For a variety of reasons, I have wanted to begin blogging for years! I find blogs so useful when looking up cooking recipes, zero waste alternatives, science classrooms activities, and quilting tips. Most of my questions can be answered through blogging posts attached to Pinterest or linked in Instagram.
I suppose I never started blogging, because I assumed that my blog should be about one specific topic. For example, if I were to search for a quilting blog, I wouldn’t be interested in also reading about that person’s parenting advice or gardening tips. I now realize that when looking at a blog, rarely am I looking at more than one page on the site. My search leads me to exactly what I’m looking for, and then I don’t return to that site unless my next search leads me to the same place.
On more than one occasion, I’ve done something “Pinterest-worthy,” and I really want to post more than just an image online to help inspire others, just as that community has inspired me more times than I can count. Blogging has never made it’s way to the top of my priority list in the past, but today’s the day! I’m thankful that my EC&I 831 is pushing me out of my comfort zone and into this blogging world. One of my goals this year was to make my learning public and this is a step in that direction.
This is my first time working with WordPress, so my site will likely change formats continuously until I get the hang of it. I hope I continue with this site even after my class, but even if I don’t, I’m glad I’m giving it a try!
