Blog Readers... I Need Your Help!!!

Over the course of the past year, you have seen daily themed reviews, all of which center around one piece of information from that day in history.

After much consideration, I’ve decided that next year’s (2010) highlight will be “52 Weeks of Themes.” I want to have you, my readers, actively involved – telling me what you want to see, so that my blog becomes of essence and help when you are planning your own curriculums.

I have come up with a list of 82 possible themes to feature and now, I’m asking my readers to take a look over the list and then drop me an e-mail, kateh12783@hotmail.com or comment on this post telling me which themes you’d like to see… they don’t need to be the ones I’ve listed – if you’ve got something else in mind, please, please, please let me know!

I want to make the blog as reader-friendly as possible and in order to do that, I need your input! It might be easiest to download this file, open it in word, and highlight the themes you want to see. List any others that I might not have suggested that you’re interested in and then e-mail me (kateh12783@hotmail.com) the file… whatever works for you, works for me! Remember, I'm trying to do this for your benefit, so please get involved!

I love the themes. Fun, fun idea. Truthfully, I would be interested in almost all of them, but I especially like the more unusual themes like "flip flops" and "shadows." How 'bout an adoption theme? Sorry, that's all I've got :(
