CDC - NIOSH Science Blog – 200 and Counting!

200 and Counting!

Categories: Media
This is the 200th post to the NIOSH Science Blog.  In our nearly seven years of posting we have covered topics ranging fromnanotechnology to noise-induced hearing loss for workers at the World Cup.  Since our first post in 2007, the blog has received 1,155,680 views. Our top five most popular blogs are: N95 Respirators and Surgical Masks;Preventing Back Injuries in Health Care SettingsWorkplace StressFrequency of Respirator Fit Testing; and Truck Driver Safety and Health.
The blog has provided NIOSH researchers with an opportunity for two-way communication with our readers in a format not previously available.  In fact, the blog has received over 3,400 comments as of this posting. Through the blog we have received:
We started the blog in the fall of 2007.  At that time we were the only external blog at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention—now there are 14.  Not surprisingly, blogging was initially met with some resistance internally.  What was once a new- fangled social media outlet with an unclear application to NIOSH research is now a routine aspect of communication planning at NIOSH.
As we look to the future of blogging at NIOSH we would like to hear from you.  What do you think of the NIOSH Science Blog?  What topics would you like to see covered?   What do you view as barriers to commenting on the blog?  We look forward to your comments.
