I have been so excited to have our first Nerdy contest! I wanted us to reach 50 followers, and now we're almost at 70. Woohoo! That may sound small to some people, but that's pretty HUGE for us :)
There has been a lot of positive response to our blog posts, so thank you to everyone who became a follower and commented! It's nice to have interaction when you blog, so we appreciate everyone who took the time to read our posts and leave us feedback.
There were 30 total comments from followers (old and new!) on various posts. I kept a spreadsheet of everyone who commented in the time order in which the comments were published. I'm sure there's an easier way to do it, but this worked for me this time. (Veteran bloggers, if you use a different method, would you please let me know?)
Then I used Random.org to randomly select a winner. Here's what the random number generator... um... generated...
And the lucky number 8 commenter was.... (drumroll please..........)
Linda Dunnavant from Tales of a Fifth Grade Teacher! Congrats, Linda!
Again, thank you to everyone who commented. Each time my email made a little BING! sound with a comment, it just made my day :)
We start back to school soon; teachers officially report back to our classrooms on August 6th, but I would love to be back in my room a little sooner to set up the furniture. Anybody out there starting sooner than that? If you start later, how late? I'd love to hear from you!
