Blogging is forever

I was giving a presentation on blogs at TA/TM day, and one of the participants said that they were hesitant about using blogs in education since there is a fear that a blog posting is forever. And I agreed, but that was wrong.

Blogs are not forever. You can edit posts, you can delete entire blogs when you are done with them. And besides, who says I can’t change my mind, get smarter (or dumber) and switch my allegiances. If you are not allowed to say something different today, then is there any point in learning anything new?

So I’m resolved to worry less about making the perfect posting, and write more about what’s going through my head.
