Today brings to a close the fourth year I have maintained this blog. Much has changed in those four years, including relocating my home a couple of times as well as changing jobs three times. What? yeah. If your curious about either of these, you’ll have to ask in person.
It has been hosted in Blogger, Edublogs, and now on my own domain using WordPress. Why keep it up? I love the feel of writing for a virtual audience. And often times those in my virtual audience inspire and encourage me to continue along this path.
Thanks for the original inspiration Doug Johnson, Joyce Valenza, Will Richardson, and so many more–these are the virtual mentors who introduced the concept to me so long ago at the then known as NECC Conference in Philadelphia, PA back in 2005.
I began reading all these bloggers I was exposed to back then right away, and by the next year (2006 NECC – San Diego) had a blog of my own for the purpose of sharing and learning along the way.
I’m still plugging away at it, as are many of my virtual and real mentors and friends. It has been a rich and rewarding experience so far, which keeps me at it. Lifting my virtual glass to the beginning of year five as a blogger, for continued sharing and more learning of my own.
