Too late to blog?
October 25, 2011

Is it too late to blog? Has blogging lost its cool? Am I year’s behind everyone else? Yes maybe but does that mean it’s too late to start?

Can I blog a blogger? Is that cool?

So I have recently caught onto the existence of blogs about teaching.

Yes it is embarrassing to admit that the thought hadn’t entered my mind until a colleague discovered Colleen Young’s blog Mathematics, Learning and Web 2.0 about Midd Spots. Wow, a whole new world appeared. Soon after I discovered Larry Ferlazzo’s blog Websites of the Day, and the rest is history!

No it’s not too late, of course not. Does it matter if its cool? No. Am I year’s behind? Yes some but no it’s not too late to start. After all I wouldn’t be a teacher if I answered any differently.

Thank you to those bloggers, Colleen and Larry who have been an inspiration and brought sparkle to my teaching.

Now I hope to spread the word and share good practice. Wish me luck!

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It’s never to late to blog! I only started Mathematics, Learning and Web 2.0 to learn about WordPress, then I decided it might be a good way to organise my favourite resources and share that information. Next other people seemed to find this useful! This year I saw the WordPress postaweek challenge and 2011 has seen the first new year resolution I have kept till November (and will continue)!

    So I wish you the very best with your blogging ventures – it’s a great thing to do – just write.
    Here’s a post by Sacha Chua I like on why we should write it all down!
