Since starting my blog a few weeks ago, I have continued to struggle asking myself ‘What is blog-worthy?’. So much has been going on that, at the end of the day, all I want to do is disconnect and unwind. As much as I try to do this, it is in itself a struggle.
For the past four years as e-Learning Contact for my school board, I have been entrenched in an online community that has become a big part of who I am and what I do. It has even reached a point that I am noticing that I cannot be without my mobile devices to simply see what’s going on in my Twitter feed, checking my email, responding to teacher requests, and of course following the latest news in world and in education. Television is no longer enough; with all of this information readily available at my fingertips, I want to know everything as soon as it’s happening.
I reflected on this thought only recently as I was sitting around the other night, catching myself surfing for no reason at all. Instead I should have been relaxing and/or focusing on family and friends.
After hours, Twitter can wait; so can email and work. I am now going to make a conscious effort to use any and all downtime to not only relax, but reflect, and hopefully put what I can into words to share with you.
If that’s even possible.
