No Other Choice Now

I've got no other choice now!

I've spent the last few mornings reworking my Blogger site I haven't touched in years. I've played with the layout, transferred content from the Weebly page. While I'm sure I could spend many more hours tweaking and adjusting, I've pretty much hit the point where I must do something that people may want to visit.
I've read dozens of articles and posts as well as great books by Michael Hyatt and Bernadette Jiwa regarding blogging, branding, etc. and 100% preach that you have to post content worth reading.  That is a pretty scary prospect for me as I am apt to downplay the value of my thoughts, knowledge and expertise. But, I'm going to fight through that fear and post/share things I'm interested in and passionate about (see graphic)and hope you'll join me along the way!

So here's is post #1!

As stated in my intro, "I'll focus on topics of (in no particular order) school culture, vision, branding, instructional leadership and focus, social media, community and maybe a few others as they are appropriate and applicable." I believe that these areas are paramount in building a school/district that has a clear sense of identity and experience in which the community clamors to positively engage.  Identity is the main idea I want to explore and engage with you! 

So here's to quality content worth sharing!




  1. I know what you mean about the attitudes towards blogging. Most times I wonder if writing my thoughts/reflections is really going to add anything of value to this community known as the internet...do I have anything to say that hasn't been said before? I think those are healthy questions though and perhaps more people should ask themselves that before posting on the net.

    I do love reading what success others are having in the classroom, as well as the challenges and failures b/c it helps me know I'm not alone in that.

  2. Great thoughts Thom! Add in the size and depth of everything out their on the internet, it can make those thoughts and ideas seem even more insignificant, but they are not! Our experiences and input is valuable and there is an audience for it! #txed, as well as the other chats are a great example! Glad you jumped in last night and here as well!
