Wow! This professional learning blog, “Booked Inn”, has been nominated on a shortlist for “Best Librarian/Library Edublog 2010” in The Edublog Awards. Voting (please click HERE) doesn’t seem too complicated; I would love your support. Many thanks in advance! It’s such a buzz to make the shortlist. (Looks like all that work on Build Your Online Profile with Tristan Bancks, at the Sydney Writers’ Centre in Term 3, is really paying off.)
Also, as an update to the work done by Kindergarten students this term, the first of our Photo Peach slideshows for the “Travelling Fearless Project” garnered 726 views (and 40 comments, including Sarah Davis, the illustrator of “Fearless”). Simply astounding! And it gets better: I Just received an automated email, via Photo Peach, that someone had made my page a favourite of theirs. I was curious, so tracked back and ended up on the main search page. It seems that, of Photo Peach’s 42 pages of “Recently Popular” slideshows, “Travelling Fearless” is on Page 1 (one of 15 image links sitting there, gathering even more views as I type). And the sequel, Farewell Fearless!, is on Page 3!
Well, the polls are now closed. Although the voting is a bit of a virtual bun fight (ie. encouraging the canvassing as many friends with Internet access as one can, plus any genuine followers of the blog), the biggest thrill was realising there were only 23 international sites on the shortlist (which had hundreds of nominations) – and that six(?) of the 23 were Australian!
The winners and runners-up are listed here. Special congrats to fellow Aussie TL bloggers, Judith and SLAV, for gaining a place in the final announcements! Jealous.
