I blog, therefore I reflect.

A blog is a reflection. But what about reflecting about blogging? Why should we blog?

As professionals, learners, knowledge enthusiasts and digital citizens, blogging opens a new world for us. That is why I decided to think about my blogging. And, in the process, I found some interesting resources that helped me put my thoughts together.

bloggingBecause, as Lorelle estates:

“Your blog is your unedited version of yourself.”


“Yes, blogging is entertainment. It is performance. Each blog post a show, sometimes an opera, sometimes a 30 second commercial. Like a show, it may start with a bang, lead you along from song to song, have a great climatic moment, then leave the audience wanting more.”

Lorelle, what an excellent resource of never-ending information!

But, what really summarizes what I consider to be the key components of teacher blogging is beautifully explained in Henrietta’s wonderful Prezi. Thanks Henrietta!

Why blogging? Blogging to become better educators, to improve our practices, to reflect on our approaches, to share, to showcase our classroom, and to provide a better educational experience day after day, year after year. Blogging rocks!


One thought on “Metablogging

  1. I have only gotten into blogging recently as part of my academic program at Full Sail. I can see the value of sharing ideas with other educators as part of a Personal Learning Network, but didn’t think I would get enough followers to my blog if I started one.
