It’s time to vote for the 2007 Edublog Awards. There are LOTS of great candidates. Go vote for your favorites and discover new ones!
The Did You Know? video that went viral (10 million online viewers and counting!) is nominated for most influential blog post. Although it was my slightly modified version of the video that went viral, a vote for the post is really a vote for Karl Fisch’s vision and creativity. Although Karl’s own blog is nominated in this category, I confess that I am hoping that Did You Know? wins instead.
I’m also delighted that LeaderTalk is nominated for best group blog. This is a real tribute to the nearly 50 busy administrators and faculty who somehow find time each month to share what it’s like to live the life of a school leader today. FYI, we’re always looking for new authors. Drop me a note if you’d like to write for LeaderTalk!
[revision: I forgot to note that the TechLearning blog (for which I am a contributor) is also a nominee for best group blog. Oops!]
The Edublog Awards are one way to recognize great blogging. In December I’m going to highlight some other bloggers who I think deserve a bigger audience. Stay tuned!
I voted for LeaderTalk. Although TechLearning.com was nominated, LeaderTalk breaks new ground in its focus for administrators and educational leaders. It’s a shame that there isn’t an edublog award for blogs for educational leaders.
The Pulse (which also awesome and prob would have gotten my vote if included) would have presented excellent competition against TechLearning.com’s Blog, as would the Infinite Thinking blog by Google-hired bloggers.
Though I don’t know if The Pulse bloggers are paid, I do remember being offered $100 per month for The Infinite Thinking so I’m assuming they get paid. However, TechLearning.com bloggers aren’t compensated. SHould those be considered as separate categories? Publisher backed blogs vs individual/group sponsored blogs?
Anyways, great job on LeaderTalk, Scott!
Congratulations, and well deserved 😉
