Using pageview on your blog
I use ClustrMaps and Rev-lvermaps on my blog. Mostly because I am curious about where my visitors live and because it is very motivating to see visitors from faraway places. You can read more about this below. The original post is found here.
One of the reasons I write a blog is to connect with educators around the world. Today I discovered that I had a guest from Odesa, Ukraine. If it is an educator I hope they find something useful here. These are the places in Ukraine that have visited this blog Kiev, Rivne, Dnipropetrovsk, Petrodolynske, Odesa, Sumy, Mykolayiv, Zhytomyr, Vyshneve,Ternopil. But apart from the one from Odesa today, this was a long time ago. I hope to see you back and I wish you well. We are thinking about you and the awful circumstances you are enduring and the children who are suffering. Education is so important.
One reason why you should write a blog is to connect with other educators. If you write in English, you might discover a whole world of teachers and students out there, and if you are lucky, you will eventually be able to build your own personal learning network. As mentioned in an earlier post, you need to become a networked learner and implement a networked classroom to be able to help your students. What better way to do this than connecting by writing on your blog? Clustermaps has some new cool features that make it even easier and more fun! Check it out!
1. Tweet maps Want to see where those tweets about you are coming from? The large maps will show you! All you need to do is provide your Twitter ID on your Admin page (no Twitter login/password is required for this)
2. Real-time dots See who has been visiting your site recently with up-to-the-minute ‘yellow dots’ (not to mention totals and date range info right on your thumbnail map). That’s right, these dots are updated every single minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
