When I first started, I didn’t know many people who blogged and some people looked at me funny when I said that I blogged. Now there are many blogs out there on many different subjects.
Reasons I started:
I wanted to reflect on my past teaching practices.
I wanted to share my teaching strategies with others.
I wanted to stay connected with other educators.
I wanted to refine, reflect, and refresh my teaching philosophy.
Reasons I continue to blog:
I want to share my experiences so that new and struggling teachers will have an easier time.
I want to share my beliefs and opinions about the education system.
I want to give links to sites that I think might be good resources for the classroom so that teachers don’t have to waste a lot of time looking for useful sites.
I want to review books and products so that other teachers can find out about these things without having to spend too much time doing this on their own.
I want to stay connected with other educators.
I want to continue to learn from others.
Do you blog? If so, why do you do so? And if you have blogged for over a year or more, please share whether your reasons have changed since then.
