Which Blog Gets The Most Page Views? Not This One. Which Blog Gets A Lot of Page Views? None Of Them.
What I get from this chart comparing daily page views for five education blogs over the past six months is that Education News (not really a blog, but sorta) leads the pack, with Joanne Jacobs right up there. Eduwonk and The Education Wonks seem to be gaining ground -- or maybe the others are declining. This Week In Education trails them all -- not so surprising considering the obviously poor quality of the site, the recent creation of the Chicago schools blog District 299, and all the mechanical flaws (having more than one URL, for example). Or at least, that's what I'm telling myself. None of the blogsites is read very widely -- EdWeek (not shown here) -- outpaces everyone, as you'll see if you plug it (or pretty much anything else) into the Alexa-meter. What do you see? What will it take for education blogs to be more widely read?
