I find blogging scary. You are out there. So, I decided that I would slide into it. I'd write about reading and learning and teaching. It is easier to write about things you are passionate about. Even if the entries were just for me.
Then, I decided to Twitter. I kept reading about how it opens up a whole new world for educators. Once, again, I opted to just dip my toe in. I knew about Donalyn Miller's (Book Whisperer) #Bookaday Challenge: reading a book every day (or somewhat close to it) during the summer break. I figured I would start out Twitter doing the #bookaday. It has only been less than a week. I find it overwhelming. I keep googling questions on how to do things there.
These are learning experiences, I tell myself. My teacher voice tells me that this is the important part: the process. This is what I tell my students: it will get easier.
