The Blogging Retrospective #writeeveryday

My Post (1) (1)

Blogging might be the ultimate retrospective tool.  Consider the definition of retrospective:

In particular the noun version appeals to my senses around how I consider blogging.  I’ve been blogging off and on for years and now I have this amazing collection to look back on and view my own development and work over time.  It’s the ultimate reflection tool and something I’m grateful for. Educators spend a profound amount of time working on their craft, in classrooms, in schools…I want to have some memories from all that time and energy…something to look back on and learn from.  I once talked to a retiring teacher who didn’t have one single picture from her teaching career.  She shared that she wished she had kept a journal along the way and that it was one of her biggest regrets.

For me the blog is like looking through an old photo album and seeing where I’ve been and how far I’ve come and how much further I want to go.  It’s become an invaluable practice in so many ways.

It’s my own scrapbook, portfolio, road map, journal, biography, and open door.
