  1. Hi Dana,

    I read the comment you left on my blog last week and sent you an email about donating to your giveaway - congrats on 100! I checked in tonight and noticed your giveaway was up and running. I wonder if maybe my email went into your spam folder? I am happy to donate something if you still want to add it! Here's the original email:

    Hi Dana!
    I just read your comment on my blog, Peace, Love and Learning - congrats on your 100 followers! I'd be happy to donate to your giveaway. What kinds of things are you looking for? I have some 100th Day things that would tie into your 100th celebration, some summer units that would be great for this time of year or some back to school units that would be good for those already planning for next year. You can poke around my TPT store ( or I can just pick a couple of things that I think your followers might like!

    Just let me know!

    1. Oh no! I did not get that email! Boo :( I will add you tomorrow! Thanks so much for getting back with me. Why don't you pick something and I will post it!

  2. Well hello there! I have a couple minutes to get my blog-stalk on, and it hit me... I need a grab my button ... button. How did you make yours?? I'm asking you because you're my first follower (and only so far haha!), and helping me comes with the title. Probably should have put up a warning or something. ;) jk I won't bother you much. Except for right now. THANKS!


    1. Making that button was almost the death of me! I found a tutorial and followed it and after a few hours, I had a button! Go to this post of mine: I mentioned and linked the blog where I found the instructions and 2 other good blogs for tech tips. And, as soon as I read your comment, I got an email of The 3am Teacher's blog post and in it are instructions on creating a button! The link is
      And if all else fails, pay someone to do it! Ha :) Seriously though, I hope this helps!

  3. I just found your blog through "Falling Into First". I am now following you!

  4. Hi Dana, I just emailed you about the New Teacher Blog feature. Thanks so much! I'm your newest follower:)

  5. Great blog! Keep up the great work!

  6. Dropped in from UBP13 and am really enjoying your blog. I think we have some things in common. If interested, my blog is titled Would love to have you take a look and let me know what you think. I have my masters in early childhood education, 2 teaching credentials and 20 plus years of teaching experience (though now retired).

  7. Hi! I love your blog! I am your newest follower. However, I do keep up with all your products on TpT so I'm glad I headed over to your blog today. What great ideas. My blog is about a day in the life of an elementary principal. I share all of my teachers great successes and classrooms. I often spotlight other bloggers and teachers like yourself. I hope you don't mind if I share your blog with them and your story. If interested, head over to my blog. Thanks
