This may come as a shock to my wife, but things are changing. I thought the least I could do is tell her, before she heard it from a stranger on the street… or on Twitter.
But don’t feel sorry for her; she’s tough. She’ll bounce back.
Yes, it’s time to cut ties… and move the blog.
What? You thought I was leaving my wife. Seriously? Where would I go?
I think we all know that I’m not capable of taking care of myself.
So I’m definitely not moving out of the house. She might divorce me and remarry, but I’m not leaving.
Maybe her lawyers can force me to live in the basement, but that’s where I draw the line.
If all goes well, maybe she will marry someone who plays golf. It would be nice to have a fourth for the Saturday tee time.
Plus, if the 3 of us are going to eat dinner together every night, it wouldn’t hurt to have the same hobbies. At least that will give us something to talk about.
But once again you’ve got me distracted.
I am considering moving the blog to WordPress.
It has outgrown its present home. It needs things that I can’t give it. I felt like the blog was my baby, then one day I looked up and it’s become a teenager.
Of course, it doesn’t slam doors, hog the bathroom, or ask for money (so I have that going for me…).
It does need other things.
More plugins, a better header, a place to recommend books and resources, possibly a picture of me and an explanation of my job, and definitely the ability to post pictures in individual blogs (yes, I know they are called posts… stop emailing me… I like to call them blogs).
I feel like if it isn’t getting better, it will get worse (I smell the first of a long line of PrincipalsPage.com bumper stickers and t-shirts).
While my wife has done a wonderful job setting the Blog up until now, I think I now need professional help.
Plus, she says she doesn’t have time and I should stop bugging her. Fair enough. Never let it be said that I don’t catch on after being told something like 147 times.
The whole design a blog thing is more complicated than you might think. And it turns out people don’t like to work for free.
I am in the process of assembling a team from all over the world. Only the best highly trained professionals are good enough to work on my blog.
Of course, as long as they are cheap.
A cartoonist from Minnesota has been hired to draw the header. I met him through a lady in Chicago whom I have never met (isn’t the internet cool?).
Soon, I will be hiring someone to do the nuts and bolts of the blog transfer. I am down to either a guy from India or a lady from Canada. Maybe someone from Tennessee. I can’t decide.
This wouldn’t be possible without my contacts on the internet.
I am pretty sure this is the wave of the future. And schools, teachers, and administrators need to understand this.
Kids have already got this, so we don’t have to worry about them.
It continues to dumbfound me that people think technology is a passing fancy.
Students aren’t going to wait on educators who continue to focus on having them look up words in the dictionary, spend years teaching them to write in cursive, or not take them to the computer lab on a daily basis.
But today I can’t focus on changing people’s ideas because I have work to do.
I need to get this blog moved. And sell my wife on the idea that husband #2 needs to be a golfer.
I have people moving the blog.
