I started this blog it seems like ages ago. At first it seemed like a chore. I couldn't quite figure out what to talk about and how to say something worthwhile. It felt like something I felt I should do, but didn't think anything was blog worthy. At first I made lots of references to the store I taught at and classes and things going on there. But I found that as I began to blog like I was just talking to a friend sittin' across from me at the kitchen table, it came easier and easier. Suddenly the amount of daily hits I received went up. Blogging was no longer a chore, but something I really liked to do.
Blogging allows me to make a quick note on little everyday things (that I may be able to use for future journaling segments--- a true plus, plus, plus), it IS talkin' to friends, I can share pages and cards that I could never have presented as a class (due to cost per student constraints).
So how come it took me so long to figure this out? Huh?
