Six Weeks of

5043260906_f3cdd53805_mTomorrow marks six weeks since I officially launched this blog. I’ve been amazed by the response to it. In just six weeks 3,500 people have subscribed to either the RSS or email feed. To bring some organization to what I’ve reviewed so far I sat down and created a slideshow of most of the apps that I’ve reviewed in the last six weeks. The slideshow is organized in the following order: math apps, science apps, social studies apps, language arts apps, video apps, and productivity apps.

    Congratulations on the momentum! Few new blogs are able to ramp up audience so quickly. I think you’ve hit a sweet spot though. Regarding your subscribers, those numbers for RSS and email are great – but you’ve got a really solid Twitter presence, too. In a report on the top 500 most peer-followed experts on Learning, you’re in the top 30. (That’s what my company does, create reports like that and tools about any topic). I see you’ve been on Twitter for 5+ years already, perhaps that well-established foundation was a major factor in your ability to ramp this blog fast, too.

      Thank you for the feedback, Marshall. I followed and appreciated your work at Read Write Web for years. You’re right, my Twitter following and the base of subscribers on my other blog definitely have helped ramp this blog up. The topic of the blog also matters. I started a blog about Android apps for school 13 months ago and it is yet to reach 1,000 subscribers. That’s very reflective of how much iPads have been embraced by school leaders in comparison to Android devices.
