2012 Bloggy Best and Brightest Linky
Welcome to my 2012's Blog Best and Brightest linky party! Here you can link up to share some of your blog's best and brightest moments of the past year, as well as brag about other bloggers too! I'm really leaving it up to you as to what you share, as long as it's something you have shared on your blog and are proud of from the past year.
The only rules are... it needs to be a new post that tells about your favorite posts, products, and fellow bloggers from the year! You can certainly link up all of your favorite posts... but put them in a new blog post. Please only link up once per blog! I don't want the linky to be cluttered with many links from one blog! And last... if you link up, please remember to grab the button above and also link back to this post. Jen at Finally in First has some great Linky Party etiquette if you'd like to know more about what you should do!
Enough with the rules and regulations...
So... my blog's best and brightest...
One of the BEST things I did this year was learn about TpT! I didn't know it existed until late in 2011 and, finally in March of this year, I took the plunge and opened up a shop! It has been a huge blessing to me and my husband and is going to allow us to start perusing our goal of adopting a baby! Hopefully I'll be able to add that to my list of "BESTS" for 2013!
The post that I love the BEST from this year is when I shared the "Back to Back" game video. Not only do I love the two little boys in the video, T and C, but I LOVE "Back to Back"! If you listen to it, never mind my gum chanking. Gross and sorry!
My most popular post this year is my collaborative First Day Handbook that ya'll contributed to... it has over 20,000 views! You can check it out by clicking the pic below.
The BEST news I shared on my blog this year was my new job. I went from teaching a 1st/2nd grade split class to teaching 3rd grade English Language Arts. Though I miss my friends and kiddos at my old school, I am so happy in my new position and love my new friends, kiddos, and administration so much!
The BEST product I created and blogged about this year is my Reading Comprehension Flippy Books. I love them and they are one of my top sellers!
And the BEST freebie I shared this year... in my humble opinion... is the colorful "Show Me the Number" silent management system set. All of the 3rd grades in my building use it and I LOVE it!

So... there you go! I hope you'll link up and share your BEST and BRIGHTEST bloggy moments from 2012!
