Today I want to do a quick post to nominate a friend of mine, Michelle Moloney King, for an Edublog award. Those of you who follow Michelle on Twitter (@moloneyking) or who read her blog will know what a fantastic person Michelle is. Her blog is a mix of personal thoughts and reflections as well as links and tutorials on cutting edge social media tools that she shares with everyone and that have made a huge difference to bloggers like me. It’s for this reason that my first nomination for Michelle is in the “Best Ed Tech/Resource sharing blog” category.
The second nomination is a more personal one. I knew Michelle on Twitter and was reading her blog for months before I knew she was dyslexic. She had tried to not make that an issue but eventually felt she had to talk about it. She wrote a blog post about it called “Thinking outside the box“. I thought then – and still do – that it was incredibly brave thing to do to try and teach and write blogs and study, all while saying nothing about her dyslexia. For this reason, my second nomination for Michelle is in the “Most influential blog post” category.
