Bloggin' Kickin' Dreamin'
Back in November or December I had read about the "30 Day Kick Start Your Blogging" Challenge. I thought that it might be nice to start blogging, but quite honestly I was afraid to take the Challenge in the event I couldn't do the entire 30 days. So I decided I would try to create my own blog on my own. That was the beginning of my blog, Teaching is Elementary, which is a professional blog. Not really sure the direction it would take, but it was my intention to share some stories, some experiences and some resources.
Why did you join the Teacher Challenge’s 30 Days to Kick Starting your Blogging?
Just yesterday I got an email from a friend of mine (thanks Cheryl) asking me to try the challenge. So, I here I am trying my hand with the hopes that I'll be able to keep up with everyone. I am always advising my students to take a risk in the classroom and I guess I'm taking my own advice.
Why do you want to learn more about blogging?
I wonder: Am I being full of myself? Do I really have anything to say that would be useful/interesting to others? And if I do, how can I get the word out? These are the questions that I'm hoping this Challenge will help me answer.
What aspects of blogging have you struggled with?
Hmmm....mostly I struggle with audience....so far it has been my family and friends reading and responding. My intention that this blog be a 'professional' blog so I'm struggling with HOW to get my blog read? I welcome all ideas. Also, technically wondering how to add a caption to a photo (as I meant to give credit to the last photo I used.).
So, here I am bloggin', kickin' and dreamin'!
