About the Edublogs...Part One

Now that I have finally gotten to slow down and relax on my vacation, I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who voted for my blog. I am very excited about winning the Edublog for Best Library Blog, but my reasons for wanting it might surprise you. During the voting phase, many of my students (and some friends) asked me what I would win as a prize. I told them that I wanted to expand my Internet presence as a media specialist and educator, and that I would be able to place the "winner" badge on my blog. My hope is that people who have never heard of me would give the blog a chance. Not sure if the students got it, but my friends sure did. Today's world is fueled by social media, and although I know I have an awesome blog, there are many others I continually learn from and respect, including Gwyneth Jones, Joyce Valenza, Tiffany Whitehead, Jennifer LaGarde, Nikki D. Robertson and Shannon Miller. If you are a teacher-librarian or media specialist, you should be following their blogs.

Part 2 of this post will cover this year's voting process.
