Growing a PLN - ISTE Blogging Buddies

My PLN has been an essential resource to help me grow as both a teacher and a learner. I am always looking for new ways to connect, so I recently joined the ISTE EdTech Coaches Network Blogging Buddies to connect, collaborate, and share. 
What are Blogging Buddies?
Blogging Buddies were inspired by Jennifer Hogan's "Compelled Blogger Tribe!"
Blogging Buddies are designed to be a chance for ed tech coaches (and those tasked with helping teachers integrate technology) to connect, network and learn from other coaches via blogging. Many ed tech coaches value blogging as a form of personal growth and reflection in their practice, but don’t always receive that online feedback in the form of comments from our coaching peers that we’re hoping for. So Blogging Buddies groups will be made up of about 5 ed tech coaches bloggers who come together to commit to posting on their blog at least once a month, read one another’s blogs, comment on one another’s blogs, and share the posts with their own networks. That’s it!
