After my last post, I had hoped for a barrage of comments about my students’ posts on Alfred Crosby‘s Ecological Imperialism; however, my hopes were not immediately fulfilled (or else my students haven’t approved all of your insightful, incisive comments yet). I do, however, recognize that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and therefore blog posts read by an average of 10 people per day won’t immediately have an earth shattering effect. Therefore, I’m willing to be patient.
Nevertheless, I thought as a way to track who was making their way to my classes’ blog feeds page, I’d add a ClustrMap, which will hopefully provide a nice, semi-tangible illustration of how broad an audience their work reaches.
As you can see from this image, no one (expect me, I suppose) has visited the page and ClustrMaps hasn’t yet produced any data; however, I am looking forward to learn what data can be collected about my newly reinvigorated (or has it just been “invigorated” for the first time?) #Comments4Sophs program. Swing by and check out the page. What feedback do you have about its functionality, design, implementation, etc.? Any thoughts that can improve the page are welcome!
