I am grateful for all of the visitors, twitter followers, supporters, and of course sponsors that have made it possible for me to share high-quality news and articles for geoprofessionals. I look forward to another great 7 years.

Happy 6th Anniversary GeoPrac!

Six years ago today I officially launched the website! It’s been my honor to try to serve my fellow geoprofessionals over that time, providing news and articles in a format unlike any other site on the internet.  I want to take this opportunity to thank all the folks who have contributed content, provided feedback or otherwise helped over the years.  I would also like to thank all of my sponsors.  Their support compensates me for the considerable time and energy I pour into the site.  And of course, thank you to all of my readers and subscribers!

I thought it would be fun to look back at some of my favorite posts and articles over the years.  Some of them are contributed and some I wrote. So join me on a trip down memory lane and read on!

GeoPrac Turns One!

I can hardly believe it, but today marks the one year anniversary of the launch of GeoPrac! It has been a good ride so far, things haven’t exactly gone quite like I planned, but when has that ever happened? I’m grateful to all of the visitors who frequent the site and particularly to the people who have contributed an article or geonews item. I intend to do a wrapup of the most popular articles/news items of Q1 2008 and a "state of the union" type post with some thoughts about where I intend to take the site in the coming year. But I’ve just been out of gas with the newborn in the house. I’ll try to get to it this weekend.

Here’s to a good first year and many more to come! Cheers!
