Good for sports, bad for surgeries, okay for a test, depending on your standards.
I'm very grateful to Anne for starting #MTBoS30, and the early adopters that greased the skids for me to do it to. I've blogged more this month than I did all last year!
The posts I'm the most glad I wrote:
- Queen of Quilts - just for the appreciation of Elizabeth, but I like that GeoGebra bit a lot as well.
- Not Subtracting - such an opportunity, to tagalong in a conversation with Dan Meyer, Marilyn Burns and the MTBoS.
- Commentary - for a reminder to myself to think this out. My colleague Clark Wells said this is what he was talking to me about, so there's hope for more local discussion.
- More Tessallations - for the chance to share student work and math I love. Several students have blogged about it since, and I love that kind of resonance.
My take away from the month is that I like blogging. Why don't I do it more? I think because I've forgotten the reason I started, which is the reason I ask my students to write and try to get my kids to write. It is good for you on the atomic level. The conversation, the curation, the community - those are excellent side dishes. Writing makes you think.
So do I make a commitment to more? 2/month, 1/week, every Monday? I don't know - I'm not very good at these commitments. After not having given up the MTBoS30 each morning, I know I should be ready to be Dread Pirate Roberts. But I'll settle for being a member of the Goon Squad.
