Highly Effective Blogging?

I've always liked success books. That was what got me into career counselling. A friend said: "So how does all that stuff apply to me?", and off I went. If I ever manage to wangle my way into the kind of teaching life that I now want, having read all these books will then also be revealed as having made me a better teacher.

One of the more admired of these books is Stephen Covey's The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, and blogger Mike Saunders has made the ideas in this book the basis of a number of posts about how to be a Highly Effective Blogger. Because let's face it, most of the people who read this are bloggers or blog readers, not Education Ministers. They may also be teachers, or concerned parents, but blogging is what we most of us here, now, have in common. So I'm going to read Mike's stuff on all this, starting here.

I've started. It's good, and I will continue.

Just to say now, I think that ideas like those of Covey apply just as strongly to quite small children as they do to adults. It's never too soon to start learning to be Highly Effective.

My thanks to Instapundit for the connection.
