Where does the time go?

When I set out on the blogging journey, I feared one thing, a stagnant blog.  This fear was probably the one thing that kept me from blogging in the first place, that and knowing what to share with the greater blogging world that was out there.  There was always the time, but it was dedicating the time or choosing to write a blog first before something else that could take priority.  For years, everything else was a priority, the blog was just a thought.  But like an earlier post on this blog that I have started, I came to realize that sharing and reflecting on my practices as a teacher is important professionally.  I write tonight because it has been a couple weeks without a post and that fear of stagnation is real, that and I ask my students to blog 5 of 7 nights every week, reflecting on what they learned each day in school, discussing their genius projects, sharing what they have recently read or just sharing random thoughts they have that they are willing to put out to random readers from where ever they will come from and well I am not modelling what I am expecting from them.  Now, yes I could probably throw out a few reasons for my lack of contribution to my blog but I often find myself at 11:30 or 12 asking the simple question, “where does the time go?”

So, I ask those that may read this post, do you have dedicated time for blogging?  Or do you write when the thoughts come to mind?  Do you start a post and leave it in limbo as a draft? Or immediately publish what you write?
