Chasing Content – May 2012

At the start of every month I like to look back at what was happening on the blog last year at this time.

It’s May, so construction season is well under way. Let’s jump in the excavator and see what we can dig up.

You can read all of the posts from May 2012 . . .
or these stand-out ones.
Old Ruins in Ingersoll
I love to explore nature trails. When I first discover a new one, I bring along my camera, lace up my running shoes, and hit the trail unsure of what I will find.
On this particular run, I was compelled to stop at an old ruin and take a few pictures. When I got home, I took to the Internet and found out some interesting history about the modern ruin.
Music for Skaters
I also love skateboarding and mixtapes. I combined my love for these two things and created a mixtape all about skateboarding. Not only are these good tunes to skate to but most of them are actually about skateboarding as well. Download or stream the tape for free!
Women in Hip-Hop II
We celebrate International Women’s Day every year by dedicating all seven hours of our overnight hip-hop radio program to the Women in Hip-Hop. Here is the easiest way to download last year’s broadcast. It was our 2nd annual special.
Stay tuned to this blog for the 3rd annual download bundle.
If I Won the Lottery, I Wouldn’t Quit My Job

My List of 2012 Reads
Last year I kept a detailed reading log right here on Silent Cacophony. I surprised myself with the sheer number of books and the variety of things that I read over the course of the year.

I’m having a friendly competition with myself to see if I can top 65 books read for the 2013 Reading Year. 
What Teachers Do – It’s More Than You Think
I wear a lot of hats as an elementary school teacher. There are so many things that I need to juggle on a daily basis. I give it my all and try my best to motivate and inspire my students.
But it feels like not too many people understand my chosen profession. If that includes you, please click through and explore this post in detail. Thank you!
