My blog has had over 20,000 readers. It happened sometime in the last two days. I wish I knew who the 20,000th person was, but it’s exciting that I’ve had that many visitors over the years I’ve been running this blog. Who knew this kind of interest was possible? Not me — my old blog at LiveJournal (which really was more of a journal, a daily log) never topped a hundred visitors.
It’s a good time to take stock. I’ve definitely dropped off the “read others’ blogs and comment on them” bandwagon. I’m still busting my hump to keep up with the workload at my old school — it’s not heavy, in the sense of odious, because I’m enjoying the work. But I don’t have the time, yet, for keeping on top of what other educators outside this community are thinking about. I’m too busy navigating the new community I’m physically in. I want to get back into it, but it’s not high on my priority list right now.
I’ve been without effective internet services since late May, at least at home. I go to coffee houses, bookstores and other places with Internet, instead. Part of me wonders if I could make that part of my lifestyle-design process.
