Tonight was the first meeting of our Des Moines blogging for business class at Roosevelt High School. What a fantastic group! I'd like to say a special thank you to the class for welcoming me and having fun with me as we dispelled blogging myths, touched on some "blogging basics", and did some "live blogging" with conversations, comments, and "linkages" to resources using our voices vs. our computers. It was a real hoot.
Since this is my first time teaching the class...every one is a learning experience. I couldn't have had a better "first class" so thanks a million. I shared my very first post with the class too. That one always elicits a few chuckles...and jerks at my heart strings.
We left off tonight discussing RSS feeds and WISHING the wifi worked in the building. No sweat. The team has a homework assignment to leverage a feed reader to subscribe to some feeds (mine are required reading!).
I can't wait til next week and possibly our first guest blogger/speaker. I better tighten up my presentation to allow for lots of QA.
Thank you for giving me this opportunity Des Moines community education, class, and community. I owe you all.
