Why blog?

Why spend time blogging? Why bother. I hear this sometimes, and frankly I sometimes think the same thing. The blogosphere is huge; what difference does my voice make? Dr. Scott McLeod over at Dangerously Irrelevant recently conducted a survey of educators who blog. I'd mentioned it here, and I also went and completed the survey.

Dr. McLeod has posted the the results. I found it fascinating; he did a great job summarizing the results. Here's the meat and potatoes for me:

Voice; community; learning. I'm not sure about the state of public education in America, but I'm pretty certain we have some awesome teachers.

Do see Dr. McLeod's full report here.

Iam just beginning to blog and have spent my "sick day" looking and responding to various blogs. I have learned a great deal and even got ideas for units. I hope to have other teachers/educators visit my blog too. So far only two posts and not many comments. I enjoyed reading your blog.
