I have been thinking about online privacy, and how I feel about it more these last few weeks than I ever have. In fact, I never really thought about it at all. I’ve come to realize that my life is not as private as I once thought. Anyone can search for you. Anyone can write something about you or post a picture of you and really there is no control for that. I do consider myself a private person. I do not like to be the center of attention, preferring to stay in the background. But as far as my feelings on online privacy go, I am not yet sure how I feel. Part of me is concerned and part of me is too busy to make a fuss.

This is why the whole idea of blogging has been so strange to me. Why would anyone care what I have to say? Why do I need to put it out there? I am beginning to get it though. When I share something happening in my classroom it may give someone else an idea. I have certainly gotten a lot of ideas this way recently. I guess I just have to not question whether or not someone will gain value from what I am doing, but just put it out there because I’ve gained something by reflecting.
