Two years ago, I was preparing to embark on my first #sol challenge. I learned about #sol15 from one of Aileen Hower’s tweets and was intrigued by the idea of blogging every day for a month. I remember wondering if I could really blog every day for a month and if anyone would ever read any of my posts. However, I decided that #sol15 was something that I needed to do, so I went to wordpress.com and created this blog, starting a journey that changed me as a teacher-writer and empowered me in ways that I could never have anticipated.
Last year, I wasn’t able to participate as much as I wanted to because I was working on my dissertation. I missed the challenge and consistent sense of being a part of this community of teacher-writers. So, on the eve of the #sol17 challenge, I am ready for a month of writing that I know will be challenging, but also incredibly rewarding.
