Dear TheCityFix Readers,

Happy 2011!

On behalf of EMBARQ, the producer of this blog, I want to thank you so much for your continued support. Over the past year, we published 495 posts and received more than 240,000 visits from people around the world, mostly in the United States, India, Canada. (In case you missed it, here’s a round-up of our most popular posts from 2010.) Whether you found us for the first time by searching Google or visited frequently through our syndication on sites like Planetizen, thanks for coming back!

We’re also grateful for your enthusiasm, your thoughtfulness, and at times, your healthy dose of skepticism in your feedback. Our most commented posts this year included “FedEx Makes More Efficient Deliveries with Zero Emissions Electric Bikes” (58 comments), “Buses Spread the Love in Copenhagen” (38 comments), and “Guangzhou’s BRT: Revolutionizing Perceptions of Bus Travel in China” (23 comments). Let’s keep the conversation going!

As we move into the New Year, we want to know: Who are you? Why do you read TheCityFix? What issues do you care about? How can we improve our coverage or site design? These are the questions we seek to answer in the coming weeks, as we conduct our First Annual Reader Survey. Please take a moment to answer 10 simple questions. Your feedback is very important to us. Your information will be kept private and anonymous.

As always, we welcome contributions from volunteer writers. Please review our editorial guidelines before submitting your first post. We also hire a full-time blogger every quarter. Check out the “Careers” page on EMBARQ.org for updated job listings.

And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter or be our friend on Facebook.

Best wishes for the year ahead,
Erica Schlaikjer
TheCityFix Managing Editor
