a more open ended independent writing project where they need to write each week on a chosen topic that is meaningful and has a positive effect on the world. In the past, students have blogged about sports stars personal lives, government policy, ways to spend time with your family, which animals would make good pets, etc.
Perhaps a forum instead of a blog?

Have you tried ? It should do both.

It's like this ning but free and you can create subgroups, if you have multiple classes, with independent forum, calendar, photos, video and wall. I haven't used the blog feature, but it looks like any member can create their own blog, with independent feed.
Thanks Brian. I looked into, but it didn't seem very middle school friendly. It asks for too much personal information that I would rather my students didn't have the option to put out there.

I think I'm just going to have them set up two separate blogger blogs and make a link in the menu.
