Edublog Awards Nominations 2012

When it comes to the Edublogger Awards, I've "always (been) a bridesmaid and never a bride" but surprisingly (for me!) that's...OK.  Because I get SO much more from the Edublog Award process learning about and from new teachers, librarians, administrators, etc. than I can ever explain. It has been a super game changer and PLN builder for me. NEXT year for this I've got a new idea...I've created a new Sqworl group to save all those amazing blogs & educational sites I run across that I'm keeping an eye on to make next year's noms EASIER and hopefully faster!

 - Sue Waters (I swear, this is NOT a suckup!)  I know over at Edublogs it's probably "family hold back" but have you READ that Edublogger blog lately?  It's ridiculously Amazing!!
Still don't believe me? Read this mind blowing post!

I was so honored to meet her this summer whilst speaking in Perth, Australia and let me assure you that she is just as amazing in person as she is online! Actually, more!  (She's pictured above L-R - Dave & Sue Waters, Audrey Nay, & Joyce Valenza)
Though I doubt her humility & desire to not win an award that she's basically running will allow this nom to go through, she is SO well deserving! So, OK....though I know they will prolly NOT choose her....she gets it from me! See below! [grins and steps gingerly off box of soap]
You have until November 26th

  3. Awww, I'm blushing and SO honored to get your Edublog nomination for librarian's blog!! There are so many AMAZING and inspiring ones out there, and it's humbling that you thought of mine :)

    And I'm still miffed that you've never won this category (or any of the others that you've been nominated for so deservingly). Seriously!

  5. I am so amazed to be on this list Gwyneth. What a shot in the arm for me. Your magic wand is giving me the motivation to keep on blogging. In fact, I just finished a new blog post (after a little drought) and thank you.

    You are the best, Daring Librarian, the best! Thank you for taking a dare out on me! :-)
