The Blog Revolution On Hold

For reasons beyond my control, my blogging time will be extraordinarily limited this week (lots of concerts and exhaustion has begun to catch up on me). For these reasons, I will be putting the Blog Revolution Project on hold for this week. It will presumably resume again on Monday the 19th. Thanks for bearing with me.

While you are waiting, I invite you to check out these outstanding blogs that have linked to my articles recently:

I’ve also seen some recent concern expressed about my intentions with my blog. They are definite points that I will need to consider. I do appreciate both IMC Guy and Angela Meiers for pointing them out. I also understand that I can’t aim to please everyone with my blog. For this reason, I am intensely interested to hear what some others of you think about these topics:

  • Do I brag about my subscribers/publicize my RSS feed TOO MUCH?
  • Do my requests for more subscribers detract from the overall message of my blog?
  • Which topics do you least enjoy when I write about them on here?
  • What do you see as the primary audience for So You Want To Teach?

About Joel Wagner 522 Articles
Joel Wagner (@sywtt) began teaching band in 2002. Though he had a lot of information, his classes were out of control. He found himself tired, frustrated, disrespected by students, lonely, and on the brink of quitting. He had had enough. He resigned from his school district right before spring break of his second year and made it his personal mission to learn to be a great teacher. So You Want To Teach? is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.

  1. Thanks for the link love, Joel! (I added that exclamation point in honor of you.) Every little bit helps. Oh, and if people are worried that you’re bragging then they’re just jealous. It’s not like anyone around here has Phyrangula-like numbers. Sheesh.

  2. Joel,
    I have huge respect and admiration for your efforts and message. One of your very best qualities is your transparency. I love it when you talk about teaching and education. Your passion comes through. As teachers and bloggers, reflections like this make us better and stronger. I learn everyday from my readers and other bloggers. We are smarter together.

  3. Trying to improve our blogging efforts is always a great idea. I’m looking for ways to get better and your tips are good ones. When I first read about your Blog Revolution, one comment really stuck out to me.

    You said:
    Quite simply, I am going to market this project quite a bit and try to bring in as much traffic as possible.

    That’s the part that bothered me. Drumming up traffic isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I don’t think “marketing up” a blog that raised an eyebrow.

    Good luck with the project, I’ll be following along and certainly learning as we go!
