Well, the grass is NOT always greener elsewhere. I started my blogging journey here at WordPress but was told by a colleague that I would have much more success if I purchased a site. So, I took that advice, purchased a site, and did a great deal of posting. However, my attempt at gaining a following were meager. So, I am back. It seems to me that WordPress may be the place for me.
I love blogging, but with my busy schedule, I don’t always find the time I would like to flow with my passion. Next school year (2014-2015), I will be transitioning from grades 3-5 media specialist and computer technology teacher to middle school Language Arts teacher, grades 7 & 8. So, needless to say, thus far, my summer has been filled with in-service, moving materials, and attempting to read all of the new novels I will be teaching this year. I am entering my 20th year of teaching in the public education sector, and throughout my career, I have taught grades 3,4,5,7,8,9,10,11,&12. I can count grade 7 after this year. Throw in the sports and musical schedules of my daughters, and my life becomes an enormous juggling act.
So, while I hope to find some time for blogging, it is indeed going to be difficult. I plan to make every attempt, however, to post at least once a week but hopefully more. Please share in my journey with me. I am definitely going to seek out the journeys of others.
Glad to be back!
