Here is my blogging story. Names have been changed to protect the innocent.
For years I’ve been wanting to blog. I have stopped and started so many times, I can’t even count anymore. Every way you can think of – personally, professionally, about health, beauty, math, technology, and personal growth I’ve tried it. I’ve attended many classes and workshops. Any blogging article I’ve come across I’ve read. I started many blogs on many different platforms. All of this research and work but I was never able to put my foot to the medal. I’ve always been hesitant to share my blogs with anyone even if I managed to complete a post. For whatever reason, I always had the best of intentions but could never follow through.
With the encouragement of a friend, I’ve recently had the courage to put myself out there. Blogging is an excellent way of processing what you have done and what you have learned. I know I can benefit greatly from it. Blogging is a way for me to share what I have done and what I have learned with the world. It’s a place to celebrate accomplishments, reflect on disappointments, and share my passions. Whatever the topic, I am sharing my thoughts, baring my sole. It’s time for me to realize that my story isn’t just about me and I can help someone else who may need a little bit of encouragement.
My goal in joining the #edublogsclub is getting into a regular habit of blogging. I want to get into the habit of blogging on a regular basis and I think that this challenge will help me develop this habit. I also want to get to know other bloggers and learn from their experiences. It’s always great to see what is happening in other schools and I think the connections would be beneficial. Finally, I’m looking for accountability. I’m not expecting anyone to say, “Hey, you didn’t post this week!” However, I would like to be able to look back and have a sense of completion in that I finished this challenge develop my voice.
