Last night (June 7, 2011), the 8 Blog logged its ten thousandth view. When I started this blog in November 2009, I thought this would be a great way to share some of my ideas for integrating technology into face-to-face and online classes. My hope was that a few educators from the local community would read the blog somewhat regularly and that it would be a great way to foster some discussion around instructional technology. Even though I study social media and use it educationally, I am honestly amazed and humbled by the response to the 8 Blog. The blog regularly gets more than a thousand views each month and people are visiting from around the world. I want to thank all of you who have supported my efforts by linking to, commenting on, retweeting or “liking” posts from the 8 Blog.
