This post is a ritual milestone marker: 3 million views.  The 2 million mark was in March 2016. Lots has happened since then including changing the name of the blog; I’m much happier with teacherhead.com.  I like to record the major milestones but it takes a fair degree of geekery to have this level of fascination in some blog stats.  Apologies!

This is the pattern of views per month since I started in May 2012.

Here are the all time most viewed posts, including all those with 20K views or more:

You can see the power of a click-bait title:  Behaviour, assembly ideas, differentiation, homework.   I’m pleased that Ten Teaching Techniques has been widely read – as has ‘Contemporary educational ideas’.  Principles of Effective Teaching and 10 silver arrows also continue to be read a lot which is great.

In a couple of months the blog will be upgraded quite significantly with a new look and new functions.  My book The Learning Rainforest will be published in October.  Some of the material comes from blogs I’ve written over the last five years;  I certainly could not have written a book had I not developed some writing fluency through blogging.   I hope I can continue to maintain the blog long into the future and that people will continue to read and to comment. It’s been a wonderful experience, building up a record of ideas and reflections over time and making a contribution to various debates; it has also been therapeutic to document the various trials and tribulations of my career!

Thanks for all the support you have given this blog as readers.  It means a lot to me.
