Dear Sir / Madam / Parents / Students,
English Blog was started on 5th September 2011. Since then English Blog has been providing study materials for Kerala Syllabus classes 5,6,7,8,9,10,11 and 12. We have also tried to include materials for Std. 1,2,3 and 4 (though not successful). We were one of the first of educational blogs that published SCERT First Term and Second Term question bank in 2011. SCERT First Term question bank was password protected yet we made it available for the general public when the time of secrecy was over. Thus we started providing study materials for Kerala Syllabus Malayalam, Hindi, Social Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths and I.T.other than English.
It is 2 years and 8 months now..... What made me write this post is the surprising fact that 95% of the English Teachers of our state do not know that there exists such a blog for their help. I realised this when I went to the valuation camp at Kottayam, this year. There were around 200 teachers there but not more than 15 knew about English Blog !!!!!!!!! From a person who visited all the valuation camps I came to know that English Blog is popular in some northern districts like Malappuram and Palakkad.. From the rest of the districts very few enquired about it.
What adds to my surprise is the reality that if an English teacher searches something related to any of the chapters in our English Texts, the Google will display English Blog in the first 10 search results. This being the fact if there are a huge number of English teachers who do not know about the existence of such a blog for them. That means, either they don't search for materials in the internet or they are indifferent to such a blog.
Then the question arises... Who are we blogging for ? What is the use of running such a blog spending money from my pocket ?
