I began this blog three years ago today.
Writing it has made me a better teacher for my students, and I hope it’s been helpful to others.
My Feedburner statistics, along with the stats of several other edubloggers, went a bit haywire last month. Based on what they were saying prior to that time, I think I have about 8,000 daily subscribers, plus close to a thousand additional people who get my monthly newsletter (Feedburner now says I have 25,000 subscribers, but I’m not that deluded).
I appreciate the people I have met — online or in person — through this blog, and everything I have learned from you.
Thanks, and forward to another year!
In addition to the above few words, I thought people might find it interesting to see what have been the most popular posts since this blog began.

Thanks Larry. I had a really nice long comment here, and missed an “l” in the capctha, and Edublogs ate the whole comment.
But thanks for all you do, I use so much of what you share.
Larry – Congratulations in three years of this great blog. Your work is immensely appreciated! The resources you share are helping countless educators all over the world.
I was having a dinner conversation with my sister-in-law in NH a short time back mentioning blogging. She mentioned that she reads your blog daily. While I am sure that is just one of many examples, I found it interesting.
Thanks for all you do!
Larry! Congrats! Stay gold!
Congratulations! Thank you for sharing all the great stuff that has made me a better teacher and blogger.
Congratulations on your 3rd year of blogging! I learn so much from your fantastic lists and posts in general. Keep up the great work!
