I feel the need to acknowledge the elephant in the room....
the fact that I haven't been blogging.
Not even a tiny bit.
I know, I know...I'm not supposed to apologize to YOU when I don't use MY blog, but it's really more of an apology to myself.
I'm truly sorry I haven't written for so long. It's not because I haven't had anything to share. It's certainly not for lack of activity in my library.
It's more of that feeling of being absolutely and completely overwhelmed and doing all you can to get through the end of the school year. Then reaching the end of the year, breathing a huge sigh of relief, and realizing that I may have dropped a few things along the way in my quest to survive. My blog seems to be the main thing that fell by the wayside. So much for active reflection!
And now...it's summer break. So many cool things happened during the last few months of school, but I never really shared them. Sure, I tweeted snippets but 140 characters only go so far.
Now, before my summer picks up with conferences, traveling, and preparing for new job responsibilities, it's time to catch up here and share. Maybe I'll do a highlight post from the past few months or perhaps I'll feel so inspired I'll share a few feature posts from the past few months (my draft folder is full!). There's much to look forward to this summer: ISTE 2014, Summer Throwdown Year 3, collaborations with amazing teacher-librarians, professional development... but I'm making a commitment to get back here -- to my space -- and clear the cobwebs.
Stay tuned. :)
