Admittedly, I have always cast blogging aside, saying I have “no time” to blog on top of all of my other professional responsibilities. But, that’s just it. I didn’t consider blogging to be professional or my responsibility. This blog even was setup for a class I was taking on social media‘s role in education (#udsnf12 @mathplourde).
Toward the end of the semester, I had the opportunity to write a “free choice” post. To my surprise, it landed four times the number of visitors than any of my other posts. (Yes, I had been monitoring my blog’s stats as a sort of pride thing) That’s when it dawned on me. Fellow educators do want to read about the goings on of their peers. One resolution I made (in secret until now) was that I would continue to blog, and I would blog consistently (or at least that’s the plan now).
