It seems kind of appropriate that this 100th blog falls on the first day of classes for the fall semester.
I didn’t think I had the time nor did I think I had anything interesting to write about. But here we are at this important “century” milestone. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading so far!
For those of you still on the slow uphill trek to 100 posts, I thought I’d share a little secret of mine with you. When I feel like blogging, I sit down and start drafts of a whole bunch of posts at once and just save them until I’m ready to finish them off and post. If I need blogging material, I walk around with my camera for a few minutes to see if there’s anything interesting going on. And… when I download pictures, I download them to all the “waiting” blog drafts at once even if I don’t have the time to write the blogs right then and there. Sometimes, if I think of something to blog about, I just go into Blogger and create a blog post with nothing but a title, just to remind me that I want to blog about it later.
So, technically, even though this is my 100th published post, I passed 100 posts two weeks ago in my “drafts + published” folder.
Thought I’d share my readership stats with you (map shows hits from different states – keep in mind that your internet may actually come from a different state, thus you hits might be displaying from a neighboring state). This morning it looks like my readership is steadily increasing, now at about 30 readers a day.
Much of the work that I do to create content like math games, creative math activities, and modern application problems is unsupported. I teach as an adjunct and do not receive a full-time salary from any of my endeavors. Graphs In The World (GITW) is also a project unsupported by any kind of grant or salary. If you regularly use these materials, and it saves you time, consider donating a small amount per month to keep these resources coming.
