Like the NYT, EdWeek now has a “most viewed” stories tab that lets you see which stories are getting the most reads (for an example see here). And, over the past few weeks, this blog has steadily creeped up the list and is (today at least) number two.
Of course, the list is totally unfair to everyone else at EdWeek, since I’m slapping up 5 or more posts every day and they’re putting out one or two real articles a week. At best, the blog is “most glanced at.”
But at least EdWeek readers seem to like the blog, and hopefully are stopping by to read the “real” EdWeek before or after they come here for some irresponsible gossip or snarky analysis. And, if it keeps up like this, maybe they’ll find a way to pay me more than my current starvation wages. In the meantime, please write in and tell them to stop hiding my stuff down in the bottom left corner of their homepage (www.edweek.org). That’s no way to treat their shiny new toy.
