1000 Posts at Google Earth Blog

Just this week, Google Earth Blog (GEB) crossed the 1000 posts mark! That’s 1000 posts since August of 2005. It’s been a lot of work, but I really enjoy covering what’s been going on with Google Earth. It surprises me, with all the time I’ve spent doing this, that it continues to be interesting and exciting to see all the new capabilities and new content available. And, I see no signs of the pace slowing down. This is my first blog. I started it as an experiment to learn about blogging, and it’s turned into a career. Special thanks to the Google Geo Team, my fellow bloggers in the geospatial arena, my ad sponsors, Google Adsense, and most importantly – all of the GEB readers! A special note of thanks goes to Adsense, which is a truly valuable service which keeps many bloggers dedicated to their work. I’m planning to continue blogging GEB at least for the next few years, if Google Earth continues like it is – and assuming my readership stays large enough. But, I do have some other little projects in the works to keep my entrepreneurial spirit happy. And, one of these days, I hope to finish a redesign for Google Earth Blog.

  11. Frank, there’s not many out there who are willing to pour as much effort and passion into it as much as I’ve seen you do. And due to what I mention, this is the reason I look forward to reading as frequently as possible.
    Google Earth Blog has become a daily ritual for me. Wake up, get the coffee on, do morning stuff, pour coffee, open up email, check Frank’s blog!
    Keep up the good, and most of all – fun – work, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing you around for quite a while.

    Thanks for all the great GE info. This has been a daily read for me for quite some time now. One wonders what the state of earth browsing will be after another 1000 posts!

  14. Frank,
    Socrates wrote that “the unexamined life is not worth living.” Your 1000-post milestone is a good time to consider and examine the valuable news and insight you provide to Google Earth users, developers, and the geo team here at Google.
    On behalf of the millions you help that I don’t know, and the hundreds that I do, thank you for making our Earth a better place for everyone.
