In a short interesting discussion of the power of blogging, Seth Godin asked how many have a blog. Then he and Tom Peters started talking about them.
“what matters is the humility that comes from writing it.”
“metacognition of thinking about what you are going to say, how do you explain”
“If you’re good at it, some people are going to read it.”
“If you’re not good at it and you stick with it, you will get good at it.”
“It has changed my life. It has changed my perspective. It has changed my intellectual outlook.”
I like the idea of “if you’re not good at it and you stick with it, you will get good at it.” That is a lot of how I feel about students and writing. We’ll keep writing. You will get better. Students do get better. Some students will never become great, but they will become good through hard work and perseverance. I want to encourage them to put in the hard work because it is worth it.
