Student Readers: A Warning

I welcome students readers to this blog. However, be aware that, although I do not use anyone's actual name, the descriptions of behaviors and conversations are not disguised. This is a space in which I may rant, vent, and otherwise express responses that I would do my best to mask or at least tone down in professional interactions with students. This is my personal, gloves off, no holds barred, direct from the gut expression of what it feels like to do my job. If you think you might be hurt or offended or upset by that, read no further. The person I'm ranting about could be you.

Hi! And you are...?

My readership has suddenly blossomed, which is a lovely development--but I don't know who is reading the blog, how you found it, and why you find it interesting. I'd love to hear from you! Please feel free to use the "comment" box at the end of any particular post to let me know what brought you to this page--and what keeps you coming back for more (if you do).

Not you, Barry. You already told me--and thanks!

OK, I'm an attention junkie

After I post, I always check the stats for this blog: how many views have there been in the last week, month, all time... There's a graph showing how many page views there have been in each month, and some time back, I got close to breaking 800--but not quite. So I'm jonesing for that little hit of "success." Tell your friends. Tell your enemies. Let's get more people checking in on this blog so I can get more than 800 hits in a month! What key words do I need to use so people doing random searches end up getting directed here? I don't want to descend into sleaze, but short of that, what are the buzz words?

Ah, screw it. Either people find the blog and find it worth reading or they don't.

But it would be nice...
