1,000th Post!

The San Jose Blog hits a huge milestone today. This is our one thousandth post! This is also a special number because it represents roughly the number of page views we get every day. Not too shabby for a niche blog devoted to people that love San Jose. This is certainly more than ever expected when the blog launched mid-2009 and proves there are a lot of people out there that are as excited about this city as we are.

To celebrate, today we're launching our new logo. This was designed by the talented Brian Jensen, who also does work for Content Magazine. You can check out his site over here. Please give him a call if you ever need design work, he's fantastic! We're also going with a cleaner template that dramatically increases the speed of the site (especially on Chrome).

Thanks for reading and continuing to make this blog a success. If you ever feel like contributing posts please don't hesitate to reach out. We're looking for more bloggers, especially someone interested in covering local music. 

San Jose is hitting an inflection point, and you're going to see a lot of great things happening over the next 20 years in terms of development, culture, arts, sports, and transportation. We'll look forward to documenting these changes and contributing any way we can to make the city a better place. Cheers, and hope you'll stick around for the next 1,000 posts!


  1. Looks great!! I think I may know someone who may be able to help with local music. I'll give them the heads-up.

  2. Congrats! Love the new logo. Have you posted about the408K run from HP Pavilion to Santana Row yet? I plan to run this.

  3. Great work, Josh, and keep it up! We really appreciate your efforts!


  4. Congratulations! Love the new graphic!

    Heres the top 3 from my wishlist of things for downtown san jose:

    1. A michelin rated restaurant.
    2. An intimate music venue with character that draws big acts. (california theater, I'm looking at you).
    3. A high quality dessert place open late.

    If a city like oakland can have these I see no reason why san jose cant.
