Our first blogging for business class in Des Moines was such a pleasure

Tonight was the first meeting of our Des Moines blogging for business class at Roosevelt High School.  What a fantastic group!  I'd like to say a special thank you to the class for welcoming me and having fun with me as we dispelled blogging myths, touched on some "blogging basics", and did some "live blogging" with conversations, comments, and "linkages" to resources using our voices vs. our computers.  It was a real hoot.

Since this is my first time teaching the class...every one is a learning experience.  I couldn't have had a better "first class" so thanks a million.  I shared my very first post with the class too.  That one always elicits a few chuckles...and jerks at my heart strings.

We left off tonight discussing RSS feeds and WISHING the wifi worked in the building.  No sweat.  The team has a homework assignment to leverage a feed reader to subscribe to some feeds (mine are required reading!). 

I can't wait til next week and possibly our first guest blogger/speaker.  I better tighten up my presentation to allow for lots of QA. 

Thank you for giving me this opportunity Des Moines community education, class, and community.  I owe you all.

Congrats, Doug! It's a great feeling to share things that you know with others, isn't it?

Class was great. Will try not to talk so much next class.
Doing homework with my sister right now over the phone.
Not very successful - laughing too much. Amber has been
eating every feed she finds - I'm not that hungry. See
you all tonight at class.
