My very first blog entry ever.
Some months ago, a friend told me, “You need to start a blog.” I did not think much about it. I thought, “I don’t have time. Besides, what will I write?”
Well. Talk about turn that statement on its head.
For the past couple of months I have been writing numerous education pieces, mostly to correct sleights of statistics performed by would-be educational reformers. I am at the point where I realize that I need some permanent, public place where I might record my writings.
I need a blog.
The decision to begin my blog was in part inspired by Gary Rubinstein. He writes on his blog as little or as often as a particular occasion warrants. I did not want to be trapped into having to post a certain number of pieces in a given timeline, and in my blog naivete, thought I must keep to a schedule. Gary’s entries are so informative, yet he keeps to no schedule. Thanks, Gary, for providing your unintentional yet valued example of blogger freedom to me.
So, here I am, making my as-of-yet unacknowledged entry to the blogger universe.
Happy to be on board.
