At our recent monthly blogger user group meeting, Dawn Bott reminded us that our second anniversary of blogging was approaching. Instead of celebrating with a huge campaign for the “Blogger of the Year” like we did last year, we are celebrating with a reflective post.
About two and a half years ago, the DECO blog’s concept was just a glimmer in Bobbie Laur and my eyes. And now, we have:
- Over 36,000 views
- 254 posts since our launch (September 1, 2009)
- And a consistent group of more than 10 bloggers
While our blog topics vary greatly, we took a look at what posts have been most popular. Here are some of the most popular posts on the blog since our start in 2009.
- The Great Debate: IT Degree vs. IT Certification vs. Industry Experience
- Can the iPad replace my laptop?
- Lessons Learned: Creating a KML-Enabled ArcGIS Server Map Service
- CGIS launches an exciting new way to view shallow water habitat data
- Economic Stimulus + Towson University
- Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Approved Training
- PureBang Games and My Hopeful Journey Announced as the Winners of TowsonGlobal’s Business Plan Competition
- Orioles Opening Day: What’s the Economic Impact of Baseball in Baltimore?
So, you’re probably wondering… what do we have planned for our third year? The most exciting part of year three is the addition of several new bloggers.
- Tim Brooks will take a look at cutting edge technology that everyone is curious about.
- Kelsey Beckett will be blogging away about community engagement activity that is happening at Towson University.
- Ashley Buzzeo will focus on how the use of GIS is impacting how the state of Maryland does business.
- And Jenn Lake will provide an interesting perspective on everything marketing.
Here’s to year two. Happy blogging!
