So my experience with blogging is very limited. I am aware of what a blog is and how it can be used in an educational setting as well as for personal reasons. I haven't really ever felt the need to use one as I teach in elementary school and I was teaching second graders. While most second graders probably could use a blog, I just didn't see where I could use it. Also that required a lot of planning and permission slips and I will admit I can be pretty lazy at times.
Meanwhile that is totally not where I wanted to go with my first post. I wanted to talk about my experience with creating this blog. Now I love gadgets and playing around with the newest technology until I have a better understanding of it, but WOW there were many things going on with the making of this blog. It all started off pretty basic with choosing a title for the blog, creating a web address and so on. This was all easily completed. When I actually got to the personalizing of the blog was when I was on visual overload.
Blogger has about a million different gadgets you can have on your blog and I was not sure what half of them did. Most of the ones I chose to have on this blog were chosen because I liked the graphic next to their description. That's how technical I am. "Oooh look at that pretty picture." My goal before my next post will be to actually use these gadgets in order to make my blog more efficient. Wish me luck!
