The “What’s Your Story?” Blog Challenge is running again, thanks to all of you and your support! Some educators have offered to add their stories. If you want to as well, post your story (professional, personal, anything you think represents you) and:
1. Post on your blog and send me the link to add
2. If you do not have your own blog, I can post on mine.
I look forward to reading your stories!
Feel free to use #blogging #blogchallenge #education as your hashtags, or any other ones you prefer, when posting on social media!
A HUGE THANK YOU!

Thrilled to be part of this among this great group of educators.
I am so happy to have you here, Marjorie! A MILLION thanks!
Oh, goodie! I shared the old one on ESL Library’s Facebook page yesterday. I’ll add a link to this one! And maybe I’ll write another story…
Tara, I would LOVE that and thank you for everything!
You´ve “witnessed” part of the story of my life, but I think I owe this blog a new, refurbished version of it, so… I´ll get back to you soon!
Woooohooo! Go Fabiana and thank you ❤
Hi Vicky! I’m excited to read the new contributions. I always love a good story! I wrote a new story for your challenge. http://blog.esllibrary.com/2014/12/18/whats-your-story/
A million thanks for everything, Tara!
Vicky! I am thrilled to be amongst great team of Educators! Thanks for sharing it!
Thank you ever so much for contributing your story to the challenge, Priscila! What an honour to have you here. I admire you for your enthusiasm in anything you do, be it education, movies, music, your kids – everything!
Another one for your list, Vicky 🙂
Added! Thank you ever so much, Thiago and what an honour, that your first post is the blog challenge! I wish you a wonderful blogging journey!
Thank you so much, Vicky! My first post couldn’t have been different, you’re one of the educators that inspire me the most.
Many many thanks! I get all my inspiration from educators like you : ) Keep it up!
How did I miss this in December? Here’s my “About Me” post I often find myself reflecting on… http://eslcarissa.blogspot.mx/2010/06/how-i-got-here.html
Thank you so much for adding your link here – I am adding it to the challenge, if that is okay with you : )
Have a great New Year!
Thank you for sponsoring this project, Vicky. It’s so interesting to read people’s “story” from all around the globe. It’s a testament to the reach that you enjoy. Perhaps a next step is to put them all into a Flipboard document so that we can enjoy the entire collection?
Regardless, you’ve managed to get a collection of diverse and extremely interesting stories. You should feel good about what you’ve done.
Thank you ever so much for writing, supporting this project and for your wonderful comment! A Flipboard document is an awesome idea, thank you so much – I had not thought of it!
I hope we meet up face-to-face some day : )
Thanks so much,
I’m glad to share this post with you. i wrote to reflect about curiosity, part of a mooc course. http://haymajd.blogspot.com/2014/06/who-stole-curiosity.html
Thank you so much for adding your beautiful story!
It took me a long time before I knew what my story was, but then I realized that my blog was what I wanted to write about. It was a big change in 2014 for me, so I wrote a little bit about why I started blogging. http://wp.me/p577Go-83
Thank you so so much and I will add your post to the challenge : )
Nice to share a learning and a teaching story with others.Sounds like a great project Vicky
