In two weeks on January 23, I am permanently moving the slpsharing.com blog over to my website, ericsailers.com. I have been wanting to make the move for a while and it’s finally time. My own website allows me to have more flexibility with the design and information posted. I will continue blogging about speech-language pathology, special needs, iOS devices and apps at ericsailers.com/blog.html.
Thank you very much to everyone who has followed slpsharing.com. I see that over 1,200 people are currently following this blog, and I am grateful for every one of you who subscribed. I welcome you to continue following me by subscribing to my blog at ericsailers.com/blog.html.

As the new year is now upon us, a “New You” could involve a new diet, a new workout regimen, or what I’d like to pursue for this blog post: a new professional development plan.
A new professional development plan ought to include taking ownership by following online resources. I’d like to think that I contribute a fair amount of resources you can utilize.

Just like a new diet or workout plan would be discussed with your friends, a new professional development plan ought to also be shared with your friends. You may choose to suggest me as a Facebook friend, share this blog post on Twitter, and/or tell a colleague about an online resource using traditional word of mouth. It’s up to you as you begin the New Year with a New You!
