Two Writing Teachers Turns One Today!
One year ago, today, Ruth and I started this blog. For two months we wrote content and tried to finesse it so that it was ready to go “out into the world.” And here we are, one year and over 800 posts later! What a year it’s been.
And yes, I sent a blog birthday card to Ruth on 6/7 (Our blog birthday falls almost smack in the middle of our real birthdays, which makes me chuckle – slightly.) in celebration of this milestone.
I truly feel fortunate to have a co-blogger like Ruth who “gets” my thinking about the teaching of writing and pushes back on it. She has listened to countless diatribes (of mine) about packaged literacy programs, writing prompts, standardized tests, and a whole host of other things over the phone. She is truly the greatest!
If only we weren’t 872 miles apart…
