I Love Langwitches

Effective blog posts are ones that make me really pay attention. I don’t know if I believe that every blog post should be effective. Sometimes it’s just good to write without reason…

I am writing this as part of the blogging challenge. Today’s challenge is to share an effective post. One of my favorite blogs that I go to again and again is Langwitches, and here is one of my favorites.

This is an effective post because it engages me. I can see pictures and work that Silvia has done. I can immediately imagine how this will connect to my own life and teaching career. I love the graphics she creates. She is imminently present in the tech course I teach during the summer.

It isn’t that she’s an amazing wordsmith; it’s that she knows how to tell a story that is visually appealing. It’s simple. It speaks to me as an educator. Here is another great one.

I tend to think effectiveness, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. What works for me may not work for you. I don’t mind the busy-ness of her posts. In fact, I’m drawn to it. But I think it may put others off. All effective blogs speak to you and your interests.

You can’t please all of the people all of the time, but you can find your niche.

  1. I love the Langwitches Blog too – In one of her recent posts she talked about Skyping and Assessment with students. There was a PDF for download that is just fabulous. That’s just one of the reasons I love that blog too!
