Most people think January 1st is the time to start anew.  Not us teachers.  Fall is the beginning of the school year and it alerts us because Target starts carrying folders and Crayola Markers for ridiculously cheap prices.  Fall is a time where lists can be made and changes can occur naturally, just as the kids are getting onto the school bus.

I was asked by our local online Patch newspaper to blog for them.  It doesn't pay (booo...) but they want me as I am with my kind of writing.  I took this as an enormous compliment and an awesome challenge.  Plus, it could open up all sorts of opportunity for me once the littlest Picky heads to school (did I mention that potty-training is actually going ok?!).

Anyway, I come to you because I need your help.  What should I write about?  What blog posts did you favor?  I am really nervous and I'm not sure why; you, as my readers, are very important to me but I never looked at this more than an online journal that some people read.

So please help me!  And some good luck might be nice.

I think you are doing a great job! I recently started getting the Patch online and have enjoyed your blogs very much. I am also liberal, vegan, and a stay-at-home-mom. I'm happy to see that there is another person out there to whom my family can relate, and I'm excited that you are able to share your voice with the members of your community. The folks in this area could benefit from seeing things from a different perspective sometimes. Keep up the good work! (Wait, did I just use the word "folks"? Yikes!)
