As educators there seems to be a real push towards this thing called “blogging.” The process of blogging seems like a daunting task to add on top of the busy life of a college professor. Just figuring out how a blog should fit into my online presence has questioning what value it will add to the online space. Will anyone ever read this blog?
This is not my first attempt at blogging. Last time I tried a blog it failed. It failed because I was unclear on it’s purpose. I basically used my blog as an alternate format to share my YouTube videos. Video transcripts do not make good blogs.
This time around I have a clearer idea of what I want to try including on a blog or maybe vlog. My blog will be a place to share insights. That is why I called it insights.nursekillam.com
It is a place for showcasing reflective practice. I may share questions that I have, challenges I have faced or my on current issues. Sometimes I may express opinions or frustrations. Ideally others will find the content useful in some way and start engaging as a community. I welcome critique and discussion.
I am sure that this blog will evolve with time – as should any project that is grounded in constant evaluation and reflection.
Please leave a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts on if something like this is valuable. Should I blog? Should I vlog instead? After all, “NurseKillam” is primarily a YouTuber 😉
