Week 2 - Why I Started Blogging

Monday, June 1, 2015
I'm linking up with Monica over at I Heart Grade 3 for her Weekly Summer Link-Up.  This week's topic is Why I Started Blogging.
When I was in Teacher's College, one of our course requirements was how to blog. We were assessed on our creativity, content, and color.  We had to add visuals to our blogs.  We had to make sure that our blogs were interactive. We had to have links that directed parents and students to other educational websites.  We also had to comment on each other's blogs.  I truly enjoyed that course!  It was a hands-on and engaging course!  However, once the course was over and done with, my blog was neglected and forgotten.  

Fast forward to the following summer.

That summer, I was perusing through Pinterest and I came across all these wonderful and collaborative educators...
I was amazed by all their creativity.  
I was inspired by their talents.
I was motivated by their teaching passion.  

Reading everyone's educational blogs inspired me to also be a part of this wonderful collaborative world.
And, thanks to my course, I felt confident that I would be able to take an a new venture.  Thus, my blog was born.

Do you blog?  What inspired you to blog?

  1. Wow! I love the idea that one of your course requirements was to blog! Man, I could have used a course back when I started! My first crack at blogging was with a WordPress free template, and then I *tried* to do one on my own. TOTAL DISASTER! I gave up and hired someone to do it for me. I know where my talents lie - and blog design is NOT one of them. lol!

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. Collaborating is what we do naturally as teachers so it is great to use social media and blogging to share our ideas. I think it is neat they teach blogging now in college. I wish they focused more on technology when I went to school. I am also in the link up. I posted why I started blogging here: http://twinkleteaches.blogspot.com/2015/06/weekly-summer-link-up-why-i-started.html
    Happy blogging!
