This-a Way and That-a Way

On Friday, we got the tiniest bit of snow; about an inch. To get to an appointment I had to drive up a tiny hill. Actually, it was more of a slight incline than a hill. My truck could just not get up this thing. Cars passed me as I slid this way and that way, all over the road. After some seemingly etermal minutes, and lots of wheel spinning, I made it up. It was amazing for how much effort it took.

After three weeks of vacation, I go back to school tomorrow. I wonder what the odds are of getting a giant snowstorm tonight.

Dear Snippety Gibbet,

Your paper cuttings are gorgeous!

My name is Jill Randolph and I work with, a website providing over 50,000 reference pages of real-world information on careers, communities, and colleges to our 10 million annual visitors.

I was reviewing your blog and wanted to let you know that we have just released a free 64-page e-book we think you and your visitors may find interesting. An article published Thursday provides additional information as well as commentary from a fellow webmaster and blogger who has linked to the e-book. Additionally, we issued a press release Friday, to help increase awareness. Our e-book provides a candid, real-world perspective on the elementary teaching profession via interviews with 25 teachers from grades 1 through 5, across a variety of disciplines including reading specialists, PE, and music teachers, to name a few. The book offers advice, tips, best and worst parts of the job, as well as words of wisdom, inspiration and caution from working teachers. One quote from the book:

"Many people think that because the school day ends at 3 PM teachers just leave, but, the truth is, we stay late and often put in more than an eight-hour day. Almost always we take work home with us. Yes, we do have summers off, but we are constantly thinking about the school year to come and working on our skills."

Yours is one of the very first blogs we are reaching out to, so that you may share this relevant information with your visitors. We hope you’ll take a bit of time to review the book – it’s a fairly quick read – and then consider passing along your thoughts to your readers. We can provide you with cover art images in various sizes if you would like and we recommend linking to the page containing the eBook (

Thank you for your time and consideration. If I can answer any questions you may have, please don't hesitate to contact me.
