I hope everyone has a great holiday and a happy start to 2009…I will blog about my ‘experience’ getting home…I’ve realized that my dislike of that state up north goes further than I thought!

Blogging With a Purpose…

I was reading an article the other day about how teachers are using blogs in the classroom and giving the students a purpose to go along with their blog.  While this works well in the classroom, because I would hate to see the grade I would get for this blog…one that twists and turns as much as my moods.

Thinking back to my time in school, I think blogging before starting a project or being able to (stop) collaborate (and listen) on group projects would have been useful.  Especially if the teacher had made the effort to monitor the blogs and use that as apart of the grade which was assigned.  It really wouldn’t be any different than discussion boards for an online class, but would allow more freedom to work on things.

How could you use blogging in your line of work? Would it improve productivity or teamwork?

In the work that I do, this could be a very good tool for collaboration and team work, but I am not sure how many of the professionals across the state over the age of 60 would jump on this new technology.  They have been pretty good about email and using online video chat so they may be just fine…because blogging and email are so similar.  Could be a fun experiment to try out!

When I have started my different blogs (I usually give up because I don’t think I have anything interesting to say or I have a string of ‘Post more later’) I really haven’t had a purpose, other than to keep people updated on my life.  Isn’t that a purpose in and of its self? I think so….I have blogged about different topics, none of which are earth shattering, that is for sure.

What is the purpose of your blog or webpage? Do you have one that isn’t just for yourself?  Is it more for your own record or for friends? Or do you open it up for the world to be apart of.  Since it is online, most of our blogging is open for the world to see, however, the things we choose to write about may not mean a thing to anyone but a select few.

Plastic Grocery Bags…

Why do we need so many? I went to the store tonight, 14 bags later I’m out the door…never mind that three of the bags had two things in them (one bag had TWO boxes of granola bars, bag #2 had two bottles of juice and the last bag had toilet bowl cleaner and swiffer things in it)…There must be a contest somewhere that we who do not work at the grocery store or Wal-mart are missing out on!

“Who Can Get Their Customer Out The Door With The Most Bags…”

At least at this store they have a place to recycle the bags…but you have to come into the store to do that…and you’ll prolly walk out with more bags to bring back!! Maybe I should invest in my own grocery bags…but if you know me, bags are the last thing I need more of! 🙂
