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