Over Labor Day weekend in 2011, I started the Municipal Minute blog as a way to educate local government officials and employees about legal issues relevant to municipalities and other government entities. My first post, Tweeting into Trouble, was published on September 3, 2011. While it had only 82 views, it was a great start and the content of that post is still relevant today. Now, 4 1/2 years and exactly 1000 posts later, the blog's name and mission remain unchanged. The side benefit is that the education on local government law has not been one-sided - I've learned just as much as my readers.
I can't tell you how grateful I am for all of you who read the blog, whether via Twitter, RSS or other reader, email, or otherwise, whether you started with me 1000 posts ago or are a brand new reader. Thanks so much for tuning in, and I hope you stick around for 1000 more posts.
And, let's not forget the other important celebration happening today - Happy St. Patrick's Day!
