New year – new blog plan

January 3, 2018

Hi all. I’d imagine that many people have new year’s plans to blog more often/differently or something else and I’m well aware that it’s easy to make plans and not stick to them. I’ve clearly not been blogging that frequently recently and much less than in my early years:

All time blog views

I think this is probably to do with my change of approach. In the early days, I would send a quick email to Posterous (the host I used before WordPress) and it would be automatically uploaded, making it easy to put up quick thoughts after a lesson. More recently, I’ve been planning my posts more carefully and trying to think about creating more polished content. While I do like this approach, it does appear to mean that I just haven’t been posting anywhere near as much.

So, the plan is:

  • Post more frequent, short thoughts,
  • Focus more on things that happened in my lessons and/or lessons I’ve seen,
  • Record (in writing) some of the frankly, great conversations that happen amongst my maths team.

I think it’s time to go back to being a blog about a full time teacher with more day-to-day thoughts. At least, that’s the plan!

  1. Do you know John Mason’s Discipline of Noticing? It sounds like it might be useful for the kind of quick posts focusing on observations of things that happen in lessons. Maybe.

    • Hi Peter. No, I wasn’t aware of it but, having had a quick look, does look like it will be useful. Thank you.
