Top Twelve blogs of the quarter, and a bonus track, is how I described the image above. It shows the stories, the posts, and the items on my blog that have interested readers most over the past 90 days.
As I look at it, I must admit to a sense of contentment. I am content that my blog is serving not only myself, but the greater ELT community as well. Not only that, I feel legitimately able to conclude, based on the stats shown above, that readers are coming not only from the ELT community, but outside as well.
I feel that when I am able to come into contact with a diverse group of people, that it benefits me in what I do as a teacher of EFL, by bringing me into contact with ways of thinking and ways of seeing things that are normally excluded to a teacher of English as a foreign language.
This in turn enriches my practice in numerous ways. To all the readers, I give you my sincere thanks for your readership. I hope you will return from time to time. And when there is something that is unsaid, or something you wish to say to me, then please leave your comment. I will reply to you. By having a dialogue, I will grow in my appreciation and understanding of the topic we are interacting on.
Before I conclude, I would be remiss if I didn’t draw your attention to the list above. How many of the stories have you read? Have you read sometrhing, that you’d like to read again? Is there a story you’d like to share with a colleague? What’s your favorite post from the list above? Which one would you like me to write a follow-up post on?
I thank you in advance for your comments, your suggestions, and your recommendations. If you have criticism, or something you’d like to point out, I also thank you. In this way, you help me to grow, better, I hope.
Kind regards to one and all,
Teacher of English as a foreign Language
