I received an email from 2012 Fascination Awards to inform me that I have been nominated for The Most Fascinating Blog in 2012, Category: Elementary Teacher Blogs! WOW! Needless to say...I'm SUPER EXCITED!!
Here is a snippet of information I copied from the link about this award:
"The Fascination Awards are an annual collection of the web’s most inspirational and thought-provoking blogs. All participants are nominated by our editorial team and voted on by our readers.
We know that all blogs are not created equal, so we want to recognize websites that go above and beyond, providing truly engaging content for their visitors."
Isn't that cool??? Per the email:
"Voting begins May 14th at 12:01 AM (EST).The blog with the most votes by May 21st at 11:59 PM (EST) will win the grand prize, a $100 restaurant gift card."
I've noticed that a lot of my "blog roll" has been nominated as well! I feel so privileged that someone thinks my blog is interesting and inspiring! It's like having someone open my file cabinet in my classroom and commenting about how organized and neat it is!! (That is soooo not the case in my classroom file cabinet, by the way!)
I have posted the "voting" button on the left hand side of my homepage. Keep those fingers ready and start voting on May 14th!
