Okay, I have a confession to make. And I'm a teeny tiny bit embarrassed. Deep breath. Or as we say in my school where we teach the Second Step program, "Smell the Soup." Then you blow on it to cool it down. That's a deep calming breath in and then a deep breath out. Believe me, I have stopped my whole class and told them that on the count of three, we're smelling the soup. It works really well for students who may be having conflicts with others and they're agitated or upset or crying or whatever.
Oh, look, I'm avoiding my confession. :)
Allllll rigggggghhht. So here's the deal. I follow many, many, many blogs. I love it. If someone new comments on my blog, and if they have a blog, I go over there and follow them. My problem (my confession) is that I have no idea how to manage all of the blogs I'm following. And I know that several of you have talked about your Google Reader. Do I have a google reader of my own? I logged on but it says I'm only following 14 blogs. Ha! That's a laugh. Which leads me to believe that my reader is a little bit lazy or something. I used to bookmark my blogs but I wasn't consistent. NOW I'm following blogs by email which I think is the coolest thing. I'm alerted when there is a new post so it's super convenient and I am always happy to receive THAT email. I have joined some blogs that I want to go back to but I have no idea how I got there in the first place! I may have been on so-and-so's blog, clicked a link that took me to another's, and so on and so forth. It's like I need a GPS for my blog hopping. :)
Can someone please help me figure this out? I would be so grateful!!! I have a freebie for you, too. I shared a short vowel cut and paste with you HERE and now you can download the next one HERE.
