I began this blog to share my wonderful experience of a month (April 2014) in Barcelona, and I also hoped to get comfortable blogging. And the blog keeps alive my intention to return to Barcelona as soon as I can. In addition to my travel blog, I’d like to have a second blog that is more reflective and represents other interests: writing, teaching, drawing, my love for houses, reading.
Then I committed to having a class that I will be teaching this fall include a blogging assignment. The course is a first-year seminar on journal keeping at a small public college in Vermont where I am an adjunct professor. So it behooves me to get a handle on my own blogging process before I attempt to convince my students they can enjoy this assignment. (Typically my students are way ahead of me on the technology front, so I do hope not to embarrass myself.)
I am a fan of several blogs and believe in the value of blogging on many levels. I hope that by the end of these three weeks, posting blogs will be easier and I’ll be taking better advantage of the tools Word Press makes available. Here goes!
