I am, by my nature, a creature of habit.
You may notice a long overdue change to this blog. The header, that’s been in place for the last almost three years, has changed. It was no longer relevant given the changing nature of Web 2.0 tools and search engines, so I decided it had to go. Some of you will be thinking, ‘Heck girl, that needed to be gone long ago!’, and you’d be right. But me, being the creature of habit that I am, resisted the change.
Personally, I find the fact that I’m content to let things stay the same for so long interesting. It’s at odds with the mantra I espouse here on this blog and within my school. I wonder what that says about me?
Anyway, change (small!) is here. The image was obtained from flickr, and is called Global Network. It was taken by Anthony Reeves, known on flickr as WebWizzard, on June 18th 2009.It is available under an Attribution 2.0 Generic (CC by 2.0) license. It’s thanks to people like Anthony, who use Creative Commons licenses like these, that people like me can use them in their blog headers. A big thank you Anthony. : )
So, how long will it stay? Who knows? Maybe I’ll become more experimental and make changes more frequently. A bit of ‘practice what you preach’!

I like it Jenny, I think I will need to update my blog with an image now. You are right about practicing what you preach. Leading by example with technology does turn some teacher’s heads.
Thanks Stacey. I like the clean image that it is, but I’m not sure it will stay for that long. Now that I’ve made the first change, maybe I’ll become addicted and do it more frequently! Good luck with your blog – let me know when you’ve added an image.
I have added an image but not as slick as yours! Surprisingly it’s a creative commons image.
Jenny, Your description of yourself fits me to a tee. Are we related? Well, of course – human beings. Silly me. I would guess there are many of us who are forward thinkers but really are not into change espescially when it is just for the sake of change. Sorry, Jenny but unlike Staceyt the picture doesn’t do much for me. I do like the connected message.
I think you’re right Rich. It’s a bit clinical I’m thinking. I’m warmer than that, and this blog needs to reflect me. I’ll keep looking, but it will stay like that until I can find a better option. Interesting how many of us are alike in our ways. Like you say, we share a common humanity.
Like the header. Strangely, I can’t remember your other one even though I’ve looked at it millions of times…
