It's worth keeping an eye on that blog


We have received from Ana Concejero, author of several great blogs, this meme, Vale a pena ficar de olho nesse blog ("It's worth keeping an eye on that blog"). It's a great honour to receive precisely from her this award that means that, from her point of view, our blog deserves a visit and we are very grateful.
According to the rules of the game, now I must choose ten blogs that I consider worth visiting and that I would like to promote, so to speak. First I must mention those blogs written by my teachers, the people who introduced me in this amazing world of blogging, podcasting and enjoying the web. Even though they don't need any promotion, their blogs are worth not a visit but a lot of them. So please visit José Luis Cabello's English Teaching Lab, (though José Luis is currently more active on twitter and posterous); Alejandro Valero's Apuntes sobre blogs; Lourdes Barroso's website and José María Campo's Roa Multimedia. Of course I don't expect them to reply, but I must recognise where I come from.  I must also publicize the great job my good friend Paqui Torralbo is doing with her Dolores Ibárruri-English Blog. She is responsible for me entering this world as well and I learn from her all the time.Of course other blog from where to learn lots of things, among them generosity, is Ángel Puente's El Balcón abierto. I also recently met Ángel González and his inspiring Colonial Nuggets. The amazing Langwitches Blog is full of ideas and creativity.. The same happens with Burcu Akyol's blog, whom I follow on twitter. Of course I must encourage you to visit one of the runners for Espiral Edublogs Awards 2010, Enredando en el instituto. Cómo fue el siglo XVIII by Ana Concejero, José Luis Gamboa, Celia Urbano, Rosa Lara and a few more. I wish them good luck!! And  of course many, many more blogs and bloggers who daily make an effort to offer the best from themselves...
Update: We have been mentioned as well by Ampliación de inglés, y Es todo el mundo un prodigio

Muchas gracias, Juan Ignacio, por la mención de Roa Multimedia en tu entrada.
La verdad es que tendría que darle un repasillo a las entradas del mismo. Pero es un blog al que quiero mucho debido sobre todo a su origen: ¡ah! aquellos días del encuentro de Roa de Duero 2006.
¡Enhorabuena por ese puesto de finalista en Edublogs 2010!
