    We can’t put your blog, right? One of my favorites is Two Writing Teachers.
    Once a week they host a Slice of Life, where anyone can link up their post. During the month of March they do the Slice of Life Challenge, where you write and link your post everyday for the month. (No rules for what you write, and you don’t have to be a teacher.) Last year I didn’t get to it everyday, but the year before I did all 31 days and it was challenging and refreshing. Plus they also have great resources for writing for teachers too. I’ve used a lot of their ideas with my students.
