2 mini blog challenges + “who r u reader” survey results

 

 

Nearly 50 responded to last week’s survey which is awesome.  THANKS!!! If you haven’t I’d still love to hear from you as it’s always fun to know who’s reading.

Results below, but first two “blog challenge” asides as it is my fav cup of tea.

1) PLN inspiration is a post n small challenge of sorts from Phil Wade.  Check it out and see if there’s a blog you’d like to JING about.  I’m twirling my thumbs thinking of whose blog I might introduce (though Phil’s introduced a chain letter effect to it so I might have to wait my turn)… ;-)

2) Larry Ferlazzo gave me a nice tip of the hat last week and launched a challenge on what might this animal say photos.  Here’s my contribution.  Merci 4 the fun idea, Larry.  Great for class giggles and exploring new language!

 

AND without further ado, the survey results:


 

THANKS again… and what do you think that chicken would say? ;-)

    What a great idea, Brad! It’s really interesting to see who the people that pass by your blog are. 

    Keep up the good work, I really enjoy reading what you have to say and it always gets me thinking about one thing or another, which is exactly why I like reading blogs in the first place –> in order to think. Thank you. 

    Have a great day!

    Merci 4 the comment, Jem and it’s so cool to have so many great educators connect here, there and over there.  Couldn’t have imagined this only a few years back (which I know you can identify with).  Best from Paris, -b

    ;-) I like it.  But would almost be better if he were to tell a pirate joke… don’t have one by chance do you, Dave?  ;-)

    I can TOTALLY identify with that. It’s amazing how much I learn, get inspired and find motivation to improve online. I feel sorry for those that aren’t on here, and hope that they will find their way here soon!

    I’d rather say the bird’s singing: I’m sitting high,
                                                                      I’m seeing far.
                                                                      Now I’d like to try
                                                                      Fly to that big farm.
     I would meet my friends
     And invite them all
     To call on my friend
     Sitting there alone.

    Sorry I missed the survey Brad…

    As for question one, ‘why do you come to this blog’…I think that all of the above reasons apply to me.

    I like unique communication styles, ‘Brain & biscuits’…and especially the fact that there is so much substance behind the fun exterior!!

    As for style , I think I mean a kind of right-brain flow that’s easy to digest – some academic blogs are very heavy on the neurons..

  • http://blog.edulang.com/ Brad Patterson

    ;-) Love it… did you just think that up, Alexandra?

  • http://blog.edulang.com/ Brad Patterson

    Yes, I do tend to vulgarize the message here, and that doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate the “heavy on the neurons” too, but I think I want to have as wide of a reading public as possible, so I keep it simple.

    Brain & Biscuits for breakfast this morning.  Thanks Sylvie!!!

  • Sylvie_guinan

    Vulgar is NOT the word. What I meant was that visual & humorous writing styles appeal to me more than encylopedic, retentive jargon, that has little humane element attached.

    I wouldn’t say they’re simple either – there’s always a lot behind the humour. Knowledge should flow not stagnate, so a message can be deep without being heavy.

    Biscuits are certainly preferable to cement;)

    Glad you liked it, Brad.
     Yes,  I like rhyming. 

  • http://blog.edulang.com/ Brad Patterson

    You are 100% right, and I am 100% concerned because it seems my French is seeping into my English after having been here for almost 3 years.  In French if you say “vulgariser” it simply means to make something more readable for the wide public, as in “vulgariser les textes d’Einstein” = making Einstein’s work readable for all.

    Ay yai yai… Greek even sneak into your English?

    And yes, I prefer biscuits over cement! ;-)

    nice! me too ;-)

    Chicken says: I like this egghead! Maybe I’ll hang round and see whether some fine feathered fowl emerges.

  • http://blog.edulang.com/ Brad Patterson

    ;-) That head belongs to a good egg indeed, so i’m not surprised the chicken would say that!

  • Sylvie_guinan

    Yep. I say open and close mikes, lights etc. instead of turn on , turn off…

    As for the chicken..’that was a nice foot massage; now where are my socks’?
