2010 in review

Hello everyone, my apologies for the absence of posts in December. For anyone even tangentially involved in education, December poses an energy sapping nemesis. I intend to start this year off strong, and with that goal, I am readying a post for publication later this week. In the interim I would like to share some statistics that WordPress (the host and tool I use to maintain this blog) has provided me.

This blog is extremely young; it is only five months old, yet it has done very well. I hope it is not too vain to post these results. I put a lot of effort into this blog, and I am glad people have read it and enjoyed it. I did not expect such a good reception and so many readers, especially not within only five months. Thank you, and happy New Year!

Healthy blog!

About Webster

Transitionally, I’m a math student and tutor en route to becoming a math professor. Permanently, I’m a mathematics enthusiast. I study mathematics professionally, and as a leisure activity. At the time of writing this, I’m a generalist. I have let to reach the depth of understanding that requires specialization. Though I eagerly await that time, I do enjoy the ‘now’ and find there is bountiful food for thought at any level.

  1. a quote from Goethe;
    ” Until one is committed there is always hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness, concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans :
    the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help that would never otherwise have occurred.A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising to one’s favor all manner of unforeseen accidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” I hope that you can embrace Goethe Webster…but my guess is you will not be able too. He was anti- enlightenment and cheer leaded that which is subjective when scientism was herraled as the new Nirvana….. I am sure he was quite intelligent as you!
