The Edublog Awards 2005!!!

Josie has been kind enough to take over the edublog awards this year and has gone into overdrive with the nominations, these are the categories:

* Most innovative edublogging project, service or programme
* Best newcomer
* Most influential post, resource or presentation
* Best designed/most beautiful edublog
* Best library/librarian blog
* Best teacher blog
* Best audio and/or visual blog
* Best example/ case study of use of weblogs within teaching and learning
* Best group blog
* Best individual blog

There will also be a Best of the Best award, which will be open to all winners of the 2005 Edublog Award Categories.

Nominations are not to be public this year, you’ve got to be an edublogger (in the first place, so be sure to include your edublogs.org url when you nominate) and you’ve got to email: 2005awards@googlemail.com … so get cracking, you’ve not got long.

You can find out more about the nominations process here and if there ‘aint a heck of a lot of edublogs.org blogs up for best newcomer then I’ll come after y’all with a mallet :D

Say it loud and say it proud, edublog strip at the top?

I’ve been thinking how great it is to have over 700 edublogs going and still be into our first month and about how we can get even more up in the next. Basically how can we ‘badge’ an edublog as an edublog and how can we best ‘spread the word’?

The way I though would be simplest woudl be to put a small strip at the top of each blog as Weblogs Inc do (check it out). I figured this would also be a great way to promote community stuff, feature blogs etc. (no advertising though as promised!)

Let me know what you think? Would thsi be cool with you or just plain annoying? Can you think of any better approaches (given that the editable themes thing hasn’t quite come along yet?)

Provide some details for your blog
No stress, you can always change this later on.
