Happy Birthday to my Blog

Today is the one-year anniversay of this blog. So much has happened; I've gone from a boring format to a really cool green one (yay green!), I've learned a bit about HTML, thus all the neat links off to the side (check 'em out, they're worth it), I've become a Wikipedia contributor (ok, once, but it still counts), I've got two other sub-blogs tied to this one, I've been linked to by the mighty Small Dead Animals and The Curt Jester, I've engaged in debates with people from around the country, and in some cases, around the world. This will be my 176th post (making it one post every 2.07 days on average), and since I started tracking site visits in May I've had over 1800 visitors - about 20 per day now. [As my brother-in-law once pointed out, since my blog is my homepage, a good portion of those visitors is just me stroking my ego.]

But check out this map of the locations of my most recent 100 visitors. Yes, I have family in Saskatchewan and Alberta, and many good friends in Ontario. But who the heck are all those Yanks?

I'm not trying to toot my own horn. I'm just impressed at how connections can happen over this new medium called the interwhatchamacallit.

So as I embark on a whole new year of posts, I pledge to you, my dear, earnest readers, to keep expanding on this virtual communion, and never to lose sight of the real communion I have behind and without it.

God bless you all!
