Cool post. I posted one in response:

Someone likened blogging today to keeping a diary (agreed) and passing notes in class (ack!). What do you think?

Responding to the diary and passing notes...

I don't think that we are "passing notes". I see it as all of us having cycles and degrees of across the world collaboration meetings!

Jen-Dude, leaving for the beach on Friday! (That was my surfer talk)
I'll catch back up to you the following Sunday, okay?!?
Literacy Teacher- I wish that my passing notes in class was this professional and gratifying. I never kept a diary. I have never felt more validated as a professional than when I am blogging. I feel like the kid that needs enriching and is getting what they need in general education setting. If it is like passing notes and diary writing to them so be it, they are just jealous of the community that we have established. So HAHAHAHA!

Agreed!

BTW: I've gotta write a post about the crown molding, don't I?
