Blogging helps me reflect, process, and focus, which provides clarity. I think in brainstorms, adding ideas and eliminating others as I rule them out. The process I go through to write a post helps me decipher ideas and connect new meaning, leaving me with a sense of calmness and closure.
Expected blogging benefits
It's expected to be an organized place to keep notes on my learning. Saving time is another expectation because I spend much of my time answering emails about tech integration. So, it helps to post it on my blog.
Unexpected blogging benefits
I didn't realize the connections that evolve from blogging. Until nine months ago, the only blog I followed was my best friend's. The change happened when I stumbled upon a Tweet about the Edublogs Teacher Challenge, which pretty much opened Pandora's box in such a great way.
Connected and inspired
I thrive when I'm having fun learning, creating things, connecting, and making a difference in the lives of students and teachers. My batteries recharge when I'm around others who have the same passion.
Blogging connects me with innovative and passionate educators. I go to their blogs over and over because of the inspiration they give me. They recharge my batteries.
The #Rockstar Meme

Those who inspire me the most through blogging are the #Rockstars that I'm passing the meme baton to:
Miguel Guhlin, is about how blogging rocks your world. The typical meme expectations are to link back and comment on the originator's post, and pass the meme baton to five others.
I believe memes are for recognizing others as inspiration, and it's not actually expected they write a post.
If you want to be inspired, I highly recommend the five bloggers I named because they are #Rockstars!
