A few months ago, the blog team had an idea; we wanted to open up the IMA blog to a member of the public in order to present an ‘outside’ perspective of the Museum. After a little brainstorming, the “So You Think You Can Blog” contest was born. Dozens of potential bloggers submitted to the contest. 5 finalists were chosen. And our blog readers chose 1 winner – Katie Neville. Congratulations!
THANK YOU to all our blogger candidates. It was fascinating to read your perspectives on the museum experience. We really appreciate your willingness to participate and share.
THANK YOU to all of our blog readers that voted. The poll got record-breaking participation. In fact, on Wednesday, March 10, our Web site received the most hits in a single day in IMA history. Votes were cast from as far away as the Netherlands (27 votes) and China (17 votes). We even had 3 votes from Trinidad and Tobago.
OK, so that’s it for now! The NEW IMA blogger has been crowned. Ms. Neville will be joining the team this April and we’re looking forward to what she has to say. Until then, we’ll be working on a new blog contest…Stay tuned!
Oh, oh and Katie – Expect an email from the Blog Team today. We’re excited to have you on board!
