Happy New Year 2017!

Another New Year’s Resolution to Blog

Beginning 2017

I didn’t make it until midnight on NYE this year.  I was exhausted.  So, when I woke up at 6:30 a.m. with my kids, I thought about the New Year’s of 2016.  My big New Year’s resolution was to blog.  I looked back and on January 2, 2016, this is what I posted:

Last year, my New Year’s resolutions were to get on Twitter and to blog.  So, I got on Twitter very successfully, but the blogging didn’t happen.  2016 will be my year to blog.

It didn’t happen

That is OK. But, I will try again.  On January 2, 2017, I looked in my e-amil to see a message from a newsletter that I subscribe to claiming that it is easier to blog when others are blogging with you and you all are holding each other accountable.  I believe that.  So, I signed up to be part of the #Edublogsclub.

Prompt #1 – My Blog Story

As you can see, I have some experience in blogging.  Last year, I made it through March and my goal this year is to make it until at least the summer.  If I can blog all year, I will be thrilled! I enjoy writing and sharing my knowledge and story, but it is hard to dedicate the time every week to blog.  I like the idea that quantity is more important than quality so I hope to keep that in mind each week as I blog.

I enjoy reading other blogs.  It is helpful to me when I subscribe to the blog and receive the updates in my e-mail.  Then, I can read a summary and, if necessary, go to the website to read more.  One of my favorite blogs is Eric Curts’ Control Alt Achieve.  He always provides me with so many ideas that I can share with my colleagues.  If you haven’t looked at it, I encourage you to do so.

Thanks #EdublogsClub for encouraging me to blog again!  This is a great idea!
