One of the things that convinced me to try blogging again was that I became involved with another blog, The Teacher Research Blog.
During my hiatus, I became the co-chair of New York State English Council's Standing Committee on Teacher Inquiry. Our goal is to promote teacher researchers among ELA teachers in New York State. We started the blog several weeks ago and I just finished posting my first post on Scientifically-Based Teacher Research and Teacher Research. The work made me realize how much I like blogging.
