Life in the Library Blog Honored

I was so surprised today to find out I had been nominated for the Lovely Blog Award. I feel honored and blessed to be recognized by another librarian in our profession. I want to thank Jo from The Book Bug for the nomination. She has a wonderful page with some awesome ideas!

So, here are the rules for the One Lovely Blog Award:
1)  Link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2)  Follow the person who sent it to you.
3)  Pass the award onto other bloggers.

It was hard to choose from so many wonderful blogs out there, but I gave it my best shot. 🙂

I enjoyed the Bulloch County Technology Day held on January 4th at Southeast Bulloch High School and learned about so many great resources. Over 35 different sessions were held on topics such as podcasting, blogging, file management, computer maintenance, free educational software online, Photo Story 3, and Glogster. I taught the classes on What’s the Big Deal About Blogs? and Book Trailers: Not Your Typical Book Report.  I attended sessions on digital photo editing with GIMP, and using FLIP video cameras with Windows Movie Maker. Resources for the sessions can be found on our school’s Homer server in the Techday directory and RESA’s ETC page. Thanks so much to our county’s technology team for putting together such a great opportunity for faculty.
