Writing for Myself: Writing to Teach
I'm sticking with this blogging thing because it is hard for me. I really struggle against it, but maybe this "publicness" makes me push myself a big--write more than I usually do? I notice spelling and punctuation problems because I am usually in a hurry and I don't read it over it before I "publish." I'm wondering about fear right now. Fear holds us back. Marcia is doing her presentation on blogging and some people aren't participating. Why? This is such a great experience. Wouldn't we expect our own students to participate and try giving it a shot? But it comes down to fear. Fear that some people will read and judge what we write. I fear that, I know. But I think the writing project last year really helped me to come to the conclusion that I need to write and I have to write, and I need to share.
