I was at a meeting over the summer and I ran into a technology coach who told me that he'd been following my blog.
This shocked me. Someone was following my blog? It hadn't occurred to me that even though I'd been subscribing to RSS feeds via Google Reader, maybe my own blog's URL would be plugged into someone else's must-read list.
So I resolved at that meeting to blog more. Only I didn't.
Then at the Tech Forum Palisades conference a couple of weeks ago, I co-presented with Zac Chase, a talented SLA teacher. He asked me if I was coming to Educon in January and told me that he'd checked out my blog.
Then I felt guilty. I hadn't posted in months! So once more I resolved to post more often. And now I am.
I realize I can't have it both ways. I can't encourage my staff and students to blog if I'm not blogging. And I can't maintain a digital footprint that is only occasionally updated.
So if you're reading this post, thank you. If you subscribe to my blog, I appreciate it. I will try my best to keep the posts coming.
