Blogging Ideas

Do you have a blog or wish to start a blog but are not sure what to write about? When blogging, I have this problem, too. What topics do I write about? Is it interesting to others?

Blogging is a great advocacy and reflection tool. For advocacy, it can give readers a better idea about the activities in the school library. As we see other educators blogging about ed-tech tools and instructional ideas, we can enter into a blogging conversation through the lens of a school librarian. I hope it gives others the idea to collaborate with their building school librarians. Blogging is a great reflection tool as well. When writing about an instructional activity, I see areas of improvement for the next time I do a similar lesson.

Many resources are available to gather ideas for blog articles. AJ Juliani’s blog provides a wealth of instructional ideas and resources. He is currently the director of Learning and Innovation for Centennial School District and a former English teacher. He is hosting a 30-day blogging challenge where participants set a goal for the number of posts a day/week/month. Participants will receive e-mails with reminders and prompts.

If you’re looking for additional challenges to get you blogging, check out the following resources are available from Edublogs and Richard Byrne to help gain some additional ideas:
