  3. Dear Mrs Yollis and class,

    Well done getting short listed for the Edublog Awards.

    I really wish you well.

    Congratulations to Miriam and Jaden too.

    I really wish everyone could win but unfortunately only one with in each of the catergories. Anyway I think you are all winners!

    From your friend down under,

  4. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    I really hope our class blog wins! I told my brother to vote, I told my grandparents to vote, my parents, my aunt and uncle, and my mom and dad told there friends to vote, and seven of my moms friends and five of my dads friends actually did vote! That equals twelve votes!

    On our laptops Royce and I voted on all of the categories that you recommended. I also did vote for Miriam because in my opinion, she is one of the best kid bloggers I have ever seen!

    I hope we win!

    Hi, I am Dylan from Mrs. Ranney's Class. I voted for Jaden in your class last year. I voted for him because he was my second friend I've ever known. I think Jaden does have an Awesome Blog! Jaden encouraged me to make a Blog. First, I tried Blogger, but it didn't work, so I made my Blog on My Blog is called Dylan's Superb Blog. I have just made my Blog. It is a really cool Blog, and I am looking forward to it. I vote for Jaden every day because I know him really well. I am looking forward to see who wins including your Blog!
