There are dozens of excellent educational blogs. The choices listed here were simply the top vote getters in our annual Readers' Survey.

What is "The Best"?

I agree with Diane. How can the choices for "Best Blog for Educators" be narrowed down to three, one of which, as others have pointed out, is a blogging platform?

As much as I admire Vicki's and David's work, there are many other excellent blogs being written by and for educators that should be considered among the "best".

Sorry -- but though I respect educational bloggers as a whole -- I think Edutopia missed a great opportunity to showcase a great many EXCELLENT educational bloggers when you limited it to just 3 choices.

It would be interesting to see your disclosure on how you came up with these 3 options? What was the criteria? How many did you start with -- and how did you narrow it down?

And not just this section -- but all the other voting areas as well.

Again, I respect all the educational bloggers -- I think you missed the mark BIG TIME on this one.

I wished you had expanded the list.

I would like to see choices from real certified classroom teachers (people on the front line)at various levels, elem, middle and hs. I enjoy the two personal blogs mentioned but feel they only scratch the surface. Who can take me inside their public school classroom?

Clarification -- Two of these are individual blogs, but Edublogs is a blogging platform. It doesn't really seem like a fair vote. Perhaps the original question could have been written more clearly so people knew what you were asking.

If the responses had been collected by someone who actually reads educational blogs, I'm sure you would have realized that Dangerously Irrelevant isn't a comment but the name of an excellent blog by Scott McLeod.

In the future, I hope you'll learn from these errors and have someone who actively participates in the edublogging community help you both write and code your survey questions. I'm sure you would have no problem finding volunteers to help you.

How can you choose only 3 blogs for us to consider, from the hundreds of outstanding possibilities?

Couldn't we at least have some sub-genres: Best Teacher Blog, Best Tech in the Classroom Blog, Best School Administrator or Librarian or IT Blog?

I have learned a great deal from coolcatteacher's blog. The other two are good also, but I like coolcat because she shares what her students are doing.

Dangerously Irrelevant
(you know, one of your 'Edublogs We Love' from 2007!)

Also, did you mean http://edu.blogs.com rather than Edublogs (the blogging service)?

I'll bet you a wallaby that your reference to "Edublogs" was really supposed to be to Sue Waters' excellent The Edublogger.

Edublogs is a company that hosts blogs, not a blog itself.
