Yay! Thanks for supporting our blog [updated]

Update: For the second year in a row, we won a commendation - effectively second place - in the Social Buzz Awards' best blog category.

Good news - for the second year in a row, our blog has been nominated for best blog in the Social Buzz Awards. (We received a commendation at last year's awards.)

By visiting and reading our blog, sharing stories on Twitter and Facebook, you've had a big effect and are big reasons we're nominated. Our application for the award concerned the way our blog and social media highlight our organisation. 

Some key stats from the past year (from mid-2014) of our blog's traffic include:

  • a 122% increase in blog traffic, which helped boost overall website traffic by 38% 
  • creating thousands of new social media connections

The winners of awards will be announced this Thursday, 27 November.

In any case, your reading and sharing are huge factors in the blog's nomination. Thank you.

Feel free to keep your fingers crossed between now and awards time on Thursday. I'm starting . . . now.
