Sam Shah is providing an amazing community service. He's offered to help new bloggers get started with a 4-week-long initiation: each week the new blogger gets a prompt to write about, and gets featured on the blog of a more established blogger. I have the honor of being one of the volunteer "established bloggers".
Sam expected maybe 20 or 30 participants. He got almost 200. There are about ten volunteers, so we'll each get almost 20 new bloggers to feature.
I wanted to offer something else. I know I needed lots of hand-holding when I was starting up my blog. I'm not sure I could have done it without Kate's help. Sam will be away this week, so I'm adding my own layer here. If you're one of the group of 200, and have questions, comment on this post. I'll take on the first 5 people with questions. You can email me at mathanthologyeditor on gmail after being one of the first 5 to comment here.
To all of you, have fun!
