Fusing journalism and TB – telling the stories as they are

2011 in review

with 2 comments

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,600 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Well, the test is over and its time to see the results. For friends of JATB, the results are not too bad. 6600 views for a niche blog such as this! Some insights as well… Among the most viewed posts were one on diagnosis, another on why TB does not make news, and the third one which was in a regional language. Does it reveal some lessons? For me it does – and I intend to give readers what they seem to want most. As for the rest, click on the link above and see for yourself.

What the annual report did not reveal is that we are also an award winning blog and the WHO, through StopTB Partnership has awarded us the StopTB Award for Excellence in Reporting on TB – 2011. JATB was also invited to the International Childhood Tuberculosis Meeting 2011 held in Stockholm to speak on the lessons to be learnt from a health journalist! The sector has been more than encouraging and we intend to keep their faith in us and this blog!
