When we started our blog with one year ago in January 2009 many things were unclear: Will it work out to subsume very different empirical fields under the heading of transnational governance? Will we manage to find enough time for blogging? Will blogging influence our research? What issues will be of greatest interest?

At least regarding the last question, our open source blogging software WordPress provides some data, which we present in form of the all-too popular end-of-the-year-listings:
