Inspiration for the Blog Summer Bucket List
Blog bucket lists have become popular vehicles not just for listing things you’d like to do before you die although I do have one of those lists also. I have seen bucket lists for summer and Christmas activities and ones for renovation and work goals. This idea for a blog bucket list came to me one day while I was working as an occasional teacher. I was covering a primary class late in the last school year and their teacher had left a lesson for them that I found both interesting and applicable to my own blogging endeavors. She had left them with a writing assignment which involved completing a bucket list of activities they would like to participate in this summer. As I wandered the class, watching them work, I was amazed at the buzz of excitement around a writing assignment. Every child was keenly involved in creating a list of fun things they wanted to do during the summer holidays. Sharing ideas with each other, it was a great tool to inspire even the most tentative writers to put pencil to paper. I too was looking forward to a summer of experimenting with a new blog. In my own mind, I was mulling over how I could high-jack this idea for my own purposes. Starting a new blog, I realized I would need focus and a plethora of ideas which would involve family fun in the summer but provide me with fodder for regular posts. Thus, I came up with a Blog Bucket List for the summer.
