Clang the cow bell for MOO!
That time of year again, Scribe Fans! Some of you long-time followers might remember that The Scholastic Scribe was involved in a closer-than-close contest for Best Individual Blog about 1 year ago this month, in a competition known as The Edublog Awards. In fact, I lost by 9 votes, if I recall.
As we all know, close only counts in horseshoes & hand grenades...
Well, The Eddies have rolled around once more, with a couple of cool categories. And I'm making my own nominations this time around. Chief among them? Why, MOO, Ella Numera Dos' outstanding photoblog. And, yes, that is my youngest pictured above, decked out all her summer swim-team coach finery!
Here's the scoop:
Nominations are open until December 8; voting ends December 16. So, you've got plenty of time to put your own nominees forward for the 2009 Eddies. And hold on tight...be assured that Mrs. Scribe will let you know when the voting commences.
Cue the drumroll, please. I hereby nominate the following outstanding blogs for the 2009 Edublog Awards:
Best new blog: Miss Jo's San Francisco...Artistic, educational, comprehensive. A joy to look at & to read!
Best student blog: MOO...A college kid majoring in photo, she jumped into the blogosphere with enthusiasm & a great deal of God-given talent. Her topics are colorful, stark, informative; eye-candy, with an edge.
Best resource-sharing blog: TeachJ...I always find something of interest over here. He shares my passion for scholastic journalism & a great deal of knowledge with his readers.
Best teacher blog: Bellringers...Richie & I must have been separated at birth. She schools her journalistas down Texas-way in quite the Scribe-like fashion, never forgetting that this high school teaching janx is so much more than just a way to pay the rent...
Remember...I'll let you know when the voting gets underway. And thanks to Cate at Show My Face for letting me campaign a little today...
