Blogging Buddies

PLN

My grand intentions for blogging consistently as an avenue for reflection and to share and connect with others seem to fall short year after year. I struggle to make blogging part of my creative habits.

When I caught a tweet about ISTE’s Ed Tech Coaches PLN Blogging Buddies program, I jumped on the opportunity to participate. The Blogging Buddies program encourages Ed Tech coaches to write blog posts, read one another’s blog posts, and leave feedback regularly.

I hope participating in Blogging Buddies will help me become more consistent about utilizing blogging as a platform for reflection and also connect and gain insight from other brilliant educators in Ed Tech Coach roles. I would also especially like to document and reflect some of the initiatives, lessons and experiences that I tried this school year so that I can think a little deeper about what to focus on during the new school year.

I am looking forward to connecting with my new Blogging Buddies and hope you are too! Check them out below:

  1. Lauren, so glad that you have decided to join us for Blogging Buddies! We can all use a little accountability sometimes. Looking forward to learning with you! (P.S. love your logo… very clever!)

    1. Thanks Katie! I found Blogging Buddies through your Twitter posts and am looking forward to the opportunity to share and connect. And it took me a while to come up with something just right for a logo- so thanks for the compliment!

  2. Lauren – I’m looking forward to Blogging Buddies too. My inspiration to become a better blogger came when I was accepted to be an emerging Edublogger for ISTE17. I’ve connected with new educators and through that discovered ISTE’s Blogging Buddies. Already, the process has been wonderful. I’ve read four amazing blogs that I never would have seen before that gave me a peek into the Summer SPARK conference, 2nd graders using design thinking and an awesome summer bucket list. I’m looking forward to learning and growing with you!

    1. Thanks Stacy! That’s exciting news about blogging for ISTE and probably a great motivator for developing a blogging habit as well. I took quick peeks at all of our buddy blogs but haven’t been able to deep dive into anyone’s posts yet. Looking forward to getting to know everyone a little better soon through their posts!

  3. I am really looking forward to blogging with all of you! I need to get back on a schedule 🙂 I think this is such a great idea! I am so excited to learn and expand my knowledge.
