Where to now?

So, I've posted 100 entries, but my last one was a month ago. And it's been sporadic for the last few months. The problem was, I wasn't sure where I was going with this blog. There's only so much ranting I can do (sorry, I know some of you adore the ranting) and only so many things I can give advice on. Afterall, I'm still learning too.

*light bulb flash* First realisation - that it's ok to change the focus of the blog if it isn't really working. Today I bought myself a paper journal and just started writing about reading - I was still going 5 pages later. I have a lot to read, and reflect on and think about reading.

That's where I want to keep going at the moment. Talking about what reading means to me, and how this effects my teaching of it. A lot will come from paper journals, and hopefully it will be thoughtful and interesting. And a good reminder that I don't know everything, that it's okay to keep learning about myself as a reader.
