Newbie Bloggers Blog Hop



 I am trying this Blog Hop/Linky thing again. I think I am getting the hang of it... almost.



Since I am new to blogging, this seems like a good place for me to hop. I am finding lots of other great blogs to check out. I hope you find some, too.

For this blog hop, this is what is being shared:

1. What state are you in? I am in California.
2. What is your current teaching position? I teach 3rd grade.
3. What is your teaching experience? I have been teaching for 17 years. I have taught 2nd grade for 15 years and 3rd for 2 with some years of 2/3 combos mixed in for good measure.
4. How long have you been blogging? I started blogging very recently... I thought about it in April and finally got serious last week.

Well, here goes... the last one I tried, my button didn't show, so we shall see if it works this time. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

    1. Hi Heather!

      Thanks. I am so happy with my blog. I can't take the credit though. Christi Fultz at designbychristi.blogspot.com designed it for me. I'm not sure what font that is, but I'll try to find out.

      Can't wait to check out your blog, too.

    2. Hi Heather!

      I asked Christi what font that is and she said it is called Only Hope and it is FREE. You can get it on www.dafont.com.
      Enjoy!

  4. Julie,
    Your blog is absolutely adorable! I'm an owl lover as well. Welcome to the blogging world. I can sympathize with you about how overwhelming it can all be at first. I've been blogging since the spring, but I only just recently learned how to participate in a linky party, lol! I teach 3rd grade as well and am your newest follower! :)

    1. Thanks Megan!

      The whole owl thing started with a painting my friend did for me. I have it hanging in my classroom. I will have to do a blog post on it. :)
