I have noticed that while many people link this blog — for which I am grateful — it remains low-profile. I know the main thing I can do to change that is simply to update more. That’s not so easy, but I suppose it is something I will have to make time for if I really wish to get this blog “out there.”
I suppose my question (here I go possibly opening a can of worms or worse) is what can I do to make this blog a better reading experience for you? Keep in mind there are some non-negotiables:
- I will not post negative comments about my school, colleagues, students, or their parents. I post under my real name, and I do not wish to bring trouble upon myself in order to entertain anyone else. Actually, to be honest, there isn’t much negative stuff to post.
- I don’t want to feel pressured to update every day. I am a full-time English teacher with three children, two of whom are small children, and I have only so many hours in the day. I would like to update more, but I cannot commit to updating daily.
- I will not post anything I would feel uncomfortable about my parents, adminstrators, students, or their parents reading. In fact, at one time or another, I think representatives from all of those groups have visited this blog, and I am committed to representing myself, my school, and my profession in a positive light.
That said, I’m willing to take suggestions.
