Blogging is a cycle.
When you are a brand new MOOC student, this is a good visual for what it feels like to me.
It feels like a lot of people are already there.
And then once you get into it, things start to fall in place. People actually read your blog posts. They respond. Things fall into place.
I'm a cyclist. When I'm faced with something that is too hard to ride, I say to myself:
Maybe someday, but not today.
And I make a mental note. I try it the next time.
I'm seeing ETMOOC (and the new direction for my career) as a way to create something new. Someday.
