15, Maybe 16 Things To Worry About When You Start a Blog
*with thanks to Judith Viorst
Nobody could maybe read this thing,
or worse yet, they could read it and not having anything to say.
I might use incorrect grammar,
or split my infinitives.
Maybe my students will read it
and learn something too personal. Or not personal enough.
Or maybe I'll run out of ideas on day three.
(Birth? Bad Breath? Babies? Do people care?)
I could write and the computer could freeze
and lose all my work.
Or I could link it up in the wrong spot.
(Permalinks? Comments? Images?)
Stacey might kick me out of the challenge.
Or Holly might laugh too hard at my embarrassing story (or worse, not hard enough).
Betsy DeVos could read it and maybe tweet that I'm what's wrong with teaching.
Maybe this will be beautiful.
Maybe it will be exactly the thing I've been missing.
Maybe this blog, this community, this moment, will be the kick start.
Maybe, just maybe, I'll remember how to walk the walk.
