Spread the love

I initially made a number of half-hearted attempts at blogging in 2007 but didn’t seriously start using blogging tools until I was awarded an opportunity to become an online  “community blogger” for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. It was during that year that I  discovered the seminal work of  my “virtual” mentor the indefatigable, never seems to sleep Jane Hart. I was also  blessed to have a supportive editor who gave me free license to explore Web 2.0 tools and to write about whatever I cared to write about. Given that freedom to explore, I rediscovered the joys and challenges of writing. The following year I was given the opportunity to teach a semester-long course on Web 2.0 learning tools to 25 college freshmen and blogging was a tool I introduced to them.  I blog when I feel I have something to say that might be of interest to others. I have an interest in life-long learning and in sharing what I learn. I have no particular interest in having a large number of followers, but I welcome feedback and, as time allows, I will acknowledge it. I’ve “met” a large  number of interesting individuals in the past few years who have enriched my life and informed my teaching and learning. Let’s learn together.
