This blog details the learning journey to complete the Edublogs Teacher Challenge 2011. It is a conversation about being a beginner blogger so it may prove to be a little too self-deprecating at times for some readers!

This blog is about blogging - setting up a brand new blog, making decisions about design and appearance, and learning how to use the Blogger interface as well as the slightly different Edublogs interface. So it will also discuss the decisions made for the design and operation of my professional blog which is Applied Chaos Theory (hosted at Edublogs).

I hope that by journalling about my learning journey in the world of teacher blogging it may provide some small encouragement to other teacher bloggers as they begin their own learning journey in this new collaborative/connected world!

It's only a mistake if you don't learn something!

Had a visit from @2sparkley on my main blog today... lucky she visited because she tried the link to the blog I had mentioned in my post, and it didn't work! Bless her, she left a comment to notify me of the problem. When I went into the dashboard and edited the post I found the URL had a double http: at the front so it generated an error.
I remember how I inserted that link - typing the text, highlighting it and then changing it into a hyperlink... which obviously is the wrong way to do it so I'll copy and paste directly from a live website from now on!

Lesson for today: CHECK all hyperlinks after posting to make sure they work properly!
