Best of luck to all bloggers out there. Who knows, I might even get a nomination, become a finalist and maybe even a winner of one category, or maybe…maybe….I might win in a few categories. Then I could spruce up my teacher cv and boast to the bloggershpere that Moloney King Is A WINNER……….
Phew! Long breath….wow I just realised that I like having stamps of approval. Man, I am such a nerd……nominate me?!?!
EDIT: I know I should stick to one area on my blog but so far…I haven’t! I blog about teaching, creative writing, the arts, popculture and technology. So my query would be what category would I fit into if people were nice enough to nominate me?
Mhhhhh I suppose I could slot into Best Technology, Best Newcomer, Best Personal Blog, Best Science/Education Blog, Best Blog Post and or Best Blog.
But what do I know?
