weekend (sometimes), and late at night (sometimes). Basically, I blog when I have a moment to sit still and it happens, because I have made it a priority. (An alternative explanation is that I have found a way to make days have more than 24 hours.)
The answer to the second question is I blog because it has given me a more formal way to reflect on my teaching. Scribbled notes in the margins of my planning book will still be a thing, and I will never want to give up on the conversations about teaching with my colleagues. But blogging is different. Because of my blog, I often think ahead about what I am teaching and what I might include in my blog. My blogging has led me to try new things and publicly share my successes and failures. Ultimately, I blog because it makes me a better teacher. Here's to 85 days more!!!
