Exactly 13 days ago, I wrote my last post. I have had many experience that were “blog worthy.” I went to EdCamp leadership in St. Louis and came to an epiphany about myself. I went a conference where I heard the author of Influencers speak. I traveled with my family and watched my son step out of his comfort zone. I participated in a powerful think tank about digital learning in my district. Why didn’t they get written? What stopped me?
I was tired. I was busy working. I’ll do it tomorrow. I am traveling. I am sure no wants to read about it anyway. I have other things to do right now. Just for the record, I hate excuses. If I did this for others, then I would have apologized. Instead I gave myself excuses.
I’ll tell you the world has a way of bringing a series of things to help me see the light. First I started reading
I had a conversation with a friend about how she really thinks that writing is great way to process and reflect. We also talked about the blogging process.
Altogether, these experiences reminded me that I need to commit to blogging. I think of my April, when I committed to blogging daily during an extremely busy part of the year. I felt grounded albeit tired. I am entering another busy period with the start of school, so I will need to process and think about my experiences.
So, I am telling you that I will commit to writing 25 posts by August 25th. I will commit to spending time every night writing. Does this scare me? Heck YES! but I will do it. I know that it what I need to do. I am going “Pro” in blogging.
