I began this blog about a year ago. From what I’ve seen in the education blogosphere, it appears to be customary to mark this occasion with a bunch of numbers — one thousand posts, five hundred comments, nine hundred subscribers, thirty-thousand visitors from 146 countries, 260 blog “reactions” (according to Technorati), and several hundred visitors each day.
My most popular posts have been The Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education and The Best Online Learning Games.
The most important measurement of this blog for me, though, can be seen in the fact that I’m a better teacher because of what I’ve learned by writing it and from learning from others who read it. Thanks.
What is prob most meaningful are the connections you are making with others around the world.
I am grateful to see your blog in my RSS every day, with a wide range of links and information. Your blog helps me become a better teacher, too.
Happy Birthday Larry! Wondering though where is the cake? Thinking maybe Alice needs to bake?
WOW but you are truly amazing Larry that is an incredible number of posts – was just comparing my statistic –Started April 2007 – 219 posts and 1,214 comments (ok there are a few spammers in that lot and some links).
Congratulation Larry (from Italy)

Luca, Kevin and Sue,
Thanks for your kinds words and support! Sue, most of my posts are far shorter than your extremely helpful instructional ones, so I have to confess that my statistics are a little “padded.”
I’ve only just stumbled upon your blog and will be subscribing right now. Happy anniversary and please keep it up for 100 more!
