Benefits of Being "Connected"

Being connected is a great thing. Especially tonight. It is probably a miracle I even have a computer in front of me right now and not one on the floor in a million pieces...but I digress.

The question we are to answer tonight is, "Are you connected?"

The answer is, "I'm working on it."

As a self-proclaimed private person, I find it difficult to put myself out there on blogland. As my classmate says, "You don't have to put your whole life out there." Good point. A second article we read tonight discusses ways to improve our usage of social networking cites. The idea of mixing personal and professional makes a lot of sense. When I search blogs, I look for ideas to inspire creativity. This includes things at home and for my students. It is all about what we decide to share. I would like to have the kind of blog where people go to be inspired or to jump start ideas. If I don't want people to know what I am having for dinner, I won't tell people what I am having for dinner.

P.S. Spaghetti


  1. As I come back and re-read this post, one thing that came to me, and you bring it up a bit here, is you can definitely keep your "online life" and personal life separate. Easy? Nope, especially when what you do is something that your passionate about, the two worlds easily blend. But I appreciate you working on putting yourself out there.
    I'm excited to be grilling brats tonight, in case you cared :)

  2. It's time to come out of the proverbial technology closet and embrace it. I'm doing it so I'm forcing you to do it as well. ;)
