I am so glad I made the jump to book blogging. I love talking about books and being part of an amazing online community that celebrates and cherishes books and literacy. My goal is to share some insight into using books as mentor texts but I learn from amazing educators, parents, librarians - friends - who share their perspectives on books with me every day. Sometimes keeping up with the blog isn't always easy - it's a lot of work! But having Kellee to blog with me has been a major relief. She puts in a lot of work so we have content posted everyday. The best part of blogging with a partner is that I have Kellee to bounce ideas off of and Kellee to work with me to try new ideas and to hold myself to high expectations. She also keeps me organized - she's very detail-oriented whereas I am very just-do-it.
