Cohort news: winners and blog post timing

Posted in Updates tagged , , at 10:05 am by maf

Two items today.

First, a shout-out congratulations to Earl Edmunds and Melissa Payne.  They each won GAIT scholarships this year.  This is a statewide competition, so we are proud.   Last year, we had a winner as well – Aimee Grigsby, now an alum.  Congratulations to Earl and Melissa!

Second, a mundane follow-up to an in-class request:  A couple of times, students have requested that I check the timing on when each blogpost arrives in your reader or in your email.  The problem seems to be that some hours elapse between my posting and its arrival.  Now, there’s little I say that is all that urgent.  But, I wanted to follow up to satisfy my own curiosity. Unfortunately, I can’t find an option anywhere that controls this.  In our case, the problem could be at WordPress, at Feedburner, or within your own reader options.  I simply can’t find which or where.

If anyone knows, and/or could point me in the right direction, that would be great.  In the meantime, I’m scratching my head about this.
