McCarthy's Law #56

Wow. Classic. Just wanted to let you know that I read all of your comics religiously. It pains me to see 0 comments posted so consistently. You are the Scott Adams of teachers, and this blog should be exploding with conversation. Lest I be charged with blowing too much smoke up your posterior, I think you should always have a colleague proofread before publishing. I also wish I could read each panel without having to go back and re-click. I can't wait for the day when I can be a Donovan Wheeler-following hipster who read Chinese Fire Drill before it went mainstream.

Thank you. That's very kind. I do agree I need a proofreader. I check and check, but I always miss something (probably because I work on them when I'm tired after spending my day in the classroom). I'm looking for some way to post them as one panel, but I work with very limited software. Still...that's a good point, and I should probably make that priority. I have no idea if this thing will ever catch fire, though.
I did somehow get Diane Ravitch to follow me via Twitter, but I've sort of plateaued at the moment. Some good advice I got recently was, "Just keep at it and let it grow slowly." I'll take the proofreader as another piece of good advice. I think I've trusted my own eyes too much on that.
Anyway, thank you.
If this ever does get any kind of traction at all, I'll be sure to send plenty of shout-outs your way.
