Just got an interesting email congratulating me on Bionic Teacher being in the top 100 educational blogs.
Interesting not only because it’s not my blog, it’s Jim & Tom’s, and they moved to their own hosting a while back, (which is the second post on the page) – but also because the Top 100 claims that there are at least 5,000 education blogs (with possibly hundreds or even thousands more!)
Now I’m not going to bother to search out that 60K number a bit back (mainly because I didn’t think that held a lot of weight at the time) but instead ask you to roll over to edublogs, scroll down to the footer and check out that number alone!
No biggie, but I would’ve expected a little better in the way of research from the Online Education Database… and where was mention for edublogs eh? eh? eh? Naturally this is my sole real whinge ;)
Anyway, regardless I suppose it’s kinda nice to see The Knowledge Tree listed there as a blog (which means I’ve achieved my aim of blogifying a journal – w00t!) together with the always excellent Graham Wenger.
But if you really want to check out the best of the educational blogosphere may I recommend – alongside this (because it does have a lot of very good blogs in there) – the winners (and the nominees) of the edublog awards.
Oh, and have a great Christmas, new year and break (if you can get it) – exciting things are in store for 2007.
