Diapers and Dragons

In Case You Hadn't Noticed...

There's something a bit new about Diapers and Dragons today! I cannot thank Judith Shakespeare of Judith Shakes Designs enough for her fabulous new design. She's been working with me very patiently for about two months now, and she's finally tweaked and loaded it up, to my tremendous delight.

You may notice on the right side that one of the new features is a blog award called "Top Marks." Since I love writing and love reading good writing, I want to start handing out awards to blog posts that are of particular literary merit. I plan on writing award posts linking to those posts and commenting on them, as well as creating a mini blogroll for the recent award winners. Maybe I'll even have some sort of contest for the TOP Top Marks posts with you, my readers, as the judges!
I'm toying with creating different categories for award-winning posts: Humor, Poetry, that sort of thing. If you have suggestions for categories, please let me know. ALSO: please, please let me know if you come across particular blog posts out there that you think are really well written. Then please email me the link at teachermommyblog [at] gmail [dot] com and I will take a look. I'll be finding some of my own, but there's no way I can hit it all. I do have a job, after all.

So let me know what you find out there in the blogosphere! And please let me (and Judith) know what you think of the new design!

What can I say? It's even in one of "your" colors. And like a new hairstyle or haircolor or new jacket or new shoes, it will give you a boost. It's very classy, too!
