So you’ve got a blog – what will you do with it?
While I was dithering about whether I should have a blog, I was thinking about exactly what it would be for me. I have a list!
- A place for sharing pictures – good, but Facebook does that.
- A place for promoting photographic work – better than number 1!
- A place for sharing musing – not really my style.
- A place to write down (type in? got to find out what people think about that one) every thought that pops into my head – not my style and twitter does that.
- A place for sharing ideas – better than numbers 3 & 4!
- A place to muck around and see what cool stuff I can do.
- A tool for learning how to do something useful – better than number 6!
As the list reveals, every idea was eventually followed by a better one – and not always in neat little 1, 2 steps like you see here. I guess that as a teacher, I know that thinking and planning always beats jumping in when it comes to doing something meaningful. But here’s what I discovered – my epiphany, if you will:
My blog is not necessarily meaningful!
There, I said it! This really is just going to be all about Number 1 and Number 6 (with a little bit of Number 2, as you’ll see in the previous post). I finally made the connection that I don’t have that much to say – at least not that will drastically change anyone’s life, anyway – but I do really like playing with techy stuff. I am a little late to the blogoshpere, but hey, who’s worried about being late these days? Certainly not my cat.
