Nominations Now Open for the 2011 Edublog Awards

Each of the last three years I have had the honor of receiving the Edublog Award for Best Resource Sharing Blog. For that, I can't thank all of you enough. Nominations for the 2011 Edublog Awards are now being accepted. The complete directions for nominating your favorite blogs, Tweeters, blog posts, podcasts, and wikis are available here. In short, to nominate you need to write out your list of nominations (you cannot nominate yourself), post it publicly (your blog, Google+, etc), and share the link to your nominations on the Edublogs Awards website. You can make nominations in one or all of the categories. I will be making my nominations later this week.
