The truth is....I'm intimidated. Intimidated by blogging it is....you might have wondered "where the heck has this girl gone?" or "what a slacker- she isn't keeping up with her blog" The truth of it is- I'm way intimidated by the entire blogging thing. Yes...it's true. My intimidation stems from the fact that every day I log on to my blogger site and notice all of the incredible post and things that other teachers are posting. Everyone has incredible ideas, wonderful products to buy off of TPT or TN and I sit here wondering "what do I have to contribute?"
The answer is simple....not much. I feel like because I'm so overwhelmed with switching grade levels and moving into a new house- my brain has run away. Gone are the incredible cute ideas I have or at least had- I'm intimidated because I don't have all of these cute graphics or clipart accounts to make super cutie pa-tootie stuff even though it's so me. I'm not sure my ideas are original enough or that anyone will find them as great as I do. I'm intimidated because I don't have interesting information to give you or new things to teach you about. This blogging thing is intimidating because there are so many amazing teacher blogs out there that why read one that doesn't do much for you?
It's a question I've been dealing with for the last month....I'm just me. I'm nerdy about sports which is what I'd probably show way too much in my blog, I rock a charlie brown, polka dots, and peanuts classroom...there isn't much interest in that from other teachers I'm sure, I cuss way more than I can show on here, I crack way more jokes that I should, I'm beyond sarcastic and often times way goofy. I'm a little different from the typical teacher- sports obsessed, beer drinking, trash talking, joke cracking, super boyish while being way girly kinda of different.
So I ask my bloggy friends- am I just weird or can blogging be intimidating? I feel like I'm alone. :/
