About sustainablog and contacting us

sustainablog started in July, 2003, as an experiment in “writing to learn”: author Jeff McIntire-Strasburg, then an assistant professor of English, decided to apply some of the concepts he preached to his students to his budding interest in sustainability. The rest, as they say, is history: sustainablog is now one of the longest-running green blogs on the web. In October, 2014, sustainablog concentrated its focus on waste issues: reducing it, reusing, recycling, or upcycling it.

sustainablog has received mentions in the San Francisco Chronicle, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Sacramento News & Review, Review of Policy Research, and on dozens of blogs and sites around the web.

    Due to the new Google Panda release, some websites who use “unnatural linking strategies” have been penalized. I have been asked by my company to have links to removed from places on the web that have little to do with the company business, which is developing construction software.

    I am sory to have to ask you to do this, I know it is a pain, but can you plase remove the link to from your website. In this case it is on this page: in the anchor text “contractor software”.

    I would really appreciate your assistance. In doing so, perhaps your site will be resistant to the new Google Panda update that penalizes sites.

    Thank you.
