First Blog, First Post

Alright, here we go!  This is my first ever blog post.   Full disclosure, I'm writing this now because I have to.  I'm taking a class on blogs, wikis, and podcasts in the classroom.  This is one of my first assignments.

But honestly, I think creating my own math blog is something that I should do.  I have been following a number of great math teachers via blogs and Twitter for a few years now and I have gotten so much out of it. It's probably time that I contributed something to this "mathtwitterblogosphere" as well.  Problem is, I haven't felt like I have much to say.  At least nothing that will have a major impact on the global community of math teachers.  I'm more of a contemplative listener.  Sure, I've commented a couple of times on other people's blogs but there is a certain comfortable anonymity to that.  I haven't put myself out there yet with original thoughts of my own.  It's intimidating, especially considering the great ideas that are already out there.

So this is my first post.  I want to stick with it.  There won't be anyone reading this at first other than my course moderator and myself.  But I intend to keep at it after this course is over.  This will be my spot to reflect on what I'm doing, and if I have something great that is worth keeping and possibly sharing, that'll go here too.

So long for now...
