I missed a very important anniversary in the annals of my blogging career.
Ten years ago on October 21, 2007 – I published my first ever blog post.
It was really riveting stuff – about two paragraphs and had me wondering what the hell I was going to use or do with this blogging thing.
I just want to talk a bit about how difficult it is to teach in today’s world. How do you decide how to teach with Blogs, Wikki, OpenSource, Proprietary, Google, FaceBook, YouTube, TeacherTube and everything else that is out there to “help” you teach. All these things that I am just starting to see, but not yet use in the classroom. I am willing to start, but am feeling very overwhelmed.Technology is not new to me, I have been using computers since the old Vic 20 with a cassette tape as an OS, but I am a bit intimidated about using all these web based applications to “assist” me in my classroom teaching.
If anyone out there can assuage my uncertainty or give me some helpful hints to help me be successful 😉Thanks
Lke I said riveting stuff, but that is where I started. There are not too many people out there that read that post that day – well maybe Craig Suttie, but he is about the only one.
Actually that was a pretty significant milestone for me – who would have thought that I would keep writing posts for the next 10 years.
My career as a blogger had very humble beginnings, to getting heavily involved in the Edublogging world (Education), then after I left teaching searching for a new focus for the blog I tried a few thing, but eventually settled into the space where I am primarily still writing – the RunBlogging world.
Hard to believe, but I have been writing about my running since 2011 – a long time to write about something that I am not really all that good at – so I guess the joke is on me. 🙂 Continue reading “Blogging Anniversary – Missed”
