I got my first blog award!!
The Lemonade Award
Now I have a spot on the right panel of my blog to house blog awards... I'm so excited. I think blog awards are so cute. It's the epitome of why I love blogging-- nice people going out and doing nice things for bloggers who are just trying to put their ideas/stories out there. Thanks again, Ace!!!!!!!!
So... if someone asks you if you twitter, they aren't asking anything dirty. I've actually been avoiding twitter! The premise-- a site where you can post little updates on your life all day long-- sounded a little like internet stalking to me. But it's actually really fun AND there are lots of fun people on twitter! And now I'm twittering, too. See the twitter update box on the side of my blog? Fancy...
Knitting Knoobie is on there as well, AND she sent me this really cool Web site: wefollow.com. It allows you to search twitter for others who are similar to you! You can search for bloggers, knitters, cooks, etc. who are on twitter... I was very excited about this site.
Education: New Blog Section
That's me! SUPER TUTOR! Heh...
Got kids? Know kids? Like/Care about education? Then at least read this part: My two favorite education-related Web sites. I use these for tutoring and nannying all the time!
1. Find a book: Teacher Book Wizard
- You can search by reading level (ex. 4th grade), genre (ex. historical fiction), or search for "similar books" (ex. type in Harry Potter and check what grade level you want, and it will find a different but similar book for you!)
- You can create book lists and share them with others!
- Perfect for that nephew who loves to read-- you weren't sure what book to get him? Next time you see him just ask what his favorite book is and try that site!
- WARNING: not the most well-designed site
- BUT! Games of every type-- search by grade level or search by subject
- I found a decimal game where the superhero shoots down decimals that are equivalent to the evil fraction... PERFECT incentive for a kid to learn new math skills.
Hope you're all having a great Monday! Can't wait to share some new recipes in the next post, and review StephChow's Bread-- hint hint: it's definitely almost all gone :)
-Your now-twittering, award-winning,
