A Very Bloggy Birthday!

Saaaayyyy WHAT? It's my blog birthday? { I think maybe this is supposed to be called my blog anniversary but birthdays are SO much more fun. And I make the rules here anyway.} A year ago I started this adventure in blog land. It's been quite the year and I'm happy to say I've made it to this milestone.

Birthdays (even the blog kind) are always a time of reflection. Last year I worked a preschool and elementary caseload of 70 kids, worked a few days after school at a clinic and kept up with Speech Room News. I even managed to see friends get hitched, take vacations, be with family and watch plenty of reality television. Many of you ask me how I have time, and honestly I'm not sure! That sounds busy to me too! 

I wanted to take a minute to say THANKS for supporting Speech Room News. Thanks for commenting. Thanks for emailing. Thanks for donating. Thanks for downloading. Thanks for tweeting and pinning. Thanks for following. Thanks for telling your speech friends about it. Thanks for encouraging me to keep it going, even when I would rather just turn on The Big Bang Theory. When I think about the 150,000 hits per month I see in my stats, I am humbled. I know how busy you are. I know how many other websites you could click on. So THANKS for checking in with me. I hope I can keep sharing ideas and helping you stay jazzed about all things speech and language. I know I still have so much to learn in this field, but I firmly believe getting their attention is half the battle. Developing materials and strategies to help them be engaged sets a great foundation for instruction. 

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment below. Let me know what you've enjoyed or what you'd like to see more of. {I REALLY love comments} Here's to another great year :)
