Bloggers love the final post of any year, because it is time for “The Best Blog Posts of the Year.” Although it might as if bloggers are back patting themselves, there is a higher purpose for these posts: milking just a few more reads without having to write new content.
I’ve gone over the posts from the first year of Pondering the Classroom, and have selected my favorites. In no particular order, they are:
- Thoughts About Writing an Introduction on a Dark and Stormy Night – I wrote this for my students in Social Media, Blogging and Business class. They were having difficulties in writing an introduction, so I gave them an example.
- Prof Gone Wild on Fall Break – not a great blog post, but I love the title.
- Friday Bodyspeak – far and away my favorite post of the year.
- Thanksgiving at College, 2010 – I love the photos on this one.
- Professor Dump – I wrote this in a coffee shop. Everyone sitting around could see what I was writing about, and they kept sharing some of their nightmare college experiences.
- Crunch Time. AKA Cancel Your Life. – yes, personal grooming is optional by the end of final exam week.
- To Ripple or Not to Ripple – good solid advice for living life.
- How I Became a Professor – in case anyone is interested.
- How College Students Should Use Linkedin – good solid advice.
Enjoy! Share with all your friends on Facebook.
