Happy birthday TN Team blog!

Exactly one year ago today, the TN Team Blog was born. So today we're celebrating the blog's first birthday in our offices with cookies AND brownies (for the full debate, see here). In addition, we wanted to take a look back at some of our favorite posts over the past year. Enjoy!

Liz's Favorite: "Funny Flowchart: Do you have Bieber Fever?"

This was Tim's masterpiece way back in June. Not sure if you have the fever? You need this quiz.

Tim's Favorite: "Showdown: Crazy Ballpark Food vs. the Nutritionist"

This was one of our very first posts. Tim and I are still trying to plan a road trip to go get some delicious pulled pork pierogi stackers.

Mike's Favorite: "Athletes in local commercials = embarrassing"

"I have a video production background, so my love for this post comes mainly from the Larry Bird commercial. As you might know, Larry is standing in front of a blue screen, which is used to create a background behind a person while they're speaking or acting. I like to imagine that the producers intended to use the screen to show some kind of snazzy imagery while Bird was giving his endorsement, but weren't able to get it to work on the day of production. They had Larry booked, though, so they couldn't change the shoot location on such short notice. The other commercials featured have just as much fail to them; that dance scene in the Odgen spot is just so random." — Mike

Allison's Favorite: "Video: 5 Cyber Monday shopping tips"

"This special video blog post has everything: Action, intrigue, heartbreak, crates of pears. So even though I really enjoy looking at pictures of Jimi Hendrix in a fanny pack, I'd have to say that the Cyber Monday blog post is my all-time-favorite from the past year." — Allison

Danielle's Favorite: "Bring Back the Pack: A not-so-true history of the fanny pack"

"I especially liked the post about the not-so-true history of the fanny pack because it was hilarious! The images of famous (or infamous) historical figures wearing fanny packs cracked me up!" — Danielle

Erin's Favorite: "These funny Bruins commercials will make you a Bruins fan"

"These are hilarious commercials that appeal to both hockey and non-hockey fans. Gotta love it. Close runners-up: 'Bring Back the Pack: Awesome fanny packs photo gallery' (come on, obviously just because it's awesome and the pics are funny...and you know I'm a life-long fanny pack supporter) and 'What people are talking about this week: One Direction' (as much as I wanted to hate them, I somehow am now their fan club president...not literally, but you know what I mean)." — Erin

What's your favorite post from our first year? And how long do YOU think a blog-year is? Tell us in the comments!

The TN Team Blog’s top posts of 2011

Best of 2011

As 2011 winds down, I thought it would be fun to look back upon our first year of blogging here at TN and see which posts readers liked the most. So, based on various social media and Google analytics data, here are the best posts of 2011:

Most comments: Win Free Concert Tickets!
What concert do you NEED to see?

This one doesn’t surprise me, since people love free stuff and all you had to do was comment on the post with the concert you just HAD to see and you’d be entered to win! Still, it’s good to know people like our contests…makes us want to do more in 2012!

Most Stumbleupon views: Daniel Radcliffe: J. Pierrepont Finch vs. Harry Potter

I did not expect this one to take off like it did, but my comparison between the two major characters that have been portrayed by Daniel Radcliffe got almost 9,000 views on Stumbleupon! We never did figure out the ultimate winner of this showdown…

Bieber Fever Flowchart

Most Facebook likes: Funny Flowchart: Do you have Bieber Fever?

This is one of my personal favorites, and apparently it was also a favorite for the Facebookers among you. Not sure if you have the Fever or not? Take our handy dandy quiz! What’s better than a flowchart? (click the image to enlarge the flowchart)

Most page views: 17 funny yet possibly effective pickup lines

This one came from one of our questions during the blog kickoff contest way back in May. One of our readers suggested the post, and we made it happen. I really enjoyed these random Friday-ish posts.

Runners-up:

Before They Were Famous: YouTube All-Stars

This one appeared in second place for a few of our metrics, so I wanted to make sure I mentioned it. Check it out for some crazy flashbacks from some of your favorite celebrities.

Halloween is approaching: vampires vs. werewolves

Who doesn’t love vampires and werewolves? Or at least debating which one could take the other one in a fight?

Happy Fourth of July! Best things about the July 4th holiday

This topical post from July 4 made it into the top 10 out of over 125 blog posts for the year. Not bad, Tim!

Which blog post was your favorite of 2011? What would you like to see in 2012?
