Happy Birthday @Moodlenews! (we’re one year old)


It’s been a short 12 months since I registered Moodlenews.com (originally it was Moodlemonthly and my main intention was a monthly journal) with the goal of aggregating and sharing all the great things I was reading and learning about Moodle LMS.  Since November 12th, 2009 I’ve changed jobs, moved, traveled (to California, Key West, Texas, Pittsburgh, Maryland/DC, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York and a few other places) and have done my best to stay true to my original intent for Moodlenews.

Here are a few stats by the numbers:

Thank you for making it an awesome year.

  • Sorry I missed the congrats on the day but it is with no lesser amount of thanks and best wishes to all your hard work over the last year.

    Moodlemonthly/Moodlenews is a great resource I often recommend to new and old-hand moodlers and I will gladly continue to do so in the future.

    Happy one, here is to many more!

    Tomaz, thanks for the wishes and for helping spread the good word about Moodle. Glad that this little blog can be of benefit to the larger Moodle community.

  • Here’s wishing you at least a two-fold increase of everything in your list above in your second year.

    Dan, thanks for the wishes (I hope we can deliver on that growth). I think, in general, the release of Moodle 2.0 will be a boon for both the community and attention to Moodle worldwide. So it might just be a matter of riding that wave 🙂

  • Hi Joseph,

    Happy Birthday to you and Moodle News! I love the articles. How could I just discover this wonderful site after a whole year? I guess I never saw it advertised on moodle.org. Wonder why? The reason I found out now is because of your photo in your posts on the Moodle forums. I thought, who is this smiling guy with a while flower on his lapel. Combined with an upbeat demeanor, I figured it was someone I wanted to meet. So I clicked on your profile and ended up here.

    Congratulations on a great project! I will be watching for news for you as I attend the MoodleMoot Japan coming soon.

  • Joseph Thibault

    That smiling guy would be me! Thanks for stopping by. Also, I’d love to have someone cover the Moot Japan event; I’d be happy to publish any recaps from sessions at Moodlenews.
