Happy Bloggiversary to Me

Tomorrow, July 4th is my one year bloggiversary, one year since my first post.  (printables from Fountas and Pinnell - still an incredibly popular post!)  A year, already?!?  O-mi-gosh!  I started this blog hoping that it would help me have an online place to organize resources.  Over the past year, this little blog has benefited me tremendously, in ways I did not anticipate:
  • My hubby loves that I have a place to rant pleasantly discuss the ins and outs of classroom teaching;
  • I've made so many new bloggy buddies {I'm hoping to meet more of you in person at meet-ups!};
  • I've become more technologically savvy capable of following the directions I continually Google about how to disable/enable different blog features;
  • I took the plunge and opened my online stores, helping bring a bit of needed income into our home;
  • I feel like I'm contributing to the self-paced professional development of others, by sharing some of my Literacy resources.  {This is what I miss most from Literacy Coaching!}  Really, shouldn't we be getting continuing ed credits?!?
I wanted to thank all of you, who have been reading all year or who found me today, for allowing me to be a part of your life.  You are all truly appreciated - if y'all weren't sharing all those great resources, I wouldn't have had time to be a wife, a mom, *and* a teacher!  


If you have a blog, please link it up on my "Blogs I Love" page!  I'd love the opportunity to share the bloggy love by helping others find your amazing resources.  :)  {The fact that it will help me stay organized is just a bonus!!}

To thank you all, I've called on some a-maz-ing blogging ladies who generously agreed to help me with A Bloggiversary Giveaway!  
{I even made a button, using The 3AM Teacher's border - so cute!!}  Check out the blogs and stores below to learn more about their amazing resources, then use Rafflecopter to enter to win a total of 37 prizes!  By the way, make sure you actually follow the bloggity blogs - I teach, so you know I'll check behind you to make sure you followed the directions...  Also, they are all full of fabulous ideas.  May the odds be ever in your favor!  :)
