As I mentioned previously, I have felt that my reflective habits have been unravelling lately and I have found it hard to blog. But I am inspired by reading the blogs of others. Just last night reading Crib Chronicles by Bon who reflects on her mommy blog I felt touched by her openness and a sense of fellow feeling. Bon mentions blogs that inspire her and tells how much comments mean to her. That's the problem with easing up on blogging. The interaction slows down and it slumps into a vicious circle. Reading Jeff Utecht's latest article in Techlearing: A Problem with blogs eloquently explores the meaning of blogging: it is not about writing; it is about conversation. For me this is true and although his article is about students and blogging, it is no less true for teachers and others. Another day, another insight.
