Inspiring Websites and Blogs

I am teaching a 6-week online course introducing other early childhood professionals about creating basic websites and blogs. Our first week of exploration required my trainees to scour the web for inspiration. Each participant was required to post about 5 websites or blogs that they found inspiring for either their content, layout, or both.

Here is the wonderful compilation of websites and blogs that they provided. (I removed the duplicates)

The Green Fish Chronicles
Counting Coconuts
Chasing Cheerios
Teacher Tom
Tired Need Sleep
Joyful Toddlers
Childcare Info
Playfully Learning

I haven't had an opportunity to check all of these sites/blogs out in detail yet, but I'm pleasantly surprised to see some new to me sites to explore! I hope you find some inspiration as you peruse them!

Do you have a website or a blog of your own or one that you find inspiring? I'd love to hear about it! Please post it in a comment below!

Wow Amy, what a great list with some newbies to check out. So honoured to be included in such esteemed company. Oh, and I love that your participants were the ones that discovered these, not you for them.

First of all, I am thrilled that you are doing your on-line course! It's so important for child care providers to be on-line and to know how to access all the fabulous resources out there!

Many of these are new to me as well. I'm looking forward to browsing them this week.

Some gorgeous sites - am gradually working my way through the list .. some very talented people about!

My site, My Book Corner, reviews the best children's books & allows other to come on and add their comments ... so you can really see what works. Oh, and we also compare the prices for you to save you having to scour the internet.
