By the numbers, it’s day 11 in my bogging adventure and this is my 35th post. What fun! Here’s what I have learned:
- As a species, bloggers are really kind. They encourage one another, take the time to read what others write, and comprise a HUGE library of voices, images, events, ideas, and everyday life.
- WordPress makes it easy to blog. There’s even a little tab that pops up once in while to see if I need help. I’m not sure what triggers that, but I feel supported.
- I am too focused on my stats. I watch those blue boxes rise and fall, fall, fall. Then I fret, fret, fret.
- I am too focused on my stats. That prompts me to remember why I am doing this: I’d like to contribute to the wonderful world of special education.
- I am so grateful to be in special education. It is the perfect fit for me!
- Blogging enables me to communicate with folks from all over the place. I love that! I love looking at the flags from all the countries where people have read this blog. It’s my vicarious world traveling.
- I have a new definition of “slug.” Thanks, WordPress.
- My husband is wondering if this is a good idea.
- I am drawn to blogging instead of Spider Solitaire. I think that’s probably good.
- Blogging is not what I had imagined. I thought it was going to be impossibly difficult, but it’s a delight.
Can you tell me: What is it like to have blogged for a month? A year? What have you learned through your blogging experiences?
