Lots of great winners announced in this year's 2011 Edublog Awards. Still wish more people voted but it does go up every year.
Thank you to those you nominated and voted for me. You put me in the top 5 tweeters! My friend Steven Anderson @web20classroom won.
Please take the time to broaden your RSS over the holidays and make room for some wonderful new voices! Anything that celebrates educational writing and sharing in positive ways should be shared!
And just a word here. Although there are great winners, remember that if you are taking time to write and share that you ARE a winner already. There is an innate desire of most teachers to be thanked. Such little appreciation is meted out in teaching that it is almost a hunger. Every follower, every hit, every reader is a reward. Every comment is a gift. Every blog post has the potential to be a legacy. Share.
Way too few teachers are recognized for anything and even fewer voted on by teachers. Use this list to find some totally awesome voices but set as your goal to find those that haven't hit the radar yet. Converse and enjoy your area. Don't let "awards" get you down. Be the reward to those who use their precious time to follow you by being excellent, helpful, kind, and respectful. The greater and more excellent we are, the more people will begin to recognize our profession for what it is... The most noble of callings.
Congratulations to everyone.
