As the new calendar year begins, it’s a good time to look back at all the accomplishments, as well as all the areas of improvement, to ensure that the next 365 days are just as good, if not better, than the previous.
One accomplishment from 2012 would have to be the continuous success of the DIS-TRAN Blog.
For me, the best part about writing each blog is that, as I’m sharing valuable information with others, I’m also learning too. And I couldn’t have done it without the participation and help from all of the employees here who have taught me so much.
So with that said, here’s a recap of some of the 2012 blog articles that seemed to make the biggest impact among our readers.
