Creating a blog, one that I will be able to use long after my EC&I 831 class, was my original plan. In fact, I was very enthusiastic about the prospect of finally being “forced” to blog about something. I thought I would take the time to include reading and writing aspects that I am fond of and would want to share with others, in particular teachers in my school division.
I set out to work on my blog that I had created in Blogspot a couple of years ago at a summer short course. As I “widgeted” and added pages I quickly realized that this Blogspot spot was extremely limited and not what I had envisioned.
So I looked through my notes from the summer short course I took two years ago and realized that I had created a second blog that laid untouched. This second neglected blog was WordPress. Again, I posted and created links, changed settings and sought out links to add. Only to become insanely frustrated as I was continuously getting lost within my own blog!
Clayton Boyer, or as my husband refers to him, the Jedi Blog Master, came to my rescue. Within seconds he showed me the in’s and out’s of Postach.io. Through Evernote, I could type my thoughts, click a button and voila! Posts on my third blog.
Why oh why am I back to my blog on WordPress? Because I am stubborn and not willing to let the world of technology beat me! Plus the bells and whistles are too enticing not to give it a second try. If the world of blogging could leave bruises- I would be black and blue!
