One of the best tools the Knowledge Network offers is the blog feature. It allows users to share their experiences and stories while letting ICMA staff make users aware of local government resources and developments. Using Google Analytics, I discovered that blog posts received more than 85,000 views this past year! Here are the most popular (in terms of page views) blogs on the Knowledge Network.
