This post is part of the #EdublogsClub – a group of educators and edtech enthusiasts that blog around a common theme each week. Simply write a post and share it to join in, or sign up to receive email reminders of each new prompt.
Quotation, n: The act of repeating erroneously the words of another.
― Ambrose Bierce, The Unabridged Devil’s Dictionary
If you’re active on social media or enjoy reading blogs, you will no doubt be aware of the popularity of quotes.
There is something about quotes that people find inspiring, motivating and worthy of sharing.
Perhaps they are a good pick-me-up when times get tough, or maybe they remind us of the meaning behind our everyday routine.
Whatever the case, quotes can be powerful. They are also fun to weave into your blog posts to back up your thoughts, provide alternative viewpoints or encourage readers to reflect. Quotes can help you begin or end your blog post with impact.
Prompt: Share your favorite quotes
You might already have some favorite quotes that have never left you. Otherwise, you may enjoy browsing an online collection of quotes, such as those at GoodReads.
- Share one or more favorite quotes in a blog post
- Perhaps you could choose a topic to share a collection of quotes on (such as leadership, reading or curiosity)
- Your quotes might be from somebody famous, or from an everyday person who has impacted your life
Tip: Some people like to make their quotes into a fun visual, like the one I made above. You can easily do this with a tool like PicMonkey, Adobe Spark or Canva.
Don’t forget to leave a comment with the link to your blog post.
Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.

I’d just done some quotes a few weeks earlier, but they are always a good bet for stimulating students, so here’s another post on “3 Ways to Use Quotes in a School Library.”
Thanks for sharing your post! I’ll be sure to check it out.
I have been struggling to join in this #EduBlogsClub prompts and blog but just got around to write and publish this time. Unfortunately, I see the prompts are ending for this year. I will, however, look over previous prompts and see if I can write more.
Below is my post on quotes as I reflected during the recent World’s Teachers Day
What a fantastic post! Thank you for sharing it. I have just left you a comment.
We have a new post that has just been published with some ideas on how you can keep going with the #EdublogsClub.
Thanks for your comments both here and on the blog. Seen the blog post on ideas . . . and while I would love to write new posts for ALL the prompts, I might not have that much space. Can I ‘submit’ an old post for a few of them?
(P.S Thanks for giving me the idea of appending my twitter handle to my comments! 🙂
Of course! You can pick and choose whatever prompts you like. You can do one or 50. We just hope the prompts will give a few educators with “blogger’s block” the chance to get back into writing in some way.
Great to connect!
I dare to translate my favourite poet from French to English: I just hope I was faithful to him. http://stora.edublogs.org/2017/10/01/quoting-christian-bobin/
