Blog makes two “top 100” lists: Thanks, readers (and CNN)

Posted by James McPherson on November 14, 2008

A couple of days ago my blog ended up on the WordPress Top 100 “growing blogs,” at least as high as number 71 (I only checked because someone had linked from there to my own site). Thanks to a link to CNN and Sarah Palin, yesterday’s post ended up among the top 100 posts of the day.

That’s cool, especially considering that I started this thing as a way of connecting with students and to learn more about the process. To all of you who have boosted the numbers, thank you. As long as it seems people are interested, I’ll keep writing.
