Nominated for an Edublog Award!

Wow…  I looked in my email today and there was a note saying that Betchablog has been nominated for a 2007 Edublog Award in the category of Best Teacher Blog. I think there are probably a whole lot of teacher blogs that are a whole lot better than anything I could do, but I’ve still had a big smile on my face all afternoon!

Of course, you can’t take yourself too seriously (especially with something as potentially vacuous as your own blog!) but it certainly is a very nice feeling to be at least nominated for an Edublog Award.  As I’ve said several times, the real reason I write this blog is for myself as a way to “think out loud”, so to think that someone else would have taken the trouble to nominate it to even be considered is very humbling, especially when I look at the impressive company I’m sharing the list with! Thanks whoever did it!

And just to top it off, it seems that the Virtual Staffroom Podcast has been nominated for Best Educational Use of Audio.

It’s a nice way to start my week.  Remember, vote early, vote often!!  🙂

  1. Chris,

    Congratulations – you deserve it!

    Your “thinking out loud” helps me to understand edtech better and shows me some of the possibilities I have yet to explore.

    No matter the outcome of the voting, you and all the rest of the nominees are definitely winners in my book.

  2. Can I add my congratulations to the growing list Chris. All the work you do for the online world of educators is greatly appreciated and you certainly deserve the accolades.
    Keep up the good work. I look forward to watching your progress both in the edublog and podcasting awards as well as in your new professional adventure next year.

  3. Thanks for the kind words 🙂 I really do appreciate it. More than you may realise. It has been an incredibly difficult year for me on a personal level this year, with some really desperately low points in it.
    Apart from my wonderful Linda, it has been my connections to the world of blogging, podcasting and online communities has really helped me keep my sanity for the last 11 months.
    Thank you.

That's all well and good, but what do YOU think?
