Blogging 101

Blogging is not difficult, but I am a perfectionist in many ways and like things to work exactly the way I expect them to in my head. I have been following several awesome blogs for a while now and decided to give it a go on my own.

(To see some of my favorite bloggers, click here.)

For a long time I thought I had nothing to offer, but I realized...I do know a few things, and would like to learn more. (Learn by doing--what a novel idea!) If I can help one teacher improve a lesson or integrate an engaging technology, it will be worth it. Plus, I enjoy writing and sharing technology ideas.

I stared by researching where to begin a blog. I tried a couple of websites and they are not all created equal. I already had a Google account, and Blogger is very easy to use, so here I am.

Setting up a blog on Blogger is easy and if you just click around long enough, you'll find what you need. There are also help pages out there and if you Google your question, you are sure to find an answer.

I am especially proud of figuring out how to link my blog posts to an account at Twitterfeed.com so that my new posts automatically get tweeted on my behalf.

Of course my Number 1 rule of blogging is to remember that your blogs go out to the whole wide word, so be careful and ethical the whole way.
