With the constant flow of information I get through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn discussions, and email, it would seem I should have never-ending sources of inspiration for this blog.
But maybe too much information kills inspiration. At least nothing has really set the blogging fire burning again -- until today.
For a long time, I have been thinking of blogging more about teaching and especially my field, teaching English as a Foreign Language. But it seems hard to get started when so many have already gone so far with it.
Then yesterday, I ran into this tweet from fellow EFL teacher Janet Biachini, whom I have been following on Twitter for a while:
I read her post Quattro, and thought "I really should be doing something like that."
Sure, I've read plenty of educational blogs over the years. But something about how Janet simply stated her reasons for blogging, which range from "to share my teaching ideas" to writing about the region she lives in, made it sound simple.
I can do that. And I want to, very much.
The World from my Windows may be taking a different turn: less travel, more teaching, and hopefully a lot less "I want to be blogging again but why can't I get going on it" angst.
Affaire à suivre...
