My First Month on NewBreak
After My First Week
During my first month, I wrote about my experiences as a paraeducator, shared tips for other paraeducators, and covered news related to the education industry as well as current events and politics. In just 10 days, I hit the 100-registered followers mark!
However, while writing about politics and current events got me the most views and subscribers, it also brought out the meanest comments from trolls. Can't please everyone, right? But it's all good. I've decided to refocus my content on my different blogs and truly limit my political contributions.
