Taking Advantage of Blogs

The other day I decided to take some initiative and check out this website for some other blogs. In particular, I was looking for other teachers' who decided to keep blogs of their own. I stumbled across a couple really good blogs, filled with a lot of great information. The nice thing about these blogs were that they were personal. It wasn't written in a formal paper, instead, it was very down to earth and had a personal touch to it. A lot of the bloggers gave insight, talked about observations they made, and gave some great ideas for lesson plans. I found some blogs that even discussed topics that we've touched upon in class. It just made me realize how much information and how many opportunities are at our fingertips. There are other people, just like us, who have experienced similar things like us, and they are also keeping blogs! I think blogs are a great opportunity to reach out to others and share ideas. I'm not sure how long or if I will keep the blogs going, but I will definitely continue to check out blogs done by others. Not only blogs, but other websites also carry vasts amounts of information. I would definitely recommend to you guys to check out some other blogs. See what other teachers' are going through and check out some lesson plans that have been taught and were successful. You never know what you'll find! (: 


  1. I really like the idea of keeping a blog as a teacher. Not only can you help others, but you can help yourself keep track of what you have done in the past and what has worked as well as what hasn't. I can imagine that after being a teacher for 10+ years it gets hard to keep track of everything you've done by memory!

  2. I agree with Alyssa and you. I feel like I will have alot to owe to other teachers and their blogs/websites later in life!
