2009 Edublogs Nominations

There’s a useful word in Japanese: giri-giri. The closest English translation is probably cutting it close or by skin of your teeth, as in “I”m submitting my nominations for the Edublogs Awards giri-giri!”

What I was most amazed at when I started to try and limit my choices to one or two per category was just how many amazing people I’ve met in the last year, and how much I’ve learned from them. Thank you all!
