Blog Hop!?!

 Talk about jumping right in.  As part of my goal for this blog, I've tried to be a more social blogger, mainly through reading and commenting on other people's Road Trip Wednesday posts until grading or sleep demand attention.  This is something new I'm trying--and the volume is potentially much higher.  I'm planning to spend the weekend intermittently checking out the blogs on the blog hop list, even though I am a little overwhelmed by what seems like the internet version of going out to a crowded club, when my speed is really throwing a Mad Men theme party in my apartment for like ten people.

Here's to new things!

Three blogs I enjoy: 

Obviously, YA Highway because of Road Trip Wednesdays, and their excellent Field Trip Friday literary news roundup.

I'm really excited about YA Confidential--I always wonder if my students would agree with their "spies".

And, for good measure--Lois Lowry's blog!  I was so thrilled to find it and it's very chatty and occasionally contains really tantalizing information about her new books.


  1. Hi Mrs. S. I'm here as the co-host from the Pay It Forward blogfest. Thanks so much for signing up.

    And I wasn't following your blog until just now, so the fest is working!

  2. Thanks for the recommendations. I'm a new follower here too. :) Have a great weekend!


Thanks for coming by! Please chime in!
