The Weekly began as a "monthly" in 1997 under the guidance of Founding Editor John Helie, and over time became a bi-weekly and then weekly publication under the leadership of Editors John Ford and Jim Melamed.
The Mediate.com Weekly offers Mediate.com's latest articles, news, blogs and resources and is available for Free. Over 15 years, more than 1,000 authors have contributed to The Mediate.com Weekly, making it the favored place for our field's ‘out loud’ thinking and sharing of best practices. Mediate.com is proud of it’s role in nurturing the field of ideas and supporting new areas of practice.
Creating this network and helping to distribute this information is a cherished accomplishment. Mediate.com's relationship with authors continues to grow and adapt with the times. In 2000, we added the ‘comments’ feature that allows readers to interact with authors and other readers. In 2007, we started our now popular Featured Blogs and Mediation Today features.
We memorialized the publication of the 200th Issue of The Mediate.com Weekly approximately 2 years ago (see article). This included the compilation of a rather impressive array of testimonials about the Weekly and Mediate.com's role in the growth of mediation.
Take note of these resources that summarize Mediate.com's valuable offerings:site statistics show nearly 14,000 daily visitors to Mediate.com, with an average visit of over 25 minutes! With over 5,000 posted articles, people come to Mediate.com because they find Mediate.com in Google and other search engines. Once people get to Mediate.com they find lots of valuable information, including the most utilized Mediator Directory on the planet. The results include a better educated public and profession and the elevated use of mediation services.
We are looking forward to our 400th, 500th and 600th issues.
