"I [Shelly Terrell] support the Edublog Awards
- Yes, I am supporting this awards system and this is why and some points I like to make for some of you who may criticize/think less of me for this decision…
- Every person, project, and nomination on the Edublog Awards deserves recognition and financial support. I wish I could give it to them. I dare you to mention to me what/who isn’t on that list worthy of recognition.
- Spreading the word worldwide about the great things that are happening in education is a noble and great thing"
