Pinterest, Teachers Pay Teachers, and Blogs: Etiquette

I must confess I have become addicted to Pinterest. My infatuation does come and go, but it continues to take up minutes each week, that might be better spent doing something else. Another site that just amazes me is Teachers Pay Teachers. There are thousands of teacher resources available at a click. I get lost there too. With so many teachers using blogs to fuel their Pinterest and Teachers Pay Teachers interests, I thought it might be a good idea to share an article I came across recently about Blog Etiquette. These days everyone seems to want to get in on the fun!

 I follow lots of blogs and a common posting I keep seeing is the author of the blog requesting others give them credit for their work. In the last week I have come across this three times. Yikes! Many teachers have asked me about the do’s and don’ts in blogging. We’ve had some great discussion about sharing, copyright, and giving credit. Pinterest, Teachers Pay Teachers, and teacher blogs make it so easy to find fabulous things to share, but we want to make sure we are being considerate of those folks.

I try my best to share where I find great ideas. I do find a lot on my own searches, but I have some favorite sites that over the years have served me well as fountains of ideas. In my early days of blogging I didn’t think much about copyright and assigning credit to other bloggers and resources, but I have come to appreciate the practice. I am thrilled when others link my blog to their posts. It makes me happy that they are reading Lori’s Latest Links and have found something to share with their readers. I hope you find the article helpful and answers some of your questions as you enter the Blogosphere!  Have fun blogging, getting lost on Pinterest, and selling your great ideas on Teachers Pay Teachers! Don’t forget to check out the Blog resources found at the top of the page.

Thanks to for a very helpful resource.

#personlizedlearning starts with voice and choice. A PBL is a great start. To get started, consider @drlorielliott book #pblanywhere that lays out how to go from standards to a PBL.

Excited to share my new PBL online course with you! Thanks @dbc_inc for this opportunity!

Our community unit came to life! We brainstormed wants & needs, planned, & created a community we would like to live in. This year we decided to take our plans to City Hall to share with the people in charge! @isd544otters @teacher2teacher @drlorielliott @DitchThatTxtbk

A short and sweet sesh on #PBL by @drlorielliott hosted by @dbc_inc with @burgessdave and @TaraMartinEDU It's validating to hear that so many others are taking #PBL and #inquiry and running with it!
