... or obsession, same difference. I've spent the past 2 days compulsively reading other people's blogs, starting with Blogs of Note, then checking links on those blogs, which usually yields good results. Hitting "next blog" button - unpredictable. (I found a few interesting ones in Chinese, my first language.) I've found good recipes, good Harry Potter discussions, creative people, stories that made me cry. I added links to this blog, even if the connection to teaching is tangential at best. Other blog compulsions - trying out different templates, trying to add photo to my profile (successful), trying to add photo to the header (not successful yet, have to re-size somehow).
How is this related to teaching? Hmm. How about this is what teachers do on summer vacation? Good enough.
