Pot-O-Gold Blogger Award #11: Two Writing Teachers

Pixel Berry Pie Designs
It's the second Saturday of the month, and that means it's time to award another lucky blogger with the Pot-O-Gold Blogger Award! I created this award for excellent blogs based on interesting and helpful content AND visually appealing and easy-to-navigate design. It's an award that says, "Look at this awesome blog! There's a wealth of information here! If you visit once, you'll want to return again and again." In other words, it's like discovering a pot of gold.

This month's award goes out to Ruth and Stacey at Two Writing Teachers: Teaching Kids. Catching Minds. 565 Miles Apart. They have been blogging about the teaching of writing since 2007. Their blog has had nearly 1.5 million hits to date. Even if you're not a teacher, you'll love their site! Tons of writing lessons about the writing process and more. Very informational and inspirational. Love their quote page, and their Slice of Life Story Challenge. They also co-authored Day by Day, an excellent resource for writing workshops. Congratulations, Ruth and Stacey!

The "Rules:"

  1. Say thank you to the person who gave it to you.
  2. Write a short "thank-you" post (including image of award, link to the giver's blog, and a link to WRITE WILD).
  3. Award four bloggers this award and tell why each is a Pot-O-Gold!
  4. Share four simple things about yourself: 1-a time you had to exercise FAITH, 2-something you HOPE for, 3-something (or someone) you LOVE, and 4-a time when you felt LUCK.
P.S. You can copy and paste the rules in your post. If you receive this award more than once, you may award one blogger instead of four.

Keep on keepin' on...


  1. Awards can be fun, blog hopped over from a recommendation, nice blog!

  2. Hi Christie,

    I hope all is well! I've sent you a few emails without reply, so I'm trying this way in case I have your email address wrong. I just wanted to let you know your pitch went up on Would You Read It as scheduled, and quite a few people have left comments for you (in case you'd like to check out what they had to say.)


  3. Thanks, Pat! Hope to see you around.

    Susanna, Sorry I've been out of touch over the weekend. You do have my e-mail correctly. Thanks for the nudge.


I love hearing from you! Share your thoughts below.
