Top Education Blog: This Blog Gets More Honors
Image via Wikipedia
This blog continues to rack up the awards. We have won some impressive honors. In 2008 we won first place in the education blog category of the Bloggers Choice Awards. We have won the prestigious Blog of the Day award. In February of this year, we were listed on another list of top blogs: The Fifty Best Blogs For Special Needs Teachers. We are also listed on the blogrolls of a number of highly respected blogs. And we are found on some amazing tweet lists and facebook pages.
This week we were named one of the Top Education Blogs by Blog Front. You can see our listing and those of the other top education blogs here.
We like the recognition; it is nice to be liked!
But the best thing about these awards is that they help us to get known. The goal of this blog is to provide information and to make available resources about special education law and policy to any interested stakeholders. Our regular readers include such diverse folks as: special education teachers, parents, special ed directors, lawyers for parents, principals, advocates, school psychologists, lawyers for school districts, general education teachers, law professors, dispute resolution coordinators, hearing officers, speech language pathologists, mediators, occupational therapists, assistive technology providers, hearing officers, state complaint investigators, advocacy group members, school disciplinarians, monitors, regulators, professors of education, students, adults with disabilities, paraprofessionals, other administrators, behavior specialists, my friends, other bloggers and an assortment of other folks.
These awards and honors help us reach new readers. That is always good. Thanks you for reading these posts and for taking the free subscriptions. With our growing numbers comes increasing credibility. Thanks everybody.
