Definition of Insanity… here we go again!

I guess it’s Einstein who is credited with defining insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”  Any K-12 education related post starting that way could go any number of directions… but I digress.  I’m talking about me and my less-than-illustrious blogging past.

Over the past couple years, I’ve made a few different attempts at keeping a professional blog (attempt 1, attempt 2).  I’d like to blame my petering momentum with those efforts on the fact that our department has spent the last couple of years ferreting out a new blogging solution for the district, but a recent post (Why Educators Should Blog…) at Bill Ferriter’s Tempered Radical forced me to think differently.  He suggests:

You should do it [blog] because you want to articulate your thinking and make your ideas transparent to a growing community of critics who can force you to rethink and revise. You should do it because you want to connect your thinking to the thinking of others and create new notions together. You should do it because you want to learn—and because you know that learning requires interaction.

Hmmmm.  Yes to all of the above.  The time is right, I feel like I’ve got something to say… and to learn… so here I go, again.

    A wise man (Chris Pultz) once told me that you blog for yourself. That is what I do. I have a million thoughts, ideas…etc. I have something I want to say, need to say. But, I am happy with the fact that no one reads my blog, because…umm…my thoughts, my ideas…and what I say…are…a little scary! Even to me! And yet, blogging for oneself almost seems pointless. Like you’re talking to yourself. So, good luck on this blogging attempt!
