Jetson Green Celebrates Two Year Blog Birthday, Starts Green Gift Giveaway!


I teased this earlier in the week, but today — July 23, 2008 — is the two year blog birthday for Jetson Green.  Seriously.  It’s actually been two years and we’ve been going strong every day, having a dang good time in the process.  In the tradition of the blogosphere, we’re celebrating the blog birthday, but we decided to use the ocassion to celebrate you, the reader.  We appreciate your feedback, emails, comments, tips, and everything you bring to the Jetson Green community.  It’s tough to say thanks in a meaningful way for giving us another good year, but here’s how we’ll try:

We’re throwing a party and giving out some great green gifts. 

Like our book giveaways in the past, you just need to drop a comment in the article for each green giveaway that you want to participate in.  By all means, participate in all of them!  As always, though, we’re required to have these legal giveaway terms.  Giveaways will be open until midnight mountain standard time on Friday, July 25, 2008.  After that, I’ll pick a random number for each article, which number corresponds to the comments in the order received, and I’ll email the winners for a physical address.  If you win and email your address back to me, your green gift will be in the mail next week. 

Here’s what we’re giving away. 

At the same time, if you have any suggestions about anything, feel free to say something below or email us at [email protected]  How about another excellent year?

    The 23rd of July is my birthday… 23Jul1952… guess I am 54 years older than this blog, however been studying the ways of Mother Earth for a long time as well… It only makes sense that one who lives on the only known inhabited planet would want to take care of the home on which one lives.

    Hi JetsonGreen! I just found out about you from another comment-leaver who was outraged that you were not included on’ Top 50 Architecture Blogs. The comment-leaver said that yours was the best green architecture blog out there, so of course I had to come right over and check you out!

    I think you’re cool, so I encouraged my readers at to come on over and visit you too.

    • Preston

      ArchitectureAddiction – thanks for dropping by. We like to be included in lists, but sometimes the website just flies under that radar. We’re okay with that so long as we keep making a difference where it counts. Keep in touch!

      Thanks Siel, Marc, Timothy, KRS-10, Victoria, Robyn, and Shea!

  • Robyn
