When I started this blogging journey back in September of 2008, I had no idea that I would still be here almost 6 years later. I would also be underestimating by suggesting that it is by far the most rewarding thing I have ever done.

It all started with my desire to learn more about blogging so I could possibly use it within one of my classes. As a result, I setup this blog and made my first post to get the feel for how it all worked. Within a week of my initial post with motivation somewhat fading, I had received my first comment.

At the time this was incredibly motivating and led me to write my second and third posts within quick succession. However on closer inspection of my first blog post a few years later, It was strikingly obvious that my first initial comment and the subsequent inspiration to continue blogging was indeed nothing more than Spam. Looking back now this comment was without a doubt life changing and its almost hard to imagine that my blog, for which I now pour countless hours into and draw tremendous pride from may have found its way to the corners of the web never to be viewed again. It’s certainly funny how things turn out.

500,000 visitors later and an incredible amount of changes have taken place within the Physical Education classroom. Technology has shown over and over again that it continues to make the once impossible possible and I’m forever energised by exploring the connection this has to learning outcomes.

To thank you all for being part of the journey  and putting up with my ramblings, I will be giving away an iPod Touch. To enter, leave a comment in the comments section below. The prize will be drawn on the 4th of July, two weeks from now.

Good Luck and I look forward to bringing you plenty of new ideas in future blog posts.
