Marks, set, go! ELT Blogathon 2011

February will see me divide my blogging time between my usual posting space here and the ELT Blogathon on the British Council/Teaching English website. You may have seen some tweets flutter by about this recently but for those of you who don’t know, this is a month long event open to English teachers in Turkey. From February 1st to March 1st, the registered bloggers (including me - vest number 055!) will post about all sorts of ELT related topics and at the end of the month a winner will be chosen. The prize? An all expenses paid trip to IATEFL!

“I am not a number - I am a blogger!”

You can find a collection of all the posts made so far here. So, come on! Get over to the Teaching English website and take a look. I’m not asking anyone to support me but I think this will be a cool way to connect with other teachers who are not necessarily regular bloggers. Perhaps you can make some new contacts and encourage some new faces to start their own blogs and join Twitter.

But if you do want to support me, you can always check out my posts. Winking smile The last train ride to IATEFL is about to leave the station and I’m running for it!
