I’ve finished up a couple of graphics and badges that can be used for any ME Blogger! I’m pretty excited about them and I think they turned out pretty well (pat, pat!). :). I’m going to create a couple different ones in the time to come as well.
Here’s the very simple rules for using the ME Blogger Badges:
Your blog must deal with music education, and/or music education technology
You agree to openly share your blog information with others and be part of a global conversation with others about our field (comment on others blogs once in a while!!!)
You keep the badge the same as I have them, with the exception that you may re-size them to any size you would like and you may change the transparent color if need be.
You don’t have to, but… I would appreciate it if you linked the picture (anchor) it back to our 100 ME blogger campaign so we can get other music educators interested it what we are doing. Use this link as the anchor point:
You can use this logo on any literature/paper/materials that you want, so long as you are a ME blogger!
If you don’t follow these simple rules, you may not use the badges.. :(
Here are the links:
JPG and PNG formats can be found here:
PNG formats are transparent.
Little ME Badge:
Right-Click the above and SAVE AS….
Please remember that to be an official ME blogger, not only do you need to blog about Music Education you need to join in the conversation with others by listing sites like mustech.net and others in your blogroll and commenting on other music educators sites every so often! Visit my blogroll in the left sidebar for an example, and some great bloggers!
I will be posting the list of old and NEW ME bloggers very soon!!! Stay tuned!
