My 500th blog post… thank you for reading


My 500th blog post… thank you for reading

I can’t quite believe where the time has gone, but this article is the 500th one I have published on my blog.

Back in March 2009 I was researching the use of social media inside organisations and decided to create a blog to share the content I found, give my views and appeal for other communicators around the globe to point me towards information that would help me learn.

Rachel Miller All Things IC That desire to collate, create and share remains the purpose behind my blog today.

I wrote an article on my blog’s birthday a couple of weeks ago on what blogging for five years has taught me and shared my top blogging tips. Feedback shows readers found it useful, thank you to everyone who got in touch.

To mark reaching this 500th article milestone, I thought I’d rummage through the archives and share some of my favourites from over the years.

They are a mixed bunch in terms of topic, writers and timescale, and I hope you enjoy them.

I don’t think I’ve ever written any top 10 lists, so here goes…
