Well today isn't a regularly scheduled bloging day, but I have a milestone I want to celebrate--this is my 100th blog posting! I have only been working on this blog for a few months and I've already reached 100 postings.
I enjoy this blog--it gives me a creative outlet to write and it's showing me what it's like to be a "professional" writer. I put that in quotes because while becoming a writer is my goal and dream, I have no illusions this blog is professional. When I have a bogging spot on School Library Journal or another educational publication, then I'll call it professional!
I am learning some important writer's tools. It forces me to write on a schedule instead of when I want. And it's helping me to learn to structure a topic --in this case, literacy education-- rather than posting whatever strikes my fancy. (Okay, so the Year in Legos wasn't really on topic, but it was so darned cute!!!)
And I hope in some way I've been able to share with some in the literacy community--teacher-librarians, teachers or other educational professionals. If you've read this far, thank you for your support and interest.
Here's to the next 100, and the next and the next.....
