Two years into this blogging business and I know at least one thing...blogging during the school year is tough. Really tough.
I take pictures of my student's work and say to myself, "If I blog about this tonight, I can get something up for _____ (insert holiday/season/month/etc.)" And.... two weeks later...ooops! Nothing is posted. The moment has passed. The holiday is over. So I say to myself, "Don't worry, Amanda. Just post about it next year."
And then, guess what? The next _____ (insert holiday/season/month/etc.) arrives, and I miss that one too.
So, I decided to start a new Sunday Feature on my blog.
Here is my plan. On Sundays, I will post seasonal ideas that I never got up during the year. It will be a collection of my favorite projects, writing assignments, and more.
Now, the next question is...do y'all want to join in? Linky?
Does this happen to you too? Do you frequently miss blogging dates and deadlines but have great October ideas to share in June? Maybe you have a great leprechaun activity but had a broken computer for the entire month of March? Perhaps a super stealth ninja squirrel hijacked your computer during November, leaving you unable to post about your favorite Turkey Day traditions? Or the elves borrowed your computer during December, but you have the best writing assignment to share?
Whatever it is... let's share now. Let's just do it!! What do you think? Summer is the best time to collect ideas, pin for later, and imagine all the wonderful possibilities that come with a fresh year.
So, whatcha think? Start June 30th? Linky or no? I'll post either way, but I thought others might want to join the fun and share too. Feedback please.
Enjoy your Sunday. And, don't forget to check out Fiction Friday from this week. So many great books!
Guess what? No school tomorrow! Yahoooo!
