1. Through some glitch in the screening process, Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub sneaked onto the list. The bubbles in the Bathtub seem deeper and warmer as we just think about it. We’re flattered to be listed, even with an asterisk.
2. There are 49 very good blogs on that list, a few of which I’ve not heard of before, some of my old favorites, and all of them very interesting that I’ve checked out so far. Go check them out. They deserve the traffic. You deserve the information.
In fact, just to give them all a link boost, I’ll copy McLeod’s list below the fold.
School’s out for me, with just a little cleanup and an amazing training burden left for the summer. This last semester has been a doozy. I’ve not blogged nearly so much as I should have. There are a lot of issues left on the table. It’s nice to be on the list; I wish there were more comments. I find the feedback useful, fun, and instructive, like older son Kenny’s chastisement this morning subtly slipped into comments on the Mencken typewriter post.
Where should education bloggers be going, Dear Readers? Where should this blog be going?
McLeod’s list below the fold; comments are open for the whole summer.
Below is my latest attempt. I made a few changes from last time, which I describe after the table. Authority and rank are from Technorati as of June 2. Clicking on each blog name will take you to its Technorati page.
Be sure to look at his methodology. Technorati links can be skewed — I know mine is skewed by kids looking for information about the Berlin Wall, for example, some of whom link to the photos I’ve posted.
McLeod also links to other lists of education blogs; he says there are more than 100,000 edubloggers total. For America’s best and greatest industry, that might be an appropriate number.
Other attempts have been made to catalog the top edublogs. Of note are the following:
From my view, there are a lot of much better blogs than this one out there. This may be a one-time ranking if anyone ever discovers the man behind the curtain. For example, The Living Classroom, a site I find particularly inspirational and fun, probably doesn’t get enough traffic to be a blip on these rankings, but the material is great, the potential for lesson plan inspiration is outstanding, and it would be well worth the time of anyone in education to take a look at it.
What other undiscovered education gems are out there in bloggerland?
