Very Important Blogger Stuff

Please indulge me for just a moment and allow me to pretend that I am a VIB (Very Important Blogger).

This past week or so I’ve had a request to review a book for free, the chance to get some free rock climbing stuff (yeah, as if I can get my backside up a mountain side) in exchange for embedding some advertisement hoopdedo on my blog, and, of course, my personal favorite–you’re a winner on the big Google 500 Thousand British Pounds give away (as if I know how much that is).

But I am somewhat excited about being listed in the… could we pah-leese have little drum roll here…in the Number 11 spot of the “100 Most Inspiring and Innovative Blogs for Educators.” Now if I were a cynic, I would believe that the site that posted this list was appealing to my ego (which we’ve already established is more or less the size of a barn) and was hoping that I was vain enough to mention the list and post the link.

So let’s go over this again…Hmmm…If ego is to barn as vain is to post, then yes siree, Missy, count me in. I’m there. I did it. Go ahead and zip on over there and check out the other blogs. You might find some of them interesting.

In the meantime, maybe I should contact that Newton Brown guy at Google and see about those 500,000 pounds.

As if.

Yeah… if life were only that way… I bet that cash is in those banks those Nigerians are always talking about ;-)

Glad to see some of my favorite blogs on the list with me. I made it to #29.

Carol,

I've been enjoying reading you blogs this year--you are fabulous! Where do you find the time to advise student pubs and write all of this funny, funny stuff?!

Thanks for such kind words! I'm so glad someone else--besides me--thinks I'm funny… If I don't laugh at myself, I think I'd go crazy. OK crazier!

Congrats to you for almost cracking the Top 10! Of course I shouldn't talk, since I didn't crack the list at all...BTW, I AM, however, reviewing a book (for free) in tomorrow's post. Well, I got a free book, so that's something. And it's by Mr. Teacher...what a great read!

If you have time to break away from your celebrity, please check out Sx3. A Big Fish Tale, if I ever saw one!
