O&M Two-Year Anniversary

O&M went live 25 April 2006, exactly two years ago. Introducing ourselves to the world, we wrote:

We started this blog for two reasons. First, while there are many excellent blogs on economics, law, and public policy, there are relatively few on organization, strategy, and management, our main areas of research. Organizations and Markets hopes to help fill this gap. Second, we think we have a unique and interesting perspective on many of these issues, and we thought it would be fun to share this perspective with the world.

We may or may not be interesting (or fresh), but we think we’re still unique. While the econo-blogosphere has become thickly populated, only a few blogs focus on managerial and organizational issues. (Our blogroll includes most of our personal favorites.)

In the last two years we’ve written 1,275 posts in 32 categories (the most popular being InstitutionsManagement Theory, Methodology/Theory of Science, Strategic Management, Entrepreneurship, and, of course, Ephemera). We’ve hosted 283,822 unique visitors from dozens of countries (including, during just the last week, Slovenia, Iraq, Cameroon, Malaysia, and Guam). Thanks to our readers (students in particular), regular commentators, and former guest bloggers for their continued enthusiasm and support.

We’re planning significant changes to the site in the coming weeks. Watch this space for details!

    Yes, congrats!!

    “We’re planning significant changes to the site…”

    Sounds like you’ve got a “new look” in the works, great.

    (I hope your audience is not as wedded to your current look as orgtheory.net readers were to our old one…we got lots of seemingly angry mail about the changes we made.)
