Happy Birthday! Google Earth Blog was first published one year ago today. A lot has happened in the last year for Google Earth, and I’ve learned a lot about blogging. Over 500 blog entries, over 1000 published comments (not counting spam), over 1000 images, and several million readers. The response from readers has been overwhelmingly positive. I hope all of you will continue reading the blog as Google Earth, and the content published by its users, continues to evolve and improve during the next year. Many thanks to the many bloggers who I’ve grown to know and who have helped me or given me ideas for improvement. In particular I want to thank the folks belonging to: OgleEarth, GoogleMapsMania, the MapRoom, GoogleSightSeeing, the Google Earth Community and its moderators, and the Google Earth Team.
