It’s the 100th day of our blog and, not entirely coincidentally, our 100th post as well! Calls for a celebration, don’t you think? So here are some fun facts.
We started this blog within 24 hours of commenting, “It’s a good thing we don’t have a blog or we’d never get anything done.”
We initially looked at names involving blogarithm but they were all taken. Well, maybe not all, but enough that we didn’t feel nearly as original as with 360. (Of course, that was before we knew that CNN also had a blog named 360, so I think we’re not so much about uniqueness as existence. Ba dum.)
Our most popular post has been the math jokes post So, a horse walks into a bar….
Our favorite posts to write were:
- Batman: Yes, I’m a Nerd
(though he also really liked the humor post above)
- TwoPi: The best place to buy PowerBall Lotto tickets?
(but his favorite paragraph to write was the first one in Sudoko Lotto)
- Ξ: The Rubik’s Hypercube
(but I’m also thrilled whenever I find something for the Math Mistakes category)
The most common posts to come up under search engines are Is EZ-Pass used to catch speeders? (It seems like every day someone searches for a variation of “EZ-Pass and speeding”. Apparently this is a common concern.). The Friday Software Reviews and Math Mindreading also get hits regularly. Lately, too, these posts on polygons have been showing up when people search for “real life polygons” and “real life heptagons”.
- “geogebra software review” gets this
- “sudoku lotto” gets this
- “jeopardy hyperbolic paraboloid” gets this
- “fashion with mobius” gets this
- “fabulous math” doesn’t link to us at all. But we wish it did.
