No, that’s not the name of a restaurant (though maybe it should be); I’m speaking at my cousin’s 4th grade class today about blogging! First I’ll be doing a short talk about being an engineer (career day, woot!) but then I’ll be hanging out with Mrs. Knott proper and discussing my love of blogging with her awesome kiddos.
A short list of why I love blogging:
- It’s an informal way to practice writing, which is important in all walks of life (even as an engineer!).
- It’s fun to write about something you love! (I <3 food)
- It connects you to other people who love the same thing. If your blog gathers a following, the folks reading are probably a lot like you which is awesome — instant friends!
- It’s a great hobby. What else are you going to do with your spare time? May as well use your brain a bit and write!
I’m looking forward to meeting everyone; wish me luck and thanks for having me, Mrs. Knott!! :)
P.S.: Mrs. Knott’s class collects box tops for education and hopes to win a quarterly competition within the school for collecting the most! If you see a box top, please save it and send it to me! Email me for more info: firstname.lastname@example.org.
