First, some good news!
We have 49 followers! That's so exciting! We are just ONE away from 50 followers! That feels like a milestone to me, so let's have a giveaway!!! My first one :)
Here's what I'm giving away... a $10 gift certificate for Erin Condren! I L-O-V-E love her stuff! If you read my last blog post, you saw my fabulous teacher planner I got from her website. Check out her website here: Erin Condren Store
You can use it toward the purchase of ANYTHING. You could spring for one of her big ol' planners, or you can get a personalized pack of notepads, or anything between! You choose! (It doesn't have to be a teacher item.)
Here are the rules:
1. Follow this blog (if you haven't already; click on the "Join this Site" under Followers on the right)
2. Leave a comment on ANY of the blog posts
I'll leave it open for a week. On July 23rd, I'll close the contest and randomly select a winner! Remember, you've got to be a follower and leave a NEW comment.
More Good News...
Nerdy, Nerdy, Nerdy has received a few awards over the last several weeks. I just have been so busy I didn't have any time to investigate! I've spent a long time this morning looking at blogs, reading posts, and finding some AMAZING ideas. So now, it's time for me to thank some folks and nominate some other ones!
Most of the awards below require me to nominate 15 other blogs. Since I have 3 awards to nominate for, I'm nominating 5 bloggers for each award. That works out mathematically, right? 15 total bloggers will just have to do for this morning!
The first blogger I'd like to thank is Erica, from Shepherd's Shining Stars, for the One Lovely Blogger Award! I love her blog, and I'm happy to be her follower! I love her ideas and her teaching style, so you need to go follow her blog!
Here are the rules for the One Lovely Blogger Award:
1. Follow the blogger who nominated you
2. Link up to that blogger
3. Pass on to 15 new bloggers (well, I'm doing 5...)
I nominate the following bloggers for this One Lovely Blog Award! Please go check out their blogs and follow them if you haven't already!
Next, I'd like to thank Mrs. Henderson at The Teacher's Workroom for the Versatile Blogger Award! She has so many great ideas, so you better check her out so you can see them for yourself!
Here are the rules for the Versatile Blogger Award:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you
2. Include a link to their blog
3. Include the award image in your post
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself
5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award (like I said, 5...)
6. When nominating, include a link to their blog
7. Let other bloggers know they've been nominated
Here are my 7 Random Facts:
1. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats. The cats are named after Star Wars characters, courtesy of the hubby. (Chewbacca and Jabba)
2. I love Diet Coke. It's an unhealthy addiction, really.
3. I begged my husband to buy me a Bluetooth because I REALLY needed it, but I rarely use it. Whoops.
4. I have reread all the Harry Potter books at least 4 times each, some of them more than that. I'm listening to book one in my car.
5. I wanted to change my name from Dallas to Rainbow Bright when I was four.
6. I drive a minivan. I have one child. He's almost 8.
7. I don't like seafood or seagulls.
These bloggers are so fun to read, so I have nominated them for the Versatile Blogger award. Give these a read, too!
The last blog award Nerdy, Nerdy, Nerdy received was the Liebster Blog Award! A big thanks to Pam at P.J. Dots for the award! She's got a great blog, too, so be sure to hop on over there. This award is for bloggers with under 200 followers, and that suits our little blog perfectly!
Here are the rules for this one:
1. Link back to the person who gave it to you
2. Post the award to your blog
3. Give the award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers (whew! Finally a reasonable number!)
4. Let other bloggers know they have won.
Here are the bloggers I've nominated for this award! I love seeing other bloggers like me, so give them some love too!
