Why Can't I Blog?

I want to blog, trust me I do. I did blog a few posts but I just can't seem to keep doing it. I don't know why I can't seem to bring myself to write and publish blog posts. I am a huge advocate of students blogging in the classroom. In fact, my students blog at least three times a week. I just can't bring myself to do it. I've been trying to figure out what is holding me back since I have thoughts to share. Is it a fear of people thinking my thoughts are crazy? Is that I know I am not the greatest writer (grammar and structure wise)? Is it a fear that because I am not a great writer people will be put off by my blog or make fun of it?  Is it a fear that nobody will read it?

After pondering about it for a long time, I've started to realize that it is a fear of failure holding me back. As a classroom teacher, I try and make sure my students try new things and aren't afraid of these experiences but, yet my fear of failure is holding me back from something that I know I can do. I need to remove my fear barrier and share my thoughts through my blog. I am going to need some help from you though. Can you please help me out by giving me some tips or thoughts? Go easy on me and don't laugh. Thank you.

  1. I write when I can't not write. I do find that the more I write the more I discover about what I believe and what I am thinking. I would suggest you write about what you are doing in class and why you are doing it. Ultimately you need to write for yourself first anyway :)
