Community Tip:  Blog Idea - Share What You’ve Learned in a Year or a Decade 

Did you learn something new this year? Have things changed in how you use and understand GIS in a decade? Celebrate and reflect on your knowledge in the community by writing a blog about it. It can be instructional, such as key lessons learned on how you transitioned from using one programming language to another, or maybe you have a great story on how your career progressed, and you want to share tips for others. If you need guidance on how to structure your content, see Best Practices for Writing Content in the GeoNet Resource Hub.
