What I have learned regarding Blogging (and reading them)

January 31, 2008~ I have learned there is not enough hours in the day. I am thoroughly enjoying all the information out there on the blogs but just realized I have spent the better part of my day getting "lost" in the world of blogs and rss feeds. I read and come across an interesting topic, software, strategy and then want to practice with that idea so as to try to incorporate it into my classrooms. However, I need to perhaps schedule my time better. Although reading, learning, and exploring are part of my job description, getting off my schedule and almost missing a class is a bad thing. I do believe, however, this will be resolved once I get my rss feeds organized and up to date. Until then, I may set my calendar appointments to remind me five minutes before so I will not miss anything.....


  1. I too am having trouble finding time to do everything I need to do. I am a Curriculum Facilitator and Technology Coordinator at a middle school.I am also teaching an online class, taking this one and helping my husband with another. I am finding these blogs to be very interesting and I find myself going off on tangets. A few minutes ago I went into a classmate's blog and somehow it loading over 40 times on my computer. I found your blog especially interesting because I was a Technology Coach for 3 years.

  2. Hey there, Robin! You've done a wonderful job establishing your blog. I have enjoyed going through the various links and have found good information and ideas. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Robin, it is the hardest thing in the world for me to stay on top of technology education for myself. I find myself trying to catch up on 150 blog feeds. twitter, educational journal, and keep sanity in my life. Sometimes its not possible. I don't know how some people can blog everyday, twit 20X a day, teach/train, read articles, reflect, and take care of themselves/family.

    One practice I am trying to adopt is taking one hour a week to read/research at work. REGARDLESS of everything I have to do for my 10 schools. I want to make it part of my schedule. I will have to keep you posted on my success.

    BTW, thanks for adding me to your blogroll. :)
