It’s been two and a half years since I started Those Who Teach, and 2014 was the blog’s best year yet.
Average daily views grew more than tenfold this year, and subscriptions to the blog increased by more than 360 percent!
Another fun fact: more than 75 percent of the hundreds of reader comments on the blog were written this year.
All this, despite my embarrassingly infrequent posts — only 12 this year, including this one.
So thank you for reading this blog — and sticking with it — despite the lack of steady content. I’m grateful for your time, and for your comments, ‘likes,’ shares and follows.
And I pledge to give you more of what you’re looking for in 2015. This includes more positive stories about teachers — both those who’ve found a way to stay in the game, and those who’ve found life after teaching. And I plan to share more career change tips, as well as personal reflections on leaving teaching.
Also, if you’d like to contribute to the blog, please let me know. Advice from veteran teachers and those who’ve found post-teaching careers is especially welcome.
Just leave a comment below, or email me at thosewhoteach[at]gmail[dot]com.
Thanks again for reading and I wish you the very best in 2015!
And for all you teachers, here’s a friendly reminder to enjoy these last days of holiday break, even Sunday!
