359. What was I thinking?


On Wednesday I have a presentation to give to my educational colleagues about my blog. Months ago it seemed like a good idea - now I am not so sure. I called the presentation, "Blogging, Creativity, and the Power of Practice". What the heck does that mean? And what did I (and my students) get out of this ordeal that I can quantify and discuss in front of other college professors? What was I thinking? Have I been thinking?

The weird thing is this last couple weeks I don't feel I have much to say. Normally I am fairly opinionated and it is hard to shut me up. Sure I had days in the last year where I didn't want to stay up late and write, but I usually had something on my mind. Lately... blank. With seven posts left to go why does writers block have to set in now. Why not a week from today when, for the first time in a year, I won't have to write a nightly post.

  1. Your thinking too much. Write what you feel and the words will fall into place. As long as we have known each other you have never been at a loss for words (I mean that in a good way). So, sit down, relax, cear your head, and write seven more great additions to your blog.....oh, and one presentation.

  2. Maybe you can share the posts that you liked the most...and tell us why (was it the picture or what you wrote).

    Another topic could be advice to new bloggers when they take on a task such as this...

    And yet another - reflect on all that has happened during the past year and how, probably for the first time, you documented it.

    Just some random thoughts!

  3. This is my favorite photo of the whole year. I think. There were many that were really affecting. I love the one further up of your mom and her sister. I love so many of them actually. Maybe the point of all this was to expose yourself to people who might not otherwise have the chance. I hadn't seen your photos in over 20 years. You rock.
