Barbara Ganley and slow blogging

First heard about Barbara Ganley a few years ago when I was invited to, but could not make, an edublogger event in London. Occasionally you get invited to these things and cannot bear that you did not go as the write ups make it seem that if you were not there, then you missed a crucial heartbeat. Lucvkily she is now into slowblogging and so we may be able to catch her up. Slowblogging is like slow food (the opposoite of McDonald's I suppose).

At a time when I am wondering whether I should take a new direction in what I am doing or how I am doing it (my fiftieth birthday has pre-occuppied my mind in the same way as my tenth and my 18th(!) seeming more important than the others), I discover that at age 51 she has given up her job in academia and gone it alone.

It seems though that she is getting it together as there is this call for papers (California - very nice) which seems like a very good proposition to me. - all part of her venture into Centers for Community Digital Learning.

Anyway here is Downes citing some edubloggers he likes:

a lot of the time blogging becomes just another thing i don't have time to do. but now i know i'm a slowblogger. it's always good to have an identity!

Ohhh I like the term "slowblogger" - can I also say I am a "slowwriter" and a "sloweverythingadministrative"?

I dropped by your blog to ask you whether you will be at the UKLA conference, as I have been invited to speak there! Yay! Depending on what people are doing I may even pay a fleeting visit to Sheffield, though I suspect the timing could be bad. Anyway I do hope that I will have the chance to catch up with you and your wonderful colleagues if at all possible :)
