    Thanks Karenne,

    I thought that title might ruffle a few feathers, but it seems to have met with general approval. I'm trying to find a rhythm now, between total inactivity and burnout ; P

    Loved the Melanie Butler piece, by the way. Extremely educational.

    Thank you very much,Karenne.

    I really enjoyed looking through your great list of stuff you wrote and enjoyed reading. The idea for Powerpointing grammar is a great one. I liked your Face on, Face Off posting as well.

    I look forward to looking through some more of your recommended readings. Thank you :)

    Even when I'm not busy, I really appreciate your summaries of good reads--I always miss something.

    When I am busy, I REALLY depend on these lists of highlights!


    Thanks also for including a couple of posts from Teaching Village. I always feel like the student who did something right when I get a nod from another blogger like you :)

    Hey guys, thanks for your thanks! I'm never really sure about doing these and stopped sometime last year cause I wasn't sure if people liked them - but then I found myself hunting through the old ones for an article I wanted to find by another blogger and knew I'd saved it somewhere and then I realized that actually they were useful to me!

    Really glad to hear you enjoy them too!

    Love the new layout! Great stuff! Perhaps you could do a tutorial or two on how to jazz up Blogger blogs?

    February 03, 2010

    On the list of things to do, Carl! ;-) actually planning on running a series of posts on blogging - probably May (have to get MELTA, TESOLSpain and IATEFL out of the way first) - will let you know (it's hard but patience wins out...)

    Thanks Karenne, for this useful and timely update! Can I add that I loved the Melanie BUtler article? Great addition to that series. Sorry I didn't comment on it before, I just saw it now.

    Is hat-tip a Karenne thing or is it a web 2.0 thing that I didn't know about?

    Hi Lindsay,

    I got it from Alex... I think it means "got the information from blah, blah so I'm giving him the acknowledgment for sharing the information, however it wasn't user-generated, he got it from another source but I'm awfully grateful for the tip so I'm tipping my hat his way."
