The irony of starting a new blog and then failing spectacularly to add anything to it has not escaped me. In the next few days I’m planning on adding a series of posts that I’ve been trying to find the time to write for the last few months. Most of these, in the spirit of the new blog, will be a lot more focused on classroom practice than was the case on the old blog, although there will still be musings and random tangents I expect.
My big worry is that once term gets going again I’ll slip out of blogging again as the other things on the to do list become more urgent. To try and stop that from happening I’m going to try adopting two ideas.
Post every day if possible, every other if not. I hope this way I won’t let the habit die. It will also keep my blogging focussed on classroom practice.
Stop aiming for perfection. I have a terrible habit of wanting to spend hours on something before I’m happy with it. That’s been the biggest problem for me in the last few months in a whole range of areas, so I’m planning (within reason) to move to a ‘get it done and get it out’ approach.
I’m currently thinking I might try and use some of my lunch to get stuff written in, but I don’t know how that will work in the cold light of term. Those of you who are bloggers yourselves, when do you find time to blog?!?!
