    Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    Congratulations on your 10,000 visitors! What an accomplishment. I did not know a thing about blogging until you introduced it to Michael. Thank you so much for enlightening me and my son on this wonderful social network!

    My favorite posts were the ones about the UGP. I liked them because my dad is from South Africa.

  6. Dear Mrs. Ranney's class,

    This is Ryan, Justin's brother. What an outstanding achievement to accomplish in receiving 10,000 visitors!
    On my blog, my goal is still trying to get just 1,000 readers. I think ten-thousand people is like out- of- this -world! In my opinion, you really deserve an award for awesome success.

    To Mrs. Ranney and class,

    I am Theodore Roosevelt and I saw that you got 10,000 visitors! I time warped with a time machine from 1904 to 2011. I was just elected president back in the age where I come from!
    Here are some facts about me. I was born on October 27 in 1858. I graduated from Harvard College in 1880. In 1900 I was elected vice president of president William McKinley. As I said earlier I was also elected president. That is most of the facts about me. I bet there is going to be more facts about me later on in my life. I need to get back in my time machine to go find out!

  10. Dear Mrs. Ranney,
    I can't believe that we reached 10,000 visitors. I am so proud of ourselves. What is our next goal? By the way, I told Mr. Avery that we reached 10,000 visitors. I have to go to bed, so see you tomorrow!

    Your Student,

  11. Dear Mrs.Ranney and Class,

    When I heard that we reached 10,000 visitors,I got so excited. When I got home,I told my family that we reached 10,000 visitors. My favorite post was Welcome To Third Grade. I hope that we can reach up to 20,000


  12. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I cannot believe that we have over ten thousand visitors! When you told us in the beginning of the year that our goal was to get past ten thousand visitors, I was exceedingly excited to take part as one of the commenters that help to accomplish this tough goal. I was anxiously and impatiently waiting for this to happen. It is an honor that this year we got past ten thousand visitors on the blog.

    I noticed on the flag counter that the countries (other than the United States) that comment the most are Canada and the United Kingdom.

    My favorite post is “Puppet Project Presentations”. It is my favorite post because I got a chance to finally write my own post on the blog. It is also because many people enjoyed it.

    I cannot wait to find out how many visitors there are right now!

    Your student,

  13. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I can’t believe that we finally reached over 10,000 visitors on our blog! I heard Mrs. Yollis’ class blog has reached over 50,000 visitors! That is a big accomplishment.

    I think it is amazing that people around the world can visit blogs. Our blog has been viewed by people as far away as Nigeria, Oman, Panama, Virgin Islands, Cambodia, Montenegro, Armenia, Malta, Gibraltar, Latvia, Azerbaijan, Netherlands Antilles, Brunei Darussalam, Bahamas, and Qatar.

    When I heard that we had over 10,000 visitors, I was thrilled and very proud of myself and the rest of the class. It has been a great experience to learn to communicate with people through blogging!

    Your Student,


  14. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I'm very excited that we reached 10,000 visitors. All of us have helped the blog to accomplish that achievement. I was stunned that we reached 10,000 visitors.

    Let's keep up the great work!


  15. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    Congrats!!! I am happy that we reached 10,000 visitors. When we first accomplished 10,000 visitors, I felt like I was going to burst. I am still extremely proud. I enjoy commenting.

    I hope our blog reaches 15,000 visitors by the end of the school year.


  16. Dear Mrs. Ranney,
    I was excited when you told the class that we had over 10,000 visitors, and you said that we would have an outstanding celebration. The United States Of America has the most visitors. I am happy that we have more than 5,000 visits in the U.S.A. I can't wait until we have 20,000 visitors.

  17. Dear Mrs. Ranney,
    I'm so excited because we have 10,000 visitors. Do you know how many comments we have? I hope the blog will grow up to 15,000 visitors before the school year ends. The United States has the most visitors, and it is 5,560. When we got to 10,000 visitors I wanted to burst, because I was so excited. Last year did your class get to 10,000 visitors, or more, or less. If they got more I think they should get an award. Both of my favorite posts are the Uganda Global Project. My second favorite post is the one I am commenting on right now, and it is called 10,000 visitors.


  18. Dear Mrs. Ranney,
    When I found out that we got 10,000visitors I was excitedly surprised. I have learned to type better through blogging.I hope we get a lot more comments through the rest of the wonderful school year.


  19. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I can't believe we have reached 10,000 visitors. I was extremely proud of our achievement. It would be amazing if we could have that many comments. While we were on the blog, when you told us we had 10,000 visitors, I was shocked.

    Yours Truly,
