Since my Top 5 post back in January was a hit, I thought I’d do a Top 10 post to update everyone with those interesting posts you might have missed. Some of them quite surprised me but that’s what google analytics is telling me, who am I to argue with Google? ;p
Its been a great 5 months so far and I’m hoping it will only get better. So much has happened since I started blogging, mostly exciting stuff and I encourage everybody to start blogging especially those with tons of experience and knowledge! You don’t know what you’re missing!!! You also get to meet such cool people along the way.
Just one example is I’ve recently been invited by Ari Herzog to be apart of a great new online community for advocates of smarter government at GoverningPeople.com . Since then, I’ve been exposed to a lot of great bloggers on government that I wouldn’t have known otherwise! Ari himself writes for Mashable and Huffington Post. He’s also a featured blogger at Social Media Today. He’s a rock star to social media geeks like me – his twitter is @ariherzog. You must check GoverningPeople.com if you want to keep up with interesting techy govvy type stuff from around the world.
I will however be slowing down a bit to concentrate on analyzing all the data I’ve received over the months and writing up my mammoth 100,000 words PhD thesis. :s So to celebrate the five month anniversary of this blog, here’s my Top 10 post of all time. Enjoy!

Ok, now back to thesis writing!
