The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,800 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

So, I have been breaking my own blogging rules. I really try to post at least once a week. I even recently did a workshop at a regional conference about blogging and using social media as an education researcher and I made the point to those in attendance that it is imperative that you make a commitment to writing regularly. There is nothing more annoying than a dead-end blog. In an effort to stop breaking my own rules I am posting today.
I didn’t post last week because I was out of New Orleans. I was at the Mid-South Education Research Association (MSERA) conference at Ole Miss and then at the College For Every Student (CFES) national conference in Burlington, VT.
I want to spend a moment talking a little more about MSERA. This was a wonderful regional conference and I found the climate to be very supportive of graduate students. If you are in AR, LA, MS, AL, TN, or KY I highly suggest adding this conference to your schedule for next year. MSERA 2012 will be held in Lexington, KY. I had a great time at the conference with my colleagues from the University of New Orleans. Many thanks to fellow doctoral student Shannon Chaisson for getting me involved and congratulations to Shannon for being elected as Graduate Student Representative to the MSERA board.
In case you’re interested in what I was up to at those conferences, here are the links to my conference Prezis. I promise a more substantive post soon. If you’re in Louisiana don’t forget to keep an eye on the BESE district run-offs!
