I was asked the other day by another professional to share some blog posts that have inspired me. She was curious about starting up her own blog and wanted to read through a few different writers’ works to get some inspiration. To be honest, there are so many great educators posting wonderful blog posts that it is difficult to narrow it down. Here is my attempt at creating a list of some of my favourite blog posts from the past few years. Find one you haven’t read and take a look:
