Edublogs is seeking nominations from the blogosphere for their annual “Eddies.” I really wasn’t sure I could make many recommendations, but I opened my Google Reader today, clicked manage, and found a nomination for almost each category. Some of my nominations may not be well known, but others are probably too popular. So popular in fact, they may have been previously nominated or even named a winner before for an Eddie. Those that are not so well known I also nominate for a DABA Award created by Scott Mcloud. I hope I have accurately categorized the blogs I have nominated. I couldn’t pick a “most influential” blog post. There were far too many to narrow that one down.
So here are my nominations. If you are a feed reader, try these out in your aggregator if they are not already there:
1. Best individual blog Ideas and Thoughts from an EdTech
2. Best group blog Leader Talk
3. Best new blog Books, Bytes, & Grocery Store Feet
4. Best resource sharing blog Teach42
5. Most influential blog post ????
6. Best teacher blog Lisa’s Lingo
7. Best librarian / library blog The Blue Skunk Blog
8. Best educational tech support blog LifeHacker
9. Best elearning / corporate education blog K12 Online Conference 2008
10. Best educational use of audi0 Bit by Bit
11. Best educational use of video / visual The Common Craft Show

13. Best educational use of a social networking service Classroom 2.0
14. Best educational use of a virtual world Discovery Education Network Second Life
15. Best class blog Remote Access

Okay–I’ve enjoyed reading other nominations, and now I sit back and wait to see who makes the final nomination list. Best of luck to everyone! You are all winners in my book.
