Wow, the end of one decade and the opening of another. Everyone's reflective and thinking about the prospective, but on this day, have a happy new year. Check out our reflections on 2009:
It's always hard to imagine what will become popular and what won't. This year, the juggernaut by far was the Clayton Homes i-House. In prior years, Digg and StumbleUpon determined the most popular articles. In 2009, these sites didn't have much of an impact on what we're doing. (Maybe we need more controversy, argumentation, or lists or something?) Readers seem to be flocking to Facebook and Twitter … in any event, take a look on the most popular of last year.
It’s that time of year and the crew here at Jetson Green would like to share well wishes for the holidays. Stay healthy, keep warm, and enjoy friends and family. We’re going to kick out some compilation articles over the next week that we hope you like. Reflect on some things and look forward. It’s been an interesting year with much to be thankful for …
Last year, Apartment Therapy started The Homies to find and reward great shelter blogs. With shelter magazines going out of business left and right, I guess it’s a good idea to reward the best shelter blogs around. So, this year, they have five categories for the The Homies: home design, home tech, kids at home, home cooking, and green home. We’re proud to have been nominated for the green home category – thanks for putting us on the list!
Are you on Twitter yet? If you're not, I hope you'll get there soon, because the conversation is good. And the sharing is getting better, too. You may have noticed we have a "retweet" button at the end of each article. It's been fun to see how far and wide topics can spread with these buttons.
Along these lines, if you're on Twitter, you may have noticed the roll out of lists. It seems like a great idea and we're going to try to get more out of it. We've built up the following lists and want to add friends of Jetson Green to the right category. Drop a comment with your Twitter handle and the appropriate list group, and we'll add you to it.
You already know that we're media sponsors for West Coast Green 2009. If the self-sustaining show home isn't enough to get you out, maybe the living walls or Innovation Pipeline will. Or maybe some of the keynote speakers, such as Ray Anderson, Gavin Newsom, Andrew Winston, or Cameron Sinclair, will get you out. Who knows?! The marketing campaign is in full swing, and we have three more reasons you should register now:
