As you know my students are avid bloggers and this year is no different. Their thoughts about the world, their lives, and what we do are reaching students and adults around the world. Although they have a blogging challenge every week, many times my students choose to blog on their own whatever their thoughts may be. I was thrilled to see this reflective post from Rose, as she battles with a question that many of us battle with.
It’s not what it sounds like.I’m writing on my IPAD again, and I was just thinking, blogging is hard. I know I sound crazy, but it kind of is, you would think that you just hop on the computer and write about exciting events. maybe that happens to other people, but I think it can be difficult to balance it all. To blog, you need something exciting that is worth writing about, but you can’t write about things if you are out doing those exciting things.
I run on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 2-ish hours, and I dance every other Wednesday I could sit here typing all about how we learned a mini dance to Applause. I could say how I ran over two miles on both Tuesday, and Thursday. Bu when I get home, I’m tired from doing those things. Or I just don’t have time. Don’t get me wrong, I love blogging, even on my old IPAD. I wouldn’t stop. But it is hard, sometimes.
Mostly the time part, I barely have the time or energy to blog sometimes, never the less comment!! All the people commenting on my, and my friends blogs, my figurative hat is off to you. How do you do it? I believe I will go comment on some blogs now, because I have the time and energy.
If you’ve the time, then please comment and honestly, tell me how you do it, how you manage to read blogs, comment on blogs, and presumingly, blog. I really would like to know.
So how do we do it? Where do we find the time and why is it important? You can comment here or directly on Rose’s blog.
