The Cube Root of One Billion

My little project, Extra Credit Life, hit its first milestone on Saturday with it’s one-thousandth page view! That’s one kiloview (1 kvw) in engineering-nerd-speak!

I’m incredibly grateful for everyone who has read and enjoyed and commented on Extra Credit Life thus far. I can’t wait to see where the next three years take me and I’m so excited to have you all along for the ride.

To celebrate one thousand views, I’d love to hear what you think. Let me know if there are topics you’ve been hoping I’d explore or if there’s a topic I’ve written about that you’d like me to expand on. Any thoughts you have are welcome!

In addition, I’m considering starting an Extra Credit Life Facebook page where I would link my posts each week and also occasionally post other relevant links. If I created the page, would you “like” it, or is Facebook so yesterday?

Thanks again for all the love. I wouldn’t have much of a blog without my readers.

  1. Congrats, Steph! I’m curious what challenges you anticipate as an engineer. It’s true there is always a right and wrong answer in math (unlike design), but do you expect there will be similar issues about how to go about problem solving? Also, for your audience base, I think Facebook is on target. 🙂

    • Hah…yes I definitely expect there will be similar issues and probably a whole different set of issues I’m not even anticipating. I talk a tiny bit about that in my post going up later this morning. But I’ll explore it more! Thanks!

  2. Congrats, Steph! I’m thrilled for you.

    As for other topics . . . I can think more on this, but something comes to mind: The realm of “group projects.” As you’re involved in more of them, let us know if it’s any different working on them in engineering/math/science classes than it was in art/liberal arts classes. Is the experience much different (people, effort, assignment structure, enjoyment)? Or are group projects more or less the same? What do you think it will be like working on a team as a professional engineer?

    Keep having fun.

    • Ohh that’s a good one. I’ve yet to delve too far into the world of group projects, but it’s coming up fast. That will probably be the subject of more than one post.

  3. 1. Well done.
    2. Game on Facebook!
    3. You know my suggestion for a future blog post and it has more to do with your observations of everyday life than it does with engineering. However, I think folks would enjoy interludes about bakery samples or hipsters. And you’re a solid enough writer to loop anything back into engineering or at least science some fashion.
    Really, great work here Steph! I love what you’ve done with the blog so far and look forward to great things to come.
