Blogging is an act of reflection.  To me, reflection consists of and or all of the following:
  • imagining or empathy
  • observing and examining
  • forming opinions
  • questioning
  • describing
  • making connections
  • expressing emotion and thoughts.
Perhaps one of these will help you understand what I am looking for - 

Think of the dissection of an animal - exploring each part you find inside the body. Labelling what you find. Probing for more information, connections and significance.


Remember how we looked at the artwork of Rembrandt (Return of the Prodigal Son)? Find the big picture, then examine the details that help you appreciate the big picture.


Make sure you include these three steps:

What? (Summarise)

Where? (Quote)

Why? (Significance and connection)
