The other day, I received a tweet that made me immensely happy.
@scicurious Wanted to let you know, I'm using your post on obesity & OCD as an example in the tutorial I'm teaching on science blogging!

Someone used my blog in a classroom! This gave me all sorts of warm fuzzies. I love to write for the public, and I hope that people can find me, but it’s also wonderful to be used in the classroom! It’s a sign that I’m writing at the right level, and that what I’m doing is helpful to educators as well as people who just love science.
So then I thought, you know, it’d be GREAT if I could actually keep TRACK of this.
Have you ever used my blog in the classroom? Have you used it because you liked it? Have you used it because you hate it? I figure there are arguments either way. Why did you use it? What did you use it for? Was it effective?
I would really like to know. So if you have, please drop me a line, at scicurious [at] gmail [dot] com. I’d love to hear from you!
