Weekly SOLS can be found at Two Writing Teachers.
Eight years ago I started blogging at Check It Out. My original blog was HERE.(actually there was a year on another platform that is now defunct). It seemed so revolutionary then. Some colleagues shook their heads at the concept. But what a way to showcase student work.
By October 2006, I began my own personal writing blog, Deowriter (and have since moved to this platform).
For me, I love being in a community of writers. It’s satisfying to know that someone might read my post and connect with me in some way. And isn’t that what we strive for our students to have a community of writers.
At Check It Out, I am rethinking some of the posts I use to do such as “Who’s Reading What Wednesday?” I recently started to interview my students reading habits for “It’s Monday, What are You Reading” posts.
Both blogs give an avenue to share writing and to be part of a larger community. I am not sure where the eight years have gone but I am open to for what the next eight years brings .
