Edublog offers a Teacher Challenge for creating a blog.
Although many from this site might be able to create one without a guide, I found the camaraderie and the step-by-step tips helped me reach a goal (even though, technically, I haven’t exactly reached my goal yet!)
Of the eight steps, I am slugging along at Step 6. My goal is to make a blog for my state’s journalism press association.
A few of the nuggets I’ve enjoyed from the on-line professional development course for educators is some widgets that I hadn’t heard of. One is Shelfari.com, which will create a bookshelf widget. I’m listing the reads from JEA One Book in my Shelfari.
Although it’s a work in progress, it’s a step toward being a better teacher of blogs, and a chance to have some fun on my own at the same time.
