One Person Can’t Change Much, Can They?

SOSNZ logoNever underestimate what you can do – especially if you are a teacher.

I’m not changing the world on a grand scale – but I know I’m making a difference and that every little helps.

You don’t have to be Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi or Malcolm X to do something.

Why Did You Start The Blog?

My little something is to use my love of social media to share the many things I read about education.  I thought a few others might like to read them too.  Turns out I was wrong… it wasn’t just a few that wanted to read them, but thousands.  Huh!  Go figure.

The first ever post was this one … “Nice Easy Solutions“.  Not a bad start, if I say so myself 😉

Ten Thousand Hits and Counting

Here are some whimsical facts about the blog, to celebrate our ten thousandth hit – yahoo!

  • Started in May 2012
  • Got a thrilling 35 hits in its first month!
  • By mid October, it had got 10,000 hits!!
  • Readers are mostly from NZ, but also from UK, USA, Australia, Japan, Canada, Singapore, India and about 50 other countries, including 8 hits from Finland, and one hit each from as far afield as Oman, Jordan, Egypt, Mexico and Bangladesh.
  • Most hits in one day was 574 on the day the Christchurch closures/mergers/relocations were announced.
  • Traffic comes mostly from Facebook, Search engines and Twitter but from about 60 sources in total.
  • Most intriguing search term that lead to us ‘How to write apology letter to teacher’
  • Most comments have been by Barbara – thanks 🙂
