It was one year ago, on June 7, 2009, that my fellow editors and I published our very first blog post. When we did, I don’t think any of us were sure that the blog would still be going strong (or even going at all, for that matter) one year later… but it is! Since then, we’ve published 355 more posts, attracted over 100 daily subscribers, and now get somewhere from 150-200 visits per day on average (and at least a quarter of our regular visitors come from outside the U.S.).
On behalf of my fellow editors, I wanted to mark this moment — hopefully just the first of many virtual birthdays — by thanking you all for your continuing interest and support. Your expressions of appreciation and encouragement — like those in our Guestbook — have been deeply heartening. We are glad you find this site worth visiting, and we hope to be here, one year from now, continuing this rewarding and enjoyable work.
All the very best,
