1M Views: THANK YOU!

Hello friends,

On March 30, 2011 I embarked on this journey to start chronicling my trials, challenges and successes leveraging technology in the classroom. I remember sitting on my bed, laptop glowing, wondering what to name this blog. The Prince song 1999 was stuck in my head so I figured, yeah... why not? As I wrote that first post, I had no idea if I had anything to say or contribute to the conversation, if anyone would read this blog or if I would have time to post.

Now... 158 posts, 600 comments and 3 1/2 years later, I am so glad I took the advice of my good friend Carrie Kamm and started Teaching Like It's 2999. It has been one of the most powerful reflective practices of my career and has led to much constructive feedback, new collaborators and friends and mostly has allowed me to share my students' work and voices. I encourage everyone to start your own blog... even if you think you have nothing to say, or you'll never post... you just never know....

Today this blog hit 1,000,000 views. As a thank you to you -- my readers and friends, I am giving away ten Google Play App Cards with a free copy of the Android versions of Explain Everything, Book Creator and Star Chart Infinite -- three amazing apps that I love using with students.

The first ten readers to fill out this form will get an app card in the mail! Please note, you must have an ANDROID tablet... these apps won't work on an iPad or a phone.

Thanks again for your readership and support. I look forward to more exploring and sharing in the future!

With big smiles and much gratitude,
Jennie :)

  2. Congrats on the milestone! Turns out that blogging is a lot harder than I thought it would be. Well done and staying dedicated and finding the time to help the rest of us learn and grow.

  3. Great encouragement Jennie! I'd love to know how you manage to keep up the blog, do set a certain time to blog? Or certain # of posts per month? Or just wing it?

    1. Eva, I kind of wing it... I aim for 2-3 posts each month but it's more about when I feel like I have something to say. The best part about this is that it's supposed to be about learning and fun... So no rules. :)
