Why blog? Blogging Challenge Day 1

Image from moodleman.net

I’ve decided to take on Bigtime Literacy’s Blogging Challenge!  Michelle has been a big supporter of my blog start-up.  I’m so thankful to her and am ready to dive in!  I can not guarantee I'll be able to stick to all of the topics for the challenge, but I'll post something daily.  If you’re interested, check out the challenge here.


DAY 1: What brings me to this new blog?  

Hmmmm...Well, I guess it is my desire to give back to those in the blogging community!  I’ve been browsing teaching blogs and investigating new ideas to implement with my students for the past three years now.  I have learned a tremendous amount from teacher bloggers around the world.  Even though I’ve never physically met these teachers, I feel I know them personally through their blogging posts and contributions to others.  

It is my hope to do the same thing...share thoughts and ideas with those who will listen, are interested in literacy as much as me, and share in my enthusiasm.  In addition, I would like to continue (because it’s been happening for a while now) to gain insight from others through their thoughts, comments, advice and suggestions.  Everyone has something to bring to the proverbial table of ideas, which is why I am taking this blogging “step”.  I’m envisioning a huge springboard with ideas flying far and wide!  

Please, if you are out there and willing to join me on my blogging journey, I’d love to have company.  By the way, does anyone have any advice to offer for a newbie in the blogging world?  These are unchartered waters for me, so I would love to hear it. :)
