Here’s the EBEFL review of 2013 in numbers.
|and they lived happily ever after…
2 weddings. I got married, not once, but twice this year, -best to make sure.
3 Number of conferences I presented at. My first ever conference paper was in March, in Kyoto in Japanese and it was as terrifying as it was dire! I did BALEAP in April, you can see the talk here and I did another BALEAP talk in November.
4 months break from twitter. Who knew they delete your account after a month?!?! My 700 ish followers down to a mere 50, I like to think of these as the wheat, the crème-de-la-crème, the hard-core, folks like the wonderful Florentina Taylor, the marvellous Michael E Griffin, as well as many others like the secret DOS, Mura, James, Patrick, Leo, Anne, Hugh, Rachel, and Tyson among many many others. I’m hoping I can get to meet some of these people at IATEFL next year.
5 the number of people who came to watch me talk at BALEAP in November. I did get nice feedback from them though, -so that’s something.
33 the number of posts I wrote this year. That seems like an awful lot.
51,000 the number of pageviews this blog has had ,so far. March was a very popular month with almost 10,000 views. It may have been my Guessing from context post which became the second most popular post on this blog. When the head of IATEFL retweeted this post, I got quite a lot of traffic too.
I hope to start a new series of posts called “Try this -this works!” in which I talk about those things we should be doing in the classroom according to the evidence. I’ve had quite a few requests for something like this and have held off, but I think I’ll give it a whirl.
Thanks for reading, -hope you have a fab 2014!
