8 Years of Blogging

I missed my anniversary by a few days, but I’ve now been blogging for 8 years. My first post on 12/26/06 explained that I was creating a graduate course on social media for teachers and felt I should “practice what I preach.” Although that course has been updated by others in the past few years, Building Online Collaborative Environments is still being taught several times a year.
