A Year of Reading x 6

Tomorrow is our blogiversary.

We've been at this for six years.

In the past, we've done some pretty amazing blogiversary posts: 2007, 2008 2008 2008 2008, 2009 2009 2009, 2010, 2011.

This year, we almost forgot to celebrate.

Franki's getting ready for the Mentor Texts in the Digital Writing Workshop series (with Bill Bass, Katie DiCesare, Troy Hicks, Kevin Hodgson, and Tony Keefer), Mary Lee's getting ready to start round two Cybils Poetry judging (with Julie Larios, Diane Mayr, Laura Purdie Salas, and Andi Sibley), and both Franki and Mary Lee have had recent guest posts at the Nerdy Book Club blog.

Read that last sentence one more time.

There you have it, in a nutshell, in a single Polaroid of words, where we are in the evolution of this perpetual Year of Reading: we have branched out in different directions, and yet we both remain united in our passion for children's books and reading and teaching.


  1. Happy New Year! I'm happy to be judging the Cybils along with Mary Lee. It should be fun!

  2. Congratulations on your blogiversary! You are both in the thick of things. May you champion and be inspired by your passions for many more years.

  3. Okay, I had to scroll back because I remember it had been your blogiversary but wanted to Officially Acknowledge it with Congratulations.

    Whew, I feel better now.
