Celebrating… my first blog-o-versary!

My first post was on March 23, 2012. A year ago, I was concerned that I wouldn’t have anything to blog about. Surprisingly, my biggest challenge has been trying to blog less frequently!

Looking Backwards

What’s worth celebrating? Here are a few milestones from the past year.

  • 1 new job at Innovation Network  (hence a blog name change)
  • 2 podcasts
  • 3-hour eStudy about dashboard automation
  • 4 conference presentations at EERS and AEA
  • 45 Excel tutorials
  • 99 blog posts (67 from me on this blog; 8 on other blogs; plus 24 guest posts from 14 different colleagues)
  • 1,000+ tweets at @annkemery
  • 21,000+ blog views
  • 1,000,000+ numbers crunched
  • Infinite connections with colleagues in the evaluation blogosphere

Looking Forwards

What’s to come in the next year?

Thanks for reading! I’m glad I started blogging, and my only regret is that I didn’t start sooner. I hope to see many more evaluation blogs emerge over the next year.

      Thanks Karen! Your guest posts and your blog have really helped my blog find its way. I enjoy reading your insights about evaluation and look forward to (hopefully! fingers crossed!) co-presenting with you at the next AEA conference.

    Much congrats to you! You’ve accomplished a lot and thanks for admitting that you started this with no idea that you had anything to share. You’ve done a lot! And I was honored to be a guest blogger on your site.

    Keep it going!
