Thanks to Lisa Thumann, I’ve been tagged for this meme. I need to reveal 7 things folks may not know about me. Here goes. If I am wearing socks, they MUST exactly match my pants. I have had winter “britches” hang in my closet never to be worn before because I could not find the […]
Someone asked me today why blog? Will Richardson has summarized it well here and here. He also shows exactly why blogging is a great tool. It’s not about the expertise of the writer. It’s about the expertise of all the writers who come, read, and respond with a comment. It’s FABULOUS conversations that stretch my […]
Back in early January my principal, Mary Clark, asked me to help her set up a blog. She wanted to explore this “blogosphere” I speak of so frequently, and she wanted to begin with her own blog first. That has finally happened, and now she is the author of her very own blog, appropriately titled […]

One of my favorite edubloggers (who resides in a folder for Experts in my reader) has set up a new location for his blog. That’s right friends, David Jakes, expert at Digital Storytelling Guru (just to name a few of his many educational tech skills/expertise) has created a new web presence and moved his blog […]
Since I’m considering a location change, I’m dabbling with the thought of changing the name of my blog too. I Googled TechnoTuesday, and found a rather comical but raunchy site (which i won’t link to here). My blog was born October 1, 2006 on Blogger[correction-July 2006], but I moved it to Edublogs October 31, 2006, […]
