To blog or not to blog, that is the question

So I know the answer for me...yes! To blog for me is a good thing! I'm loving the possibility of "recording" my family's life in digital form and having it for however long my blog is able to be around. As many of us have mentioned, I too will be doing a blog for my digital writing project. I have even set it up already! (and I bravely link it here) I know, I know...ahead of this game with that one. It's a first, really...I usually procrastinate to the end. Anyway-very excited to get that started! As I continue to appreciate reading others' blogs and their style of writing, I only hope my writing is as interesting as some of your writing.

To blog or not to blog in the classroom...not to blog, at least for now. Our first grade team tried this 2 years ago and it was a disaster. It was when we had the Web 2.0 guy speak at the back to school workshop-we were very excited about it and all tried it out. The parents that I had come back at me with the "Whys" and the justification I had to make for doing the blogging was very wearing. I just don't know if I'm ready to try that again. Hmmm...

To end today's post, I have to share a favorite blog of mine for personal reading: http://www.mattlogelin.com/ It is raw emotion of a native Minnesotan who now lives in California and his real-life emotion after becoming a dad and losing his wife within 27 hours of each other. If you ever have time-the writing is incredible and so very real.

  1. I read some of that blog... I'm still tearing. Thanks for sharing that. And I've posted that fritter recipe everyplace I could thing of! Since we're already outside of fresh corn season, I'm going to try with frozen :)
