Edublog Award Results 2012

Yesterday, the Edublog Awards were announced and it

was a big

day for the Bulldog Reader Blog!

In the Best Library Blog category,

we were one of the Top 5 Best Library Blogs!


The winning Library Blog is a blog in Bulgaria! How cool is that? I have had fun copying text and inserting it into Google translate in order to read about this Library Blog.

If you are not familiar with Bulgaria, here is a map to show you. Bulgaria is located in southeast Europe. You can see the blue dot in the center of the country. It borders Macedonia on one side. That where some teachers from the Global Forum are located. They are the ones who gave us the drawing of Kid Lit Movies and had the winning Fun, Education, Stop Motion Animation project!

It’s quite an honor to be short-listed with all of these other fabulous teacher librarians! I visit many of them often to get ideas about books and lessons.

The best part of the Edulbog Awards are not really the awards at all. The best part is learning about awesome blogs, wikis, apps and resources available for students and teachers! 

I have made some wonderful friends through Edublogs. I hope we will make some new friends too!

Thank you Edublogs for hosting this annual event and giving us the opportunity to learn from each other!

  1. Dear Mrs Hembree,

    That is awesome that your blog was in the top five! I bet next year you will win the top spot. I think it’s wonderful that a blog from Bulgaria won it just proves the power of blogging.

    I have won quite a few awards while working many years ago. Still to this day I am very proud of those awards.

    I would love to visit Bulgaria it would be so very interesting.

    Now as for blogs which I just love to visit they are your blog, Mrs Yollis, 4KM, 4JK, Miriam’s and Sahara’s, BB’s and Mrs Lynch. These blogs are my all time favourite blogs Mrs Hembree.

    From your number 1# fan down under,
    AA 🙂

    • Dear AA,
      You liked all the blogs I liked. I voted and voted for BB and so did many of us here. I think she may have been disappointed in the results. She was top in my book.

      Enyour your long summer vacation. I bet it’s quite warm now. It’s pouring outside here, and snow in the mountains. We were supposed to go skiing today but the roads may be too bad to get there.
      Hi to BB!
      From, Mrs. Hembree

  2. Mrs. Hembree,

    We checked out the other top five blogs and agree that The Bulldog Readers are in fine company…
    Thank you for exposing us to so many great things,
    Judy and Josa
    P.S. We voted for BB too as we enjoy her blog very much.

  3. Dear Mrs. Hembree and the Bulldog Readers,

    A hearty congratulations to you all for your achievement! You are a real role model for other schools as you forge the way for a true 21st century library.

    Thank you, too, for the information about Bulgaria! Even in a thank you post, you provide a learning opportunity! Love it!

    Looking forward to another great year learning with you!

    Your friend,
    Mrs. Y♥llis

    • Dear Mrs. Yollis,

      Thank you for your kind comment. I love learning with all of our blogging friends.

      I have a new post that may help you and your students at this time. Sometimes reading helps us with situations we don’t understand. Here is the direct link.

      Your librarian friend,
      Mrs. Hembree

  4. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    I think that this is a fabulous blog. Most of the books you have are book that were my favorite when I was younger. I would like to add my favorite book when I was little “Red Fish Blue Fish One fish Two Fish” by Dr. Seuss.

    • Dear Bernadette,
      Red Fish Blue Fish is an excellent choice! I like the one too. Plus, I love Go, Dog, Go! Do you like that one?

      Enjoy your vacation and I hope you read a book!
      Mrs. Hembree
