    I started a teaching blog maybe a year and a 1/2 ago. I'm such a nerd :rolleyes: but I was so excited I now have 100 followers!!!! :D

    I know that doesn't seem like much compared to the millions out there who have 500 or more, but mine is in a very weird niche. There are a lot of cutesy 1st Grade blogs out there-mine doesn't really fit in with that crowd. Plus I post a lot about GT education in the early grades and not everyone is interested in that info either. I was stuck at like 95 for the longest time-today it's just over 100.

    Anyway, it made my day!

    Now you're at 105. :)

    I used to do a webcomic blog where I made comic strips on my adventures of teaching. I also would be so happy when someone became a new "fan". I've stopped drawing my comics since November. I keep telling myself that I should get back into it.

    That is wonderful Kinder & that's a lot of followers. I've had several blogs, (photography & teaching), as well as websites (Inspirational & Photography), and a discussion forum (inspirational) and nothing ever takes off. I didn't get enough visitors to stay motivated and keep it going. I still have a photog site that I'm not going to get rid of, I'll keep it for myself :)

    My discussion forum did reach 100 members and a few thousand posts but the work required was a bit much, all the research, updates, fees and such. So I have completely given up and gone into something else. I guess I fail at the internet, lol.

    100 Followers is a lot to be proud of. Good for you.:thumb: Peachyness I enjoyed your site as well. You should get back into it :)

    How do you follow the blog? I am looking at it but don't see what I need to do.

    :) Yeah... I have plenty of stories that I wanted to share, but it's the motivation to work on them that's been tough.
