Throughout 2017, we published a weekly blogging prompt for educators and edtech enthusiasts. We called this project — #EdublogsClub.
When the catch-up weeks were removed, we had a collection of 35 published blog post prompts. We have added these prompts, along with an additional 15, to create a new ebook of post ideas for educational bloggers.

Using The 50 Prompts
These prompts could be used in a variety of ways. Here are some suggestions:
- Bloggers who participated in the #EdublogsClub during 2017 might want to keep their blogging streak going by working on the additional 15 prompts (or pick and choose/catch up on missed prompts).
- Educators who are new to blogging, or have let their blog lapse, might use the prompts as inspiration to get going.
- Pre-service teachers might like to work through some blogging prompts as a way to begin their reflective journey as an educator, and start building a professional learning network.
- Retired teachers might use the prompts as a way to publish memories, reflections and wisdom around certain topics.
- You might consider getting a group of friends or colleagues together and forming your own #EdublogsClub. Each week, you could choose a topic to write about and encourage each other with comments and feedback.

I did number #39 : What could have been an alternative career for you?
I could’ve been a surgeon. When I was younger, I loved watching discovery health. I liked watching gruesome stories of how people were sent to the ER. I also liked watching doctors perform surgeries on various shows. So when I was in college, I couldn’t decide between engineering and med school. So I became a biomedical engineering(BME) major pre-med student. WHOOOOO that was definitely not the best decision for me . Anyway, after breaking my back my first year in college to get into the BME program, i finally began to take some of my pre-med courses during my second year. My first course was organic chemistry. I thought to myself, “ I was a beast in Chem in high school and during my 1st year, this should be a piece of cake! Then after the first class, I realized I was “drawing pictures” haha. And due to my busy schedule I fell asleep during every class that year, even though I sat in the very front with a red bull in my hand. At that moment, I decided that I had fallen too behind. I hadn’t learned a thing and I was going to fail my first college course. Since I did not want to extend my time in college due to repeated courses, I decide to drop my “pre-med” concentration and just stick to biomedical engineering. Oh and by the way, did I mention that I am a teacher?!? That’s a story for a different day!
Thank you for this creative topic on how to start an education blog! I want to contribute to #49 and add, “what is one thing you would change about the curriculum in your state?”
I did #49 https://teacherwritegood.com/2019/03/19/50-writing-prompts-for-middle-school-students/
Thanks for the suggestion!
These are such great ideas! Thanks for sharing, Alexandria!
Hello, I made my first post a concert review which could be described as topic #36. However, I’ve come from a background in music so it’s more in my comfort zone!
Thanks for sharing your post! I love this line, “These are opportunities to travel and discover places that really, have no address.”
Keep it up!
