I'm Sorry... And Crazy

So, my blog isn't private any more.  That lasted a long time.

I am SO sorry for all the drama - really - but, ya'll, I just can't do it.  I had such an overwhelming response to my post yesterday and have been getting emails from you guys ALL day.  Everything was fine and good until I realized that Blogger would only let me have 100 private readers - how's a girl to choose? Honestly, I was way more stressed about not being able to blog and keep up this great community than I really was about my students reading.

I'm probably crazy, but... I'm going to risk it. 

So, consider that a false alarm.  I guess the system is still set-up if I ever want/need to go back... But, I'm here to stay for a little bit.  

And, dear students, if you are reading this... I'm glad you are so interested in my life.  I think there are probably a lot more interesting blogs out there for you to read (and it's a little weird that you even care about what your teacher is doing outside of school), but... at least you are reading something - isn't that the goal of most English teachers anyway?  So, you aren't being a rebel.  I know you are out there.  Be good.  Finish your exam study guides for tomorrow.

  1. Glad your back! I love reading your blog! Sometimes I wonder if I'm going to have to make my blog private when I start teaching? I'm not sure what I will do...

  2. hahaha... you crack me up. mostly because i can hear you in my head saying all of this. just don't post your address or anything. i'm sure it will be fine... and certainly worth the 100+ readers! You are well on your way to being a professional blogger, my friend :-)

  3. Don't you wish you could just block certain people?! Or make it so only people who are currently 'following' can see you

  4. I am not going to lie. I am kind of happy that you decided to stay "live"! Excited to keep reading!

  5. I'm glad you've gone public again, and I think you were definitely right about this just being a temporary phase with your students. They'll be stalking someone else before you know it!

  6. Sweetie... I will help you with the practical things you won't think about when designing your prefect little nest! :)


  7. Maybe you can start a new blog for a while... and then after a month or so go back to this one...that way it's not private and can still follow you there, but your students won't track it??? either way, I'm glad that you're back!

  9. oh my goodness that nursery is adorable! and somehow i have a feeling that your's will be even cuter!

    i'm so glad you're not private anymore, i was worried for a bit!

    ps: i have a blog award for you, if you'd like it, on my page at

  10. I am a new reader and I am glad you are not private! Also I think my comment comes up as noone... does anyone know why/how I can get my name to appear?


Your comments are what makes this thing fun! I LOVE to hear from you and do my best to respond to everyone! THANK YOU!
