Over the holiday weekend Google analytics reported that The Workers' Compensation Blog pushed past the 1 Million page view milestone since it started counting a mere 40 months ago. We thank our readers for their continued interest, our contributing authors and shared sites for their participation and Tembow, our amazing syndication service, for making this all possible.
Astonishingly, our dedicated readership is the basis of our numbers. We use NO search optimization engines (SEO) tactics or tricks. Our continued goal is to report articles of interest to the workers’ compensation community.
This is an academic not-for-profit site. We seek no ads, no sponsors and take no fees to publish articles. All requests for solicited “guest posts” for profit motivation are diplomatically and respectfully declined. In turn we offer only news of interest to our readership.
This blog evolved from an e-mailed newsletter called “Workers’ Compensation News.” On July 27, 2007 the blog was launched and began to pickup traction. aIt quickly grew a community of readers. Over the years it has evolved into a venue to provide reliable news that could be syndicated nationally through a network of separate and local communities via Tembow.
Our goal continues to provide news and analysis of interest. We want to keep the original 1911 philosophical aspirations of workers’ compensation alive. Thank you for your support through continued readership/participation/syndication.
As Will McAvoy said in HBO’s Series The Newsroom (by Alan Sorkin):
We stood up for what was right! We fought for moral reasons, we passed and struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged wars on poverty, not poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbors, we put our money where our mouths were, and we never beat our chest. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured diseases, and cultivated the world's greatest artists and the world's greatest economy. We reached for the stars, and we acted like men. We aspired to intelligence; we didn't belittle it; it didn't make us feel inferior. We didn't identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election, and we didn't scare so easy. And we were able to be all these things and do all these things because we were informed.
A Happy and Healthy New Year!
