What to write? Tonight, I have no idea. But, it is the 4th day of my #nerdlution challenge. I have challenged myself to write something on my blog for 50 straight days.
I was talking to my friend on the telephone about this challenge. I told her I didn’t have anything to write about tonight. “I am having a writer’s block,” I explained. I went on to tell her about the things I have posted so far and how it has helped me get in contact with people I didn’t know before. She told me I should write about that.
So, here I am. Through my blog, I have communicated with people I have never met. When I first started this blog, I thought I was only writing it for family, friends, and myself. However, I have learned that I am speaking to many more people outside of my immediate circle. I don’t know why this never dawned on me. In any case, two days ago I wrote about an assembly at my school given by the Dairy Council of California. Someone from the council asked if they could use my story for their website or their newsletter. I asked how she knew of my blog (I have never met the woman.). She said she does a media search. My blog came up, and she commented. That was amazing.
Last night, I blogged about my former students coming to visit me after school. I heard from Kevin Hodgson (@dogtrax), and he commented on my story. You can also visit his blog by clicking here. He is also participating in the #nerdlution challenge. He wants to comment to different blogs each day. I just happened to be his 4th comment! I love how this challenge is bringing people together.
And with that, I will officially end my #nerdlution challenge for today. Day 4. . . Done!
