2010 Edublog Awards: It's An Honor Just to be Nominated

I've been nominated for two Edublog Awards. (which makes me openly question the sanity of the judges).

Best Individual and Best School Administrator Blog.

This means a couple of things.

One, I need a new dress (how horrified would I be if someone caught me wearing my 2009 dress at the awards ceremony).

Two, I have to remember to thank my beagle, my agent, and especially my ghostwriter during my acceptance speech. Mainly my beagle, because without him I'm just a creepy guy dragging an empty dog leash down the street.

To be honest, I hope I don't win.


Because if I did I will be under enormous pressure to start producing quality blog posts.

And I have no interest in that.

I like my little world where I quickly slop down my thoughts on things that only interest, bother and bug me.

The expectation of quality is something I don't want to deal with.

Plus, if a school superintendent actually wins an Edublog Award it may very well encourage other superintendents to blog.

And I'm really not interested in that.

Competition wouldn't make me better. It would only make be bitter.

Since July 2007, I have had the superintendent plus sarcasm corner of the interweb all to myself.

And that's the way I like it.

So do me, The Evil Spawn, The Tech Queen, and Buddy the Dog a favor.

Don't vote.

And if you're from Chicago, please remember to not vote several times.

As usual, if you choose to ignore my advice, you can vote HERE for the Best School Administrator Blog. And HERE for the Best Individual Blog. Just make sure it's for someone else
