I didn't think this post merited a new name. I'm just writing again to give you all an update. I have had 32 visits to my site so far since I hit "publish". That was a few hours ago. Now, who are those 32 visitors? Here's my theory: not real people. No one (except me) left a comment! I did sign up for AdSense. I got a rejection email from them. They said I didn't have enough content yet. I totally agree. So, a note to anyone else out there starting a blog--don't bother putting AdSense on your site until you have content! Lesson learned. So, now back to my 32 visitors. Perhaps a few were me (but I couldn't have been back more than 3 times, for real!). That means about 25 or more were either the AdSense people searching around for content OR they were real live people! I'm betting on the former. If you are out there and reading this, please do leave a comment. It will help me solve the mystery of whether my 32 visitors are real live breathing human beings or not.
So, is your first post supposed to be on why you decided to blog? Well, like many teachers, I have stories to tell. Stories, advice to give, and moments to share with someone. Sometimes friends, husbands, and parents are just not as excited about your teaching story as another teacher would be. You realize this when they yawn as you are talking to them. So, blogging could perhaps be the audience I'm seeking! Now, how is it that people get others to read their blogs? Haha, I guess I'll have to figure that one out. It is quite possible that no one will ever read this post. I've accepted that thought before I began. But I'm hoping someone is here...if you are out there, anyone, leave a comment. But a nice one please, so many people are kind of mean in the online world.
Oh, one random thought before I end this post. So, I think I know how we can end the mis-proununciation of the word BLOG. A history lesson first...BLOG is short for WEB LOG or WEBLOG. A log on the web. Like a diary of sorts. Anyhow, some people pronouce the word blog (which rhymes with log) as if it were blag (which rhymes with blah). To end this problem, we should write BLOG with an apostrophe in front of it. It should really look like this: 'BLOG. The change is small, but do you see it in there? The little ' which represents the missing w and e? This might help the world pronounce the word correctly!
