Because I have a blog!
Can you believe that this is post no. 300 on “adventures in oceanography and teaching“? That means more than 25.000 views, consistently more than 50 views per day over the last weeks (most coming from the US, followed by Germany, the UK and Norway; I had no idea so many people would be interested in such a niche topic!), many many nice comments, lots of new contacts to other people interested in teaching and oceanography, hours and hours of playing when I should be doing other things. “Because I have a blog!” has become my favorite excuse to do what I love: Play in/on/at/with water.
To celebrate, I’d like to point you towards my new “best of” page. Is your favorite post on there already? Or which one should I add? Let me know!
