Visible to anyone in the world

Wow, just wow.

i have so busy, i have not been on my blog for a couple of months.

Imagine my surprise and joy at loggin onto this blog and seeing 250,000 views.

A quarter of a million views, that is incrediable,

THANK YOU EVERYONE.

DD309 is really hard, and very dense, with a great deal of reading involved.

so i doubt i will have much spare time bewteen now and the finish of my degree in May 2021, to pop on here and blog.

I will try and blog as much as i can between now and my finish. I am 5 months out of gaining my politics,philosophy and economics degree, i just need to get to the finish line, sane and in one peice.

here is hoping....

Actually getting to 100,000

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Michael Gumbrell, Tuesday, 23 Jul 2019, 20:38

I actually got there. Well, i didn't get there, you got me there.

Into the 6 figure club... 100,000 views.

Thank you everyone, frequent visitors and new visitors.

I hope you all did the best you could in your exams, i did okay, but wasn't expecting to do better than okay.

I did not revise that much, so could not hope for a good result, so much of DD209 went over my head, instead of going into it.

However, a pass is a pass, so happy days.

After 5 years with the OU i have amassed;

1 CertHe

1 DipHe

1 hundred thousand blog views

1 student debt

And

1 desire to finish with the OU and move onto a Masters.


I am a lucky 1.

Thank you everyone. That is truly amazing. I am very humbled that so many of you have taken the time to come to my blog and wade through the stream of posts.

Thank you all so very much.

And the counter says. .

Visible to anyone in the world

So it was a few days after the exam, but the counter has made it to 20,000 !!!!

That is mad really, that so many people take the time to read my posts.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to visit my blog.

I think i might try and be a bit more interactive from now on... instead of just posting closed questions and statements, post more open questions and generate more conversations with comments left on posts?

So lets try this one.  

Will you be doing any extra study activities during the summer? Or will you just enjoy the time off?

I have never read Richard Dwakins ' the bi-cameral mind' and i think it would be rewarding to read it, so that's my summer suggestion. What would be yours?

The views counter is chugging along nicely, about to pass 19,000.

Will it hit 20,000 before my philosophy exam on Tuesday 5th of June?

Do the Open University give extra credit for 20,000 blog visits? In case the exam does not go well?

So place your bets; will the counter hit 20,000 before i sit my exam at 10:00 am on Tuesday 5th of June 2018?????

Half way through and potentially 20,000 views.

I will be proud of that.

slowing down with blogs

Visible to anyone in the world

i have really slowed down with my blogs lately.

Partly because A222 is nearing it's completion, and i have to just knuckle down and get it finished (never to be seen again)

Plus i don't feel like i have much to say at the moment, i think it is better not to just post rubbish for the sake of it.

My view counter passed 15,000 some time in the last three weeks, so thank you to everyone who has taken the time to view my blog.

Visible to anyone in the world

The counter is on 9971. I will be at work today, so i might miss the counter hitting 10,000.

I dont think ' sorry boss, i can not come to work today, i need to keep an eye on my ou blog view counter' is really going to stand up as a excuse not to go to work.

Getting closer...

Visible to anyone in the world

9909 views! 

Getting closer to five figures.

There might be a prize for whoever makes the 10,000 view.

However the prize could be a 50% completed a222 module!

Who would want that!

One year of OU blogging

Visible to anyone in the world

So in my first 2 years of OU study i posted twice, an average of...let me think for a minute...once a year.

Last year i decided to blog more frequently.

So here i am one year later with 6 pages of posts and 6400 views.

I think it has been fun and i will commit to another year of being an OU blogger.
