I know that it is a somewhat leap of faith to start following a blogger, and hoping that they will continue to give you useful information. Let me tell you a little about myself, so you can know where I am coming from:
I am the Director of Instructional Technology in the El Paso Independent School District in El Paso Texas USA. I have had that position for 8 years, although when I blog, I blog as a private citizen and not as a representative of my job.
I have been blogging since 2003. My first blog was called “Byte Speed” but after 2 years, I had to take it down because there was some company by the same name and my blog was getting more traffic than their website. That apparently pissed them off enough to sick a lawyer on me. They gave me a cheap-ass gray-market no-name laptop from Asia that weighed 15 pounds if I gave up the name so I did because they had lawyers and I didn’t.
I then started a blog called Intended Consequences, and it lasted all the way until Apple pulled the support of iWeb, which was the platform I was blogging on. (iWeb +Mobile Me.) You can still Google Tim Holt Intended Consequences to see all the re-blogged articles that were created at that site.
When that died, I moved here to Tumblr because Will Richardson had just moved here, and he is a guy I respect, and frankly, it looked like a pretty easy place to blog on. I like technology, but I really like easy technology that just does what it is supposed to do without biting me. MAybe that is why I like Apple so much…
Anyway, back to the point:
I want to thank you for following me. If you haven’t figured it out by now, this Tumblr is a combo Self reflective blog and place where I like to put a lot of web links to to things that interest me. I use the site as sort of my online filing cabinet that I share with the world. As long as Tumblr is up and running, I plan on adding material. I hope you find it useful.
So that is what makes this Tumblr site. Thanks for sticking with me, thanks for following me, and if you have a chance once in a while, tell someone about my site. I am not one of the “big boys” in ed tech, so I don’t do a lot of keynotes where I can promote my site and myself, so any hits to the site are appreciated.
