While in grad school, I had to maintain a blog for a semester talking about clickers and Second Life. Once the class was over, I never wrote another post. My hope is that this time it will stick and I can pass on what I learn to my students and other interested people.
Setting up the blog was pretty painless although I had a difficult time choosing the blog address. In one sense, I believe the Internet is trending toward the use of real names but on the other hand, I want to maintain my privacy. So, I used my initials along with part of my last name in the address and gave the blog a totally different name. Not sure if I will keep it the way it is but for now and the purpose of the class it will stay as is.
I follow many blogs about different topics: silly, creative, books, serious, sports, and many others. I don’t read them as much as I would like but I find them useful. Hopefully someone in this world will see my blog and find something useful too someday.
