Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Teach For Us by the Numbers

It’s the last day of July, and although the midwest heatwave seems to still be sitting right outside my apartment, we’re approaching the beginning of the school year for many districts, and that means all sorts of fun is coming up… school supply shopping, lesson planning and tracker-creating!  For any of you who don’t get enough data, I thought I’d share some of ours.

First up, we have our most visited active blogs.  The following list, in rank order, has 10 blogs which received the greatest number of visitors from January 1 to June 30.

I also want to give a special shoutout to some of our newer bloggers who have also had quite the online presence over this same time period.  Teaching Spanish For America (started January 12, 2011), Toni’s Class (started January 14, 2011), Don’t Stop Believin’ (started January 16, 2011), and Little Miss Sunshine (started March 14, 2011) have all tallied up some nice viewership numbers in their first few months blogging.

The Sky is Yours keeps people engaged the longest, with the average reader spending a whopping 22 minutes 40 seconds on the site and rubinc in nyc has a bunch of interesting posts, with an impressive 10 pageviews per reader!

Cali and Texas represent!  You sent us the greatest number of hits over the first half of the year.  It must have something to do with awesome corps in Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, San Francisco, L.A., and the Rio Grande Valley.

And now the part that makes me happiest.  The data shows we’re improving our scores!  From a year ago, we’re up 200% in visits and 80% in pageviews.  Talk about mastery!

For those of you who love your Browser battles, the King of Teach For Us when it comes to browsers is the mighty FireFox.  And although the iphone sends us 3% of our hits, Android usage to view the site has more than tripled from 0.5% to 1.8%.  I know Teach For Us looks quite pretty on my HTC Evo 3D!

Well that’s about all I’ve got for you on our data.  Now I’m off to set up my geometry tracker for the year.  Keep blogging hard and maybe you’ll make the list next time.
