Today seems like Link To SoYouWantToTeach day in the blog world. Maybe I really should go on vacation more often! Eric Turner has featured my site as his Wedneday Website #3 for the week. Some of his comments include: First of all, the blog is written by a guy! Finally! A edublog written by a guy! I try. I like this guy cause he is posting some genuinely good stuff for teachers (or future teachers). Additionally, he has done everything possible to help you navigate his website; directing you to the posts you should read first and then elsewhere and such. When I first went on it, I felt like I was on a road map, it was that nice. Thank you Seth Godin. Thank you Copyblogger. See that red box at the top of your screen? This is the power of using WordPress plugins. If you don’t see it, you’ve been to the site a few times. Welcome back. Incidentally the one that does the red box is called What Would Seth Godin Do? That’s why I have created my New Visitors page, my personal top 10 list, and How To Get The Most Out Of This Site. It’s also why I have the related posts and most popular posts plugins. As far as his comments on why many people don’t link to me, I have been quietly posting daily since the beginning of June and will move to a slower schedule when August begins. The goal for this summer has been to get a substantial body of good articles on here that will help younger teachers out with their lives. I have done internal things that will make for better marketing, but I have not done a whole lot of external marketing yet. I recently submitted an article to the Carnival of Education and will begin doing a bit more publicity stuff soon. Than k you Eric, for your wonderfully kind comments and I hope that I can continue to live up to what you’ve said about me already!
