So, this is really a pre-cursor to a post I am planning for next week, but I thought I’d share it in case anyone else is interested in doing this as well. Sometimes, I find myself anti-goals and anti-evaluation because it can be depressing or discouraging. But, at the same time, goals and evaluation can be greatly encouraging. And, as an educator goals and evaluation are critical to what I do every day. Without them, there is no context by which to judge success in the activities or tasks that I am doing.
So, that being said, next week I intend to do some blog evaluation and goal-setting. More questions may come up before I post my final one, but here are the questions that I have already thought about asking myself. Maybe you’d be interested in doing the same and leaving a comment or link so I can see yours!
How would I describe my blog from this last year?
What was my favorite thing from this last year?
What did I feel was not effective, or what did I not like?
How do I want people to categorize my blog?
What do I want to do the same next year that I did last year?
What do I want to do differently next year?
By the end of 2012 what do I want to have accomplished with my writing?
Just some thoughts. I’m sure that yours will change as you think and write for yourself, and mine will probably change a little too. But, just an encouragement to make your blogging meaningful!
Okay, have a great night!
