Top 5 Blog Themes for 2021

From L to R: UC CIO Van Williams poses with his 3 sons, UC employees distribute supplies, and UC President Michael V. Drake

By Yvonne Tevis and Van Williams. This year, for the annual “Top 5 Blog” retrospective, we decided to take the twenty stories that got the most views and find general themes—which actually reflect what you like to read about. It’s worth mentioning that there were three articles that got significantly more views than any others! They were, in order:

These three articles fit easily into one of five general themes.

  1. We want to work better, smarter. Articles that describe different ways to do our jobs have always been a blog favorite.
  2. We learn by hearing how others do their jobs. UC IT folks really value peer expertise. That’s a cornerstone of our annual UC Tech Conference too.
  3. We like to hear from our leaders. No surprise in a way, and this is a stellar line-up.
  4. We care about diversity. Diversity is a value for the UC IT workforce.
  5. We just like the shout outs! Everyone likes to be recognized.

    Twenty great stories, five great themes. Do you have a story, an idea along one of these themes? Send it in to Be part of the 2022 Top 5.
