A Blog I Admire

Yay! But also, boo. It's the last day of Clutter Free Classroom's linky party. Today's prompt is to write a letter to the owner of a blog you admire. Well, I think responding to this post is just... peachy! Hehe!

Keen On Kindergarten

One of my favorite blogs is Meredith's Keen on Kindergarten. As always, I'm never really sure how I find ya'll, but somehow I made it to her page in June. Right away I fell in love with her blog template. It is fun, simple, and neat! When I was working on my own template I was striving for the same feel. I use Google Reader and whenever I see Keen on Kindergarten pop up as an unread item I often will leave Reader just so I can look at her blog again.

Let's begin!

Dear Meredith,
If you peek at the above, I admire your blog very much. I appreciate that you share yourself with the blogging world and enjoy reading your posts. So imagine my great joy when you became one of MY followers yesterday- and I just started on Monday! Thank you for taking the time to visit my page.

The thing I like most about your posts is your well-organized writing, clever ideas, and fun freebies. I have to admit that when I was in Target and bought 4 packs of those magnetic numbers, I turned to the person next to me, exclaiming, "now I can use Keen on Kindergarten's cute little mat!" She had no idea what I was talking about.

Your generosity and positive attitude are truly appreciated.

Cheerfully yours,

PS- What's your favorite Henkes' mouse book? :)

I love both yours and Meredith's blog designs!! I wish I had the capabilities to make my own but I would not even know where to start...

Marvelous Multiagers!

You just made my day! That has got to be one of the nicest letters anyone has ever written to me! I am so honored that you chose me to write to! When I started my blog last month I wondered if anyone would ever even read it! Seriously! But it has just been the best experience. I can't believe how many wonderful teachers I've gotten to know through my blog-kindergarten teachers are truly the nicest people. I'm so glad that you enjoy my posts and the games I create-it is motivating me to do more! You are doing an awesome job with your blog too-keep it up!

P.S. How can I pick just one favorite Kevin Henkes book? I love them all! Ok, maybe Chrysanthemum...

Nicole and Jill,
The wonderful Leslie at KindergartenWorks designed my blog-and I am so lucky she did. I love the design too! I WISH I new anything about blog design, but I don't...I am terrible with technology and it was a big step for me just learning how to put links and google docs into my posts! I wish there was a class on blogging for teachers...right now I just spend all my time reading the tutorials posted on Ladybug's blog.
