The Landscape of Learning's Top 10 Blog Posts of the Year

It has been exactly one year since I have created my blog, The Landscape of Learning.  From blogging, I have learned so much about learning, teaching, reading, writing, blogging, education, and relationships.  I have noticed myself become a much better writer by simply reading what other educators have to say, analyzing their thoughts, and synthesizing my own into blog posts.

Like most educators, I decided to start my own blog for the following reasons:

  1. To internalize all of the information and media that I consume everyday regarding best practices in education. 
  2. To build on my pedagogical beliefs, keep current in my field, and stay up to date on the latest technology resources that are available.
  3. To share my expertise, resources, and pedagogy with other educators around the world. 
  4. To give back to my personal learning network of educators who already do so much for me.
  5. To continue to learn and grow with my personal learning network with the hope that our knowledge and expertise will continue to provide the best possible education for students all over the world.
In just one year I have written nearly 100 blog posts and collected nearly 50,000 views by more than 135 different countries from around the world. What I find interesting is that what I perceive to be the most valuable and useful blog posts are completely different from what my readers perceive as most valuable and useful. After analyzing my blog stats, it seems as if my readers are more interested in the resources and tools that I share, rather than sharing my educational insight, experience, and ideas regarding best and next practice teaching strategies.  This is very powerful feedback for me!

I would like to thank all of my subscribers, commenters and readers for finding my blog to be both valuable and useful.  If you are reading this blog post, then I would like to personally thank you for participating and contributing to my personal learning network!

  1. I'm curious for your next post. Excellent post. Keep writing such kind of information on your blog. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating to this. Thanks for sharing your thoughts Wishing you best of luck..
