I’ve been blogging for over three years, and it’s a weekly ritual that I look forward to. Looking back at previous posts I’m in awe of how much we have grown as an organisation, what we have accomplished – big and small and the amazing people who work here.
To date we have published 174 blogs with a total of 112,460 hits – that’s quite an achievement. While the blogs are increasing in popularity, what intrigues me is the interest they are receiving from people around the world. This includes our neighbours from across the Tasman, the United Kingdom, USA, India, Japan, France, Germany and Africa. Our voice is being heard across the globe!
So what were the most popular blogs from 2014?
The top three picks are:
Building a Revolution takes us back to the early days of Project SWIFT and a glimpse into the potential SWIFT has to support, enhance and revolutionise the way we deliver our services.
Lost for Words provides an insight into the tragic case of 7-year-old Japanese girl Sakurako Uehara, who was savagely mauled by a dog. Sakurako spent many weeks at Middlemore hospital, and her story touched all of our hearts
A heroic deed shares Biace Poasa’s story – an amazing young man who works as an orderly at Middlemore Hospital. Biace helped to save a young girl’s life following a car versus pedestrian accident.
What all of these blogs have in common is the ‘human factor’ and how people rise to the occasion when put under challenging or difficult circumstances. Throughout these blogs, you will find people demonstrating compassion, humanity, courage, passion, determination and bravery.
