Why I Started Blogging

Why I Started Blogging



Oh, blogging!

It’s true that I’ve had this blog for a very short time, but I’ve been journaling and blogging for years now. I’ve kept a *paper journal* for seventeen years and had a *LiveJournal* in high school and college, and then kept a public travel blog while I lived in Europe. It was a natural transition to this blog, or so I thought.

In reality, it’s pretty challenging to write this blog. I don’t have the same sorts of natural followers and comments that I had on my other blogs, since those were largely friends and family keeping in touch. I’m also currently between classrooms, since I am a military spouse mid-move. This means that it’s hard to stay focused on educational issues sometimes.

However, since this blog is still growing, I figured I’d share the vision with you of what I hope it will someday be.

The Vision

I want this blog to be a collection of:

*ideas I’m working on in the classroom and private tutoring settings (ex. Using Newsy in the Classroom)
*book reviews and recommendations for you and your students (ex. Fever 1793)
*author interviews & bio info for books you can teach (ex. Interview with Cat Hellisen)

    I have always kept a paper journal. I hadn’t made the connection but I guess that is a lot like blogging. I can totally understand the transition into an educational blog and the struggles of that. I have been at it a year now and there are a lot of ups and downs as I work through what and when to post. I think author interviews is a wonderful idea and I would love to see more of those posts!
