1 Year Anniversary of SquaredPeg.com!!

Posted by Brad J. Ward | Posted in Blogging, Higher Education, Marketing, Recruitment, Thoughts | Posted on 09-05-2008


I’m excited to say that it has been 1 year since SquaredPeg started! It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year. We began over on a wordpress.com platform, even though the SquaredPeg.com domain was purchased from Day 1.  In preparation for the BlogHighEd.org launch, I moved us over to SquaredPeg.com and have been here since.

Analytics on the first year?  142 posts, 465 comments, nearly 30,000 visits, almost 300 RSS and email subscribers, and a ton of new friends. To me, the last stat is definitely the most important. I’m grateful for all of the information I’ve learned and all of the people I’ve met in the past year, through comments, Twitter, and conferences. You all are truly a special group of people to me. I’ll keep pouring my time into the site as long as you continue to read and engage with me about the content.

And for the most recent SquaredPeg news….. I’m flying solo now.  After a buyout in early August from the other writers, I am hoping to take the site in a new direction and be able to brand it more personally than the team blog atmosphere offered.

Here’s to another year! Thanks for coming along.

Congrats Brad! I second Andrew’s comment. Keep up the great work!

So is this new theme like a blog-aversary special or permanent? (Mike I love that word)

That’s funny you went to solo and I went from solo to teamed. Rock it BOI!

Congrats. I like the new theme as well.
