Blogging Challenge - Tooting My Own Horn

This challenge is all about promoting my blog. And that is not something I'm very good at doing. I don't mind sharing the link with the staff at my school. I do toss it out there to them now and then. But beyond that, I've never really promoted myself until this challenge. And even then, only through the process of leaving comments on other blogs participating in the challenge.

So maybe it is time to stretch my wings.

I'm making a commitment to push myself in three new ways.

I'm going to comment much more often on blogs of other folks. I know that is a nice way to build networking and I'm going to be more active in that.

I'm going to include info and links to my blog more often in our school newsletters. That will build more of a connection to staff and parents.

And lastly, I do have a Twitter account. I never tweet...I just check other people. But I'm gonna give Twitter a real try. I'm gonna Tweet. Not to often, probably, but I'll at least give it a good try. And I'll use that as a resource for sharing a link to one of my blog posts now and then. So if you want to follow along, you can find me at  @eharden.

Hope to run into you there!

  1. Hi Erik,
    It is truly nice having been a part of this challenge and it has meant a lot to me that you and so many others has been to visit my blog. I also hope that I'll get better at promoting myself. That's of course one of the reasons I picked up blogging again. Also building my PLN has become important to me. Hope to see you out there soon again.
