Challenge #3

Challenge #3 of 30 Days to a Better Blog: write the post that was on your mind when you decided to start a blog. Frankly, I don’t remember exactly what I had in mind when I started this. I went back to my very first post (from June 2005) to refresh my memory, but the only thing I found there were the features I was after: pingback and trackback, so that I could get automatic backlinks to referring articles (from my own posts as well as others’). My goal was to be part of a cross-linked multi-blog environment somewhat like a wiki.

One thing that I do clearly remember wanting to write about was a different approach to secondary education, (high school and possibly junior high/middle school, i.e. children aged 12- or 14-18). That would almost certainly end up being a whole series of articles. Although I have no qualifications to write policy on this topic, I’m encouraged by You (Almost) Never Have Nothing to Write About.

So… Challenge #3 isn’t complete, at least to my way of thinking. But I have a topic, and I’ve started a draft. I’m just not anywhere close to clicking the Publish button!

About Jim Vanderveen

I'm a bit of a Renaissance man, with far too many hobbies for my free time! But more important than any hobby is my family. My proudest accomplishment has been raising some great kids! And somehow convincing my wife to put up with me since 1988. ;)
