Simply The Best

Tēnā koutou katoa – Greetings to you all
Guitar Front - atrist Ken Allan.
This month Joanna Young, of Confident Writing, challenges bloggers/ writers to select the best writing from their year’s posts. Accepting Joanna's challenge put a focus on what writing is all about for me.
I pick my September post, Learning and the Much Maligned Mistake.

This post is simply the best because it embraces learning, an important aspect of my blog, and is about the hallmark of the learner.
In particular, 2008 was a learning year for me; I learnt to be a blogger.

It's apparent that your blog is a vehicle for you to explore your thoughts and to put them in a way that is clear, creative, and meaningful. I find it interesting that the genre of blogging carries with it its own set of rubrics. Figuring out what that is has been a process of growth for me.

Great post about learning from mistakes, something that carries a powerful dynamic for teachers and parents.

Ken, thanks so much for joining in this project. It's wonderful to connect up with so many different writers, bloggers, teachers and learners!

One of the things I love about blogging is the way it encourages you to experiment and learn from what works... and what doesn't. A nice fit with your 'best' post.

Best wishes

Ken, thank you again for presenting an opportunity to reflect on my learning. Your thoughtful and reflective posts always leave me thinking.

Kia ora Shaun!

Reflecting is a great tool for learning.

I dropped a vid by Benjamin Zander at the end of the post, just recently. On reflection :-) I just couldn't resist it. If you think learning from mistakes is a great idea, you'll love Zander. Check it out.
