Happy Birthday to my Blog!

logo maker - http://www.sparklee.com

I began this blog, Integrating Technology in the Primary Classroom on 14th March 2009.

I started the blog with the initial goal of sharing ideas and resources. The purpose of this blog has changed from resource sharing to reflection, advice and discussion of issues surrounding blogging, global collaboration and technology integration.

Two years on, I still love blogging as much as ever. I think it is a great way to organise  and explore your thoughts, and get feedback from others.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of my blog readers for your support!

Hopefully my blog will have many more milestones!

Last year I polled my readers on what sort of posts they’d like to see more of. I thought it would be an opportune time to run a poll again. Please tick all that apply.

    Maintaining such a successful blog over two years is a great achievement, so you deserve the high praise!

    Working alongside you every day, I know how hard you work and all of your blogging is done in your own time at home. But I also know how much you love it and that you wouldn’t have it any other way!

    I am so glad you introduced me to the world of blogging, our teaching is so much better for it! 🙂

      @ Kelly,

      Thanks! As we both know, maintaining the blog is much more difficult than starting it, however we have realised the benefits of blogging, personally and for our students. It is very worth it.

      It’s rewarding to hear that I’ve been able to help other teachers with their own technology journeys and that, combined with the benefits of self-relection, encourages me to continue!

  8. Dear Mrs Morris,

    A very BIG happy birthday. Wow what an awesome achievement to you too the time the effort which you put into your blogs is just outstanding. You are an great example of what can be achieved when you believe in something worth wild. It is a real credit to you and to think you do this while working full time too. I, do agree with Michelle I am in awe too.

    Just think how many doors you have opened to this wonderful concept of blogging.
    I can only see this concept of blogging getting much larger with more people joining the blogging train.
    Hoping I will be with you for your nexted and many more blogging birthdays. 🙂
    I truly thank you on so many levels.

      @ AA,

      Thanks so much for your support! I’m so glad there are parents out there who love to embrace new technologies as much as you do! I really appreciate the way you help to spread the word too.

      It’s nice to know that I’ve been able to help all sorts of people get on board the blogging train (I love that term! :lol:)

      What a great way to celebrate a blogging birthday with a public holiday!

      See you soon,

  9. Dear Kathleen,

    I don’t know how you do it, but I’m glad you do!

    One of the things I love about this blog is that you bring up hot topics that need discussion. You are always straight forward in your presentation and welcome a variety of voices! I appreciate all of your effort!

    Happy, Happy Birthday!
