A New Blogging Venture

Posted on

As I look over my posts for the last couple of years, I notice that many of them are based on my professional life.  This blog was not originally intended to be a “teacher blog,” and I’ve had to learn what it means to put on the internet my ideas and experiences as a teacher.  It was a learning curve I hadn’t expected, but I am getting the hang of it.

This blog, Oldfangled, was originally intended to talk about how I live in the 21st century despite sometimes wishing I had been a pioneer girl.  The teacher stuff didn’t really fit that mold, but it was still about my experiences, so I didn’t worry about it too much.

But the lines began to blur a bit.  And I like things neatly categorized.  So, as Eminem says, “my OCD is konkin’ me in the head,” and I needed to make some boundaries more defined.

I started a new blog called Good Morning, Class!   That’s where I’ll write about all the teacher stuff I think about.  Books, curriculum, student achievement, lessons, classroom management, the whole bit.

Oldfangled will keep to home life: running, raising rabbits, home stuff, and so on.

If you’ve liked my posts that talk about my job, I hope you will follow me at my new blog!


About Karen Koch

I like the old-fashioned lifestyle. All this new-fangled stuff baffles me sometimes. I cherish living out in the country, raising chickens and rabbits, planting fruit trees, and enjoying a slow life filled with beautiful words and ideas. I don't always achieve a slow life. I teach middle school English and manage a little burgeoning farm with my husband, and somewhere in the midst of that, I try to find time for writing, running, knitting, reading, and playing the ukulele. And sometimes, I actually succeed.
