Starting a math blog (notes from Kate and Sam and Jason and ???)

May 31, 2010 pm31 10:39 pm

Fine discussion started by Kate, picked up by Sam, continued by Kate, pointed to by Jason

Kate wants you to know how to start a math blog (Sam has different advice), and she also wants you not to focus (too much?) on the numbers… (Jason has a different take).

And with all that good advice out there, here I am stuck with a half-math blog, pleasing no one but myself, and that only on the good days…

For the record, my own half-baked advice is to carve a niche (I tried to carve several, not a great idea) and to stay in it. Well, going outside is fine, but come back to it.  And to write regularly (once a week, if that’s what you do, you should do regularly. once a month, if that’s what you do…..)  And to pick a name of at least 6 characters with a mix of letters and numbers.  :)

    >pleasing no one but myself

    I love your blog! I admit that I usually skip over the union stuff, but I’m glad it’s there. I’m glad to know at least one of my blogger buddies is doing union activism. You have given me the low down on school closings – ugly business! – and shown me how a big union works (just a bit), and then I get to see your lovely puzzles. Thank you for a great blog. (Definitely in my top ten, and I follow 156 blogs.)

      Thanks, Sue. There is a limited audience that appreciates both sides, and I in turn appreciate you.

      I know about the gulf. But it just seems so natural that those that care about good teaching would also care about the politics threatening it…

    I may have not commented lately, but I’m still reading – I enjoy your blog too. :-)
