I should pay more attention to my blogs. The other day I earned a badge for having accumulated ten followers on another of them. It feels strange. The notification was sitting there this evening (as it no doubt has been since the 28th when the 10th person decided to “follow”) and until this moment I was completely unaware. In part, the strange feeling comes because just this evening I responded to a comment that was nearly a year old and don’t post on any of my nine blogs with any regularity, that is except perhaps for 750words.com which is more of a private journal than a blog. Delinquent as all this is I hardly deserve followers. Such a track record is desperately far from walking all the talk bandied about in years of classroom encounters. I write or blog because I breathe. I’m glad doing so makes a difference for someones else.
