Eric Turner, who writes Secondhand Thoughts, has begun a unique tradition as a highlighter of promising nascent education blogs from the point of view of a seasoned, highly trained soldier who is on his way to becoming a great history teacher.
Because I’m an inherently modest guy, I put Eric’s “badge” down near the bottom of my sidebar, just above my profile.
Now that I’ve read Matthew Tabor’s appreciation post and how Eric’s criteria parallel Matthew’s blog blueprint, I feel that I have done Eric a disservice, and I am forthwith moving my Wednesday Website Award to the top of my sidebar where it belongs, to show my appreciation for him and his work.
I owe the same kind of apology and thanks to Scott McLeod who writes Dangerously Irrelevant, and who appreciates reading coherent comments on blog posts and found a way to give an “attaboy” or “attagirl” to the blogger who holds up his or her end of a conversation.
Again, thank you Eric and Scott!
BTW, Eric, Matthew, and Scott can be found daily on my blogroll.
