Wow, time flies. As we approach December I look back on November as a whirlwind: starting with the election, I had my grades due in on Nov 9th and had a lot of catching up to do since so much of October was focused on Spain. Then my birthday came and I took the weekend to really devote to my family, friends, and fiancee (and playing the new "Black Ops" for PS3) and then before you know it, its Thanksgiving.
Over the years I've learned the importance of consistency. Nevertheless, consistency is often seen, particularly in the blogosphere (especially post-Twitter) as posting/writing/producing/creating according to a schedule that is more hourly/daily as opposed to weekly/monthly. As I maintain a commitment to blogging here about education my motivations, as well as my inclinations, remain aligned to my original purpose as outlined 1 year and 2 days ago, when I first launched this blog.
As a professional, I have an obligation to manage my time, tasks, and energy well. As a crusader for educational reform and advancement, I have the responsibility to devote myself to this mission, and blogging is a small part of my strategy.
At the one year mark, I am committing to myself and my fledging readership that this blog will continue for perpetuity, and that consistency in writing will be considered anytime that I can produce a quality reflection, analysis or news alert that will advance the interest of educational efficacy, and I will accomplish this a minimum of once a month.
To another year, growth and development.
PS. I am working on a piece on unions that I plan to post very soon. :)
