Recollection,

The act or power of recollecting.

Strangely when I started writing this post in my t-break and found Andrew’s blog is blocked by our filters, I recolled the prompt as remembrance.

My Recollection is helped by my blog. I fairly regularly search it to aid my rather shaky memory. In fact I’ve an Alfred shortcut that helps with that.

I also love looking back either at random or to see what I find for the particular day. A while back i made a plugin but it had a few problems, luckily it inspired Alan who made a better one.

Not only does that give me a nice page but I can show one particular date like by using [postedtoday month="11" day="1"]

David has pushed this on by getting the EDUtalk.cc domain name and applying […]

His subheading changes regularly, probably one of those fortune cookie plugins, but todays gave me a smile: One of may favourite words after serendipity. Fair cheered me up after a day at work.

    • ICT Coordinators meeting I gave a short presentation on weblogging and podcasting. I think I use the wrong slides. these are the ones I meant to use. A few missing bits.

    This stuff takes me back to things fully and half forgotten.  One of the posts from the 1st of November 2005 links to a presentation I made to fellow teachers about blogging. It now rests in the Internet Archive, in a fairly broken format a bit like my memory. Blogging among other things is a tool for recollection, depending on frail technology and relying on foresight, which in hindsight could do with some work.

    This post was inspired by Andrew Canion’s Blogvember Prompt List. This arrived in micro.blog at he same time as #mbnov, microblogvember.

  1. @canion I guess a blog is a remembrance engine. Photos too. I really like comparing views at different time of the year and over the years.
    Your site is blocked cause it falls into the class “blogs and social media”! One of the joys of working as a teacher (in North Lanarkshire).
