The Best Math Blogs selected the 50 Best Blogs for Math Majors, and I am pleased that Tanya Khovanova’s Math Blog is number two. Since they did not explain their criteria, I suspected that it might be according to the number of Google hits. To double check, I Googled “math blog” and once again my blog was number two.

This might be the right moment to acknowledge the others involved with my blog. First, Sue Katz, my writing teacher and editor, corrected the English in most of my posts. Now I do not “do” mistakes in English any more, I make them.

My sons, Alexey and Sergei, are a huge support. Sometimes my poor kids have to listen endlessly to my latest idea, until I am ready to write about it. And then they will even read the final piece, and continue to encourage me.

But the most important motivators are you, my readers. Your comments, your personal emails and your feedback keep me writing.
