The Edublog Awards provides opportunity to grow the community of edubloggers and let others know how professionally and personally important they are to us.
It also gives one a chance to update blogrolls.
I couldn’t believe that I had left some of my favourite bloggers of my roll. Apologies…and apologies to any friends, colleagues and bloggers that I leave of this next list.
Here are some of my favourite bloggers and educational thinkers; I read every one (or try) of your posts:
Alice Leung, Ben Jones, Bianca Hewes, Brendan Jones, Chris Betcher, Clarinda Brown, Dean Groom, George Couros, George Siemens, Greg Whitby, Kelli McGraw, Jenny Luca, Jonathan Nalder, John Connell, John Larkin, Judy O’Connell, Julian Ridden, Keith Lyons, Mark Pesce, Martin Pluss, Martin Weller, Michael Wesch, Mitch Squires, Pip Cleaves, Simon Job, Stephen Downes, Steve Collis, Steve Wheeler, Stu Hasic, Tomaz Lasic
I still find it amazing that so many ideas, lives, educational and personal insights are shared by bloggers without them being completely aware of their importance to their readers and colleagues.
Please keep sharing…please keep blogging!
On with the show.

I appreciate the shoutout but like your comment even more ) That would be awesome! Will be back in Australia in July. Hopefully we can meet up then!
A fewi hadn’t been to in a while, now very much a part of my professional learning coming to the close of a tough year.
Troy, it is really useful when the aggregated nomination list appears. I love how there are so many blogs one has never visited to check out, especially the teacher, students and class blogs. BTW as you probably know, I always read your narrative blog posts http://donatingamemory.wordpress.com/ …are you going to start another, PD-style blog in the New Year?
Thanks mate – your endorsements mean a lot to me. Cheers! 🙂
Your recommendations for the eddies are always thoughtful – I consider it very fortunate to have made your list out of all the possile choices! We really do have a wonderfully strong blogging community who share an develop ideas together. I’ve no idea how we managed without ( I CAN remember, but it all seems so long ago and archaic).
Hey Darcy. I appreciate the nomination and the very encouraging comments.
