who knew?

26 Apr

i never knew that janice d. took her kids on field trips, or janice b. had such an influential teacher. nor did i realize that cheryl likes to talk over the chatter at a coffee house, that rebecca was such a day of poetry enthusiast, or sheneva had some interesting opinions on the pay for grades ideas. karen, well i just feel like we’re family now after all that i’ve learned about her 🙂 I wasn’t aware the yolanda used photobucket, heather likes to out-tech her daughter, denise is a lencioni fan or that jeri had debates over dinner as a child…probably still does as an adult! I would have never guessed that laura was so interested in guest speakers and team dysfunction or corina had her picture taken with marzano. and i would had NEVER known any of this information, in addition to loads of others if i didn’t read their blog. i would have missed out on the thoughts that i generated by reading them and the conversations i’ve had regarding them. quite simply, if you’re choosing not be part of the c&i professional blogging community, you’re missing out…and so are we.

*note: i lied about not knowing denise was a lecioni fan, i knew that, but i think you get my point.

    The blogs are great and I enjoy reading each person’s entry. I love how some of us can Twitter, and ning. I found a great web site that describes all the Web 2.0 offerings.

    Dan-you are so on point. I love all of this. Some of the things I now know about the wonderful people who share so much of my daily life would not be possible except for blogging. In case there are still some naysayer who might say, I’m wrong–think about it. We just don’t move in the type of conversational circles where we have time to entertain the wide variety of topics that have been revealed through our blogging. We get snippets here and there but there is such value in all of these fabulous connections. Wonderful, glorious, links that bind us together. It’s hard to believe we haven’t done this forever.
