New ME Bloggers added, Midway Through March 2008
We’re almost through the month of March and I thought I would post the list of new ME Bloggers that have joined our campaign since the completed February listwas published. We’ve been in a little bit of a lull with the campaign and we need your help to continue to spread the word about our very IMPORTANT campaign to get the word out about our discipline and profession though blogging.
To help in that regard, I’ve recently created a PDF of a Call For Music Education Bloggers. Please post, re-post, send out newsletters, e-mails, etc. anyway possible. If you have an MEA site, please post there as well (Speaking of, I will post this on the MENC technology boards soon!).
This is a busy time of the year for us as directors, getting ready for concerts, Spring fever is in the air, and the students are antsy, wanting to be outside. If you can find some time, don’t forget to comment or post on one of our ME blogger’s sites, there has been a lot of great information generated from our loosely affiliated group of EXPERT bloggers lately.
Please welcome the latest ME bloggers:
31. Geejay Arrioloa and Jeffrey Langlois -Music Anthology
32. Michael Compton -Southern Iowa Music Education Network
33. Jonathan Filbert -Sound On ~Music and Music Education
34. Eric Wright- QACHS’s Band Blog
35. Alison Hulihan- Marching Music
