I’m an evaluator. I want to make a difference in my programs.
One program that I run is this blog.
I want to know if I am making a difference because that is what evaluation is.
I have over 300 comments on the blog post by this title currently in my queue.
These need to be read (definitely). Reacted to (or not). Approved (or not).
Perhaps that there is over 300 comments is a measure of difference to the reader; perhaps not.
I am curious as to how people find this particular blog post [Is this blog making a difference (2)].
So here are some of the comments from this post:
It’s difficult to tell but ultimately, any blog will have it’s own benefits. Keep it up!
I love reading books and articles and some of those makes difference in my life or my Behavior.
Your bolg is good and even inspired me too.
My answer is yes. Your posts were made sense and a difference. If you think that your doing able to help others, keep going and do the best.
Blogs are really helpful according to me it gives me a freedom to express my knowledge
…Your article is thought provoking, and I appreciate your post.
This is only a small sample. Most are one line. Occasionally, I get a comment that is longer than one line.
So I will keep on doing what I’m doing–writing weekly (more or less).
The Iranian new year (Norooz) happened March 20, 2017.
Norooz has many spellings.
Like most holidays that have been around for a while, Norooz has a lot of symbolism. Basically, Norooz is the beginning of spring in the northern hemisphere. (I have friends in the southern hemisphere who decry my acknowledgement of this holiday as it is the beginning of Autumn where they are.)
Each year, I celebrate the holiday in verse. The offering this year follows: (I include an image of Daphne because Daphne is one of my favorite flowering plants that occurs when Spring comes.)
Once again the new year is here,
giving us the opportunity to see a new world.
Let us hear from the physicist looking deeply,
the chemist breathing completely,
the biologist listening closely.
Not the ideologue or the fanatic.
As we look and breath and listen,
the Mother renews with the new year.
Rejoice. Once again.
