It's been a Zillion Internet Years Since I Posted Last!

It's been a very busy year at school. I have talked with several colleagues and we all agree that this year seems to be more hectic than ever. It seems that my schedule doesn't allow for any disruptions. If one or more occur than my whole day is in chaos. I haven't had the time to read my blogs and write. Does anyone else feel this way?

As I prepare for my presentation at NYSCATE this year I am reminded to follow some of my own advice. One of the pieces of advice I will be presenting is to keep your blog roll down to a manageable number. Mine has over 40 blogs in it. Now I'm sure that is small compared to some.

So what did I do about it? I found myself with only enough time to actually keep up with 4 or 5 of the blogs. Then, along came Flock. A new web browser that bills itself as a social web browser. I really like Flock. It has a feed reader built in. I now have only 4 or 5 blogs in Flock that I read. The others are in Bloglines and I get to them when I have time.

I hope to keep this blog more up to date. You can also listen to my podcast over at Podcasternews. It's called Hallpass and I discuss technology tools that can be used in the classroom.

Well, got to go and discover what's new out there. Maybe I'll bump into you!
