Do u remember how u saw Blogs, Twitter, or Facebook before u blogged, tweeted, or booked your face ? (bad puns = my speciality)
Offer yourself a 30-second pause, sit back and just recall for a second
How have things changed ? Has it been a good ride ?
For me, I never thought of blogging or tweeting because I thought it was all about moi moi moi and the restaurant I’m eating at tonight. Since January of this year, I’ve found it to be JUST the opposite, at least with the folks I share with. My plunge into social media has been about community and sharing… sharing in an way I could have only dreamed about before.
Hence, a month after diving into the blogging world, I’d like to dedicate this blog post to you, my blogosphere community. I’ve followed many of your blogs for some time now, and have loved the exchange. Now, you’ve joined me on a few journées in language, and, for me, that is the great power of the PLN— companionship.(and the etymology of that word is “those with whom you eat le pain… bread”)
I’d like to celebrate the blog’s month birthday with a lil’ challenge and prize.
Among the 2000 visitors this past month, some chose to share comments, and as another blogger said in the last entry on eltchat dogme flies:
“we bloggers ♥ that! “
So, for those très très appreciated commenting VIPS below, I’d like to to put a bottle of french wine up for grabs. (burgundy or bordeaux, your choice and my finest recommendation)

However, it’s no fun to just give stuff away, so we need a bit of a challenge…
The spoils will go to the FIRST person to guess the SPECIFIC region in the world where this photo was taken. Hint… it wasn’t in Paris.
If no one’s guessed by tomorrow, then I’ll give ya’ll a better hint, and the game’ll continue. :)
BTW… if you’re not following the folks mentioned above, they are the best of the best. Plus, their blogs or websites are wonderful, so they all deserve a bottle of rouge, right ! AND… if you didn’t make the VIP list this time… I promise there is more fun to ensue very very soon, and it’s like we tell our students—
“participation is very very important”, so let us hear ya’ll next time
LOL n cheers, brad
