Why Blog?

I've always liked to write, and I have quite a few opinions, so blogging seems like a natural fit for me, but I've never taken it up, in part because I thought it would take too much time. Why am I here now?

A class assignment. I'm taking a class called "Development of Information Literacy Skills". I've been teaching information literacy for almost nine years, now, but I've gone back to school to get a teaching license, and this is a required course.

The assignment?
"Create an online presence that highlights the elements of your information literacy program. Make sure to include policies and procedures related to intellectual freedom, access to information, equity and accountability, and other area addressed throughout the course. (30 points)"

So, here I am. I'm not sure a blog is the ideal choice for the project, but I already had set up this blog, just never had the time to post to it, so I'm going to use it. . . and see what happens.

Wow, you've done a lot more with your blog function-wise than I ever did! I just couldn't focus on all that technology learnin' stuff. Anyway, welcome to the internet!
