And the winners of The Edublogger’s Birthday Celebration Competition are | The Edublogger and they include this post I did on Using threaded comments to build a writing community in your classroom | Reflections on Teaching. I also did this post, More than words… | Reflections on Teaching, about using images, which Sue mentioned was good, but with the large number of competitors, didn’t pick up a prize. There are totally no hard feelings about that. I actually though this post from one of the student entrants had the best point about using visuals:
When a person clicks on a link to your page or types it into a sidebar, they don’t want to see a plain white page full of non-stop, brain numbing words. No bland font or sleep-inducing posts. — Building a better blog and having fun doing it!!! | ♥Ashley’s Blog
I do think my post had good points about fair use law in the U.S., but Ashley had a more succinct and pithy approach which I think was superior.
I’d like to suggest that if Sue wants to point out a post that may have one good point, she might consider honorable mentions. She obviously did a lot of work on this, and I’m just pleased to have one winner, so I’m not going to be piggy.
