Now obviously, if you've seen this blog before- you'll notice that I've been blogging for 3 years. But have I really been 'blogging'? My gut says that I'm not a blogger even though I am someone who blogs. Hmmm confusing. Well what is a 'blog' anyway?
1.A website containing a writer's or group of writers' own experiences,observations, opinions, etc., and often having
mages and links toother websites.
2. A single entry or post on such a website:
So I suppose that I am factually a blogger. Though I suppose I go about it in a pretty nonchalant way. I use this blog as more of a digital bulletin board. Weebly's built in blogging tool is extremely easy to update and to use . It enables photos and videos to be posted and posts can be easily edited.
In my personal life- Mr. Curry and I did try to an adventure blog to show you school children the joys and pleasures of going outside. However, to keep updating our adventures was time intensive and we frankly just stopped updating it. I would imagine this is the fate of many blogs- starts out to be a great idea.... then slowly you loose the passion you initially had.
It's amazing to me to think that the very tool that I use turns out to be a career choice. Isn't that just amazing about the internet though?
Ultimately, I think blogging is a great tool for me professionally and one that I will continue to use in my classroom. Yet I can't see me trying to make another blog for my personal life
