I think blogging can be slightly addictive and change your perspective in weird ways. I felt like I hadn't blogged in an age--only to see the last post was from just before Thanksgiving--only two weeks ago. Another thing I've noticed is how I think in terms of 'blogability.' I have a somewhat focused blog here. I tend to discuss mostly my home education and occasionally politics (I used to do a lot more politics, but now that I am familiar with other great blogs that say the same thing I generally would in a more effective and grammatically correct way, the need has vanished).
I often come across an article, or think of an idea and decide whether the idea, or my view of it, would be worthwhile to post here. Sometimes I post things here for myself (like a virtual memory base or book-marking system). I am surprised at how many times I actually search my own blog because I wanted to recover a link. Mostly I try to post ideas about education that I feel would be very beneficial to anyone interested in pedagogy. I try to remember who might be reading the blog and take that into account. No embarrassing stories about friends for instance.
You may notice that I haven't posted any science or girls' club updates either. That is because I doubted their appeal. If anyone is interested in knowing about either, just go ahead and leave a comment.
And Flurpee's birthday party is finally over. Build-a-Bear parties are fun for the kids, but let me just state for the record that doing anything at the mall in the month of December is very tricky business. Were it not for the efforts of a couple of very sweet and helpful parents, it would not have been a nice as it turned out! Wrangling tables in the food court is not easy during the Christmas season. I am glad it worked out. There was a woman there three hours before her child's party was even scheduled to begin trying to collect tables. I think that was a bit excessive, but she probably didn't panic at the sheer number of snackers and the clear lack of open tables. Whew! Glad that's over!
