Hello, reader! If you intend to post a link to this blog on Twitter, be aware that for utterly mysterious reasons, Twitter thinks this blog is spam, and will prevent you from linking to it. Here's a workaround: change the .com in the address to .ca. I call it the "Maple Leaf Loophole." And thanks for sharing!

Do Not Be Discouraged

f(t) didn't have many readers for a long time, either.

What happened in March 2009? I think it was Math Teachers at Play #3 and Logarithm War.


  1. Man that summer of 09 must have been scary. I suppose it's to be expected readership drops off when school's not in session, but it must have been tough to have confidence it would eventually rebound.

  2. Hm, I don't think scary is really the right adjective. I wasn't expecting many people to read soon or ever. It wasn't like I was trying to support myself with my income from blogging or anything. The whole point was to write reflectively to improve my own practice.

  3. Those are visitors and not page views?

    I think quality of readership matters, as well. People clearly come here to read about teaching high school math. They come to read someone who uses technology. And they come to read someone who talks about success ... and unsuccess. You've created a fairly loyal following, and that concentrated loyalty matters as much as the size.


  4. My stats from the dy/dan four slide contest:

    Slow and steady.


Hi! I will have to approve this before it shows up. Cuz yo those spammers are crafty like ice is cold.
