I started this blog several years ago in the fall of 2010. It was all new for me and my junior high students. We gradually learned to blog, thanks to the Kick Start Your Blogging Challenge from Edublogs and the biannual Student Blogging Challenges. It was great and we made lots of connections.
When I came to Bahrain, I blogged less and less. I’m not sure why. Is blogging losing popularity? Am I too busy? Has my blog become too politicized instead of education-based? Did I move too far away from my connections, who are mostly in the US and Canada? I don’t know why.
Anyway, when I saw Simon Justner‘s tweet about a January challenge to get my blog going again, I paid attention:
Have you dabbled with blogging in the past but struggled to maintain momentum? You're not alone!
We're here to help with a new 28 DAY CHALLENGE for educators to get you off to a great start in 2019. 🎉

I think I’ll give it a try. I do want to sow more seeds of kindness, love, learning, and creation in 2019, so blogging can be a place to share about what is going on in my life.
Bite-sized is good. I can do it, and I hope some of my friends–old and ones I’ve yet to meet–will join in as well.
