Today is this blog's first blogiversary and so I've spent this week honoring some people who have been in front of the line, leading the dance and keeping us on beat. Because I sure didn't get here alone!
But without a doubt — the biggest thanks go to you. The people who come here to teach, talk, ask and share.
Anniversaries are, by their nature, about numbers. Technorati rankings, subscribers, etc are important but what I'm really proud of it are the numbers we've generated together this year.
There's not one thing on this list I could have done alone. I am so honored and grateful that you've been a part of it all.
