Since its launch the K2Twelve blog has gone through several iterations. It began as a response to a post by Penelope Trunk called, “Blogging is Essential for Your Career.” A friend sent me her post and I have been a fan since.
Penelope writes about business and careers. I like Penelope’s blog because it is well-edited but socially unfiltered. For example, she wrote a post comparing women’s salaries to the amount of oral sex they get. She has also written successful posts where she turns personal (somewhat intimate) stories about her life like her divorce and her Asperger Syndrome into sensible career advice. Though I haven’t always agreed with her opinions, I have always enjoyed reading her posts.
Penelope also has an education blog. She has written some interesting posts on the benefits and challenges of homeschooling, while criticizing traditional public schools. I don’t share her views on the topic but her education posts are just as interesting to read as her career posts.
I want the posts on K2Twelve to exhibit the same sincerity as Penelope’s posts. As the name, K2Twelve, might suggest I write about education in grades K-12. I’ve written about school choice, zoning, social media, and technology in education. I am a lover of pop culture and media, so it isn’t unusual to use a TV show or song lyric as my point of reference.
