Here is a neat idea I got from Lee Kolbert. She says, “Taking a long hard look at the words that are most often used in my blog is a great way to analyze my blog’s direction.” I took her up on the suggestion, and had interesting results. She suggests that we follow these steps:
1. Create a Wordle from your blog’s RSS feed.
2. Blog it and describe your reaction. Any surprises?
3. Tag others to do the same.
4. Be sure to link back here and to where you were first tagged.
I am happily surprised by the fact that “students” is obviously the largest word. I feel that this rings true to my usual focus in my posts. The other thing that surprised me a little bit was how large the word “elementary” was. This makes clear to me that I spend much of my time focusing on my elementary program and how to make it better. The elementary program is a very important facet of the entire band program in the district.
