Promoting My Teaching Materials

I've started to experiment with promoting teaching materials that I have created that I have posted on Teachers Pay Teachers. At this point, I am not planning to use any other advertising. All those google and banner ads look so tacky, and I am really proud of Minds in Bloom. But I don't want my ads to be too overwhelming or tacky looking either.

I've tried to make it clear which are my ads by putting them all in bold blue, whereas most of the rest of my links are in purple. I doubt many people read the About this Site posts, but if you are, and if you have an opinion about the way I self promote, I'd love to hear it. Trying to walk that line between getting people's attention, but not being obnoxious.

MindBlossom

MindBlossom: An idea. Ideally a good one that will flower into something amazing.

This blog is my MindBlossom. I came up with the name while thinking about Bloom's Taxonomy and then found that I was delighted by the little play on words. Then I made the logo, and since this is a blog about higher level thinking, of course it had to be a picture puzzle.

My original idea was to call it "Scarecrow's Wish" but some of my friends thought it sounded a little scary, and some of them didn't get the reference, and it is hard to draw an appealing scarecrow. So that idea got axed.

Minds in Bloom is still in its infancy, but I have high hopes. Please feel free to pass on any ideas or comments!
