In the light of the hallway a little tech coach lay on a laptop.
One Monday morning the library opened and - pop! - in came a laptop in the hands of the tech coach / would-be edublogger.
He started to look for a way 'in' to the blogosphere.
On Monday he read one blog. But he was still unknown.
On Tuesday he started two of his own blogs, but he was still unknown.
On Wednesday he commented on three prominent blogs, but he was still unknown.
On Thursday he registered with four tracking sites, but he was still unknown.
On Friday he embedded five widgets on his blog, but he was still unknown.
The following Monday he read blogs, started a post, checked Technorati, commented on blogs, analyzed Feedburner, edited his post, commented on more blogs, reviewed Statcounter, updated his widgets, posted a blog entry, pinged Technorati, and promoted his post on Twitter.
That night he had subscribers and an authority number on Technorati!
The next day was Tuesday. The edublogger wrote one short post, and after that he felt much better.
Now he wasn't looking for an 'in' any more - and he wasn't a no-name edublogger any more. He was a ranked, well-connected edublogger.
He built a small bastion, called a table, and sat at it. He sat at it for more than one year. Then he peered above his computer monitor, stood up, looked around and...
Realized there was a beautiful world around him!
