Having created a blog in Blogger and using it for several years, I was under the mistaken impression that using WordPress would be a similar project. I was so wrong! I have struggled a bit with finding the things that I needed to include and posting links, rearranging my tabs, and a myriad of other things. However, tonight I can say I am feeling much more confident about my ability to organize my content and present the products that I would like in a way that makes sense!
Learning new things by trial and error has always been my preferred method and this was definitely an example of that. It keeps my very humble to feel the frustration and victory of learning something new. Reminding me that I need to be patient with my own students who sometimes struggle with things that are new for them. This week, we have been practicing navigating to our classroom blog and they have been feeling these same types of feelings. I feel like I should share this experience with them and talk about how we all have to persevere! The victory is always worth it.
