Good morning, friends! I really enjoyed two blog posts I read recently, connected by links shared here. I thought you might enjoy them, too.
Anna writes about the challenges of poverty in this link and proposes a method to combat its harmful effects. I work with adult students at a two-year technical college, and I see the effects of bad (read: administered in poverty) schools on students with incredible potential all the time. How can we fix this??? See what you think about Anna’s proposal. I find it compelling. (But, Anna, I am having trouble following your blog; any advice will be welcome!)
Shirobanryu’s post takes us to Antarctica and into his woven wordplay. Take a little journey on this post and see why he titles it, “Antarctic Ice. Shackled. Not stirred.”
What are YOU writing? Please share links!
I noticed a comment on one of these blogs that said just this: Please visit my blog.
The blogger replied, very graciously, Good luck with your blog! I thought that was a balanced and appropriate reply.
It made me think of doing the unit on comments in Blogging 101 way back in the day. The instructors impressed on us that comments should show the writer that you’ve read and thought about their blogs. I really took that to heart, and lo and behold, I made some really fast friends in the blogosphere through conversations that developed. But when people just post, Please visit my blog, I’m pretty sure they didn’t read mine. That makes me think we probably won’t have much to talk about.
Have you run into this? What do you think?
The sun is shining in Ohio. I hope you’re having a great day, too.
