It’s our 6-month anniversary! Come join us for a look back over our first half-year of existence, and tell us what you want us to cover in the future.
Six months ago (technically, six months ago yesterday) I published the first Wide Teams blog post. Since then I’ve interviewed dozens of remote workers, made a lot of awesome new friends, and confirmed that a lot of people are interested in the subject of geographically dispersed teams. We’ve even been featured in the Wall Street Journal!
Some stats as of today, for the record:
- 82 posts, and 122 comments.
- 21 episodes of the Wide Teams podcast.
- 119 RSS feed subscribers.
- 227 Â people follow @wideteams on Twitter.
- 37 Facebook fans.
Here are our five most popular posts over the last six months:
- Ironically, the most popular post was Wide Teams are Stagnant Teams, a contrarian take highlighting some of the challenges that face geographically distributed teams.
- Photo Day! suggested that just as office workers keep a photo of their family on their desk, people who work from home should keep a photo of their dispersed team within easy view.
- 5 myths of remote work set out to debunk some of the most popular misconceptions about working in a distributed team.
- In the Wide Teams Bootstrap Guide Part 4, I talked about the importance of having a way to express your “virtual presence” through the course of the work day.
- Landing a Job on a Remote Team is just what it sounds like – a guide to getting noticed and getting hired by a company that is friendly to remote workers.
I hope you’ll help me celebrate this milestone by spreading the word:
Thanks to you, the Wide Teams readers, for making the first six months a success! The next six months are going to be even better.
Stick around, we’re just getting started!
