Wow, what a day. It's amazing how the community grabbed hold of SilverDragon's "10 things" suggestion
and ran it from one end zone to the other. People have been remarkably open and I've learned a lot about not only the people writing about themselves, but the community as a whole. It really reaffirms to me that this site is something I want to be a part of. As soon as I finish up the recaps for today I'll be writing one of my own.
Apparently there was some sort of sporting event yesterday, and a lot of media attention was paid to a subterranean woodland rodent for some reason I have never been able to comprehend. I have about 100 posts to recap though, so I'd better get to it. If I may make a minor suggestion to the community regarding this phenomenon, why not add a link to your "ten things" article on your sidebar? I think it would be great to be able to go to someone's page in the future and instantly be able to find out a little more about them, even after the 10 things meme has passed us by.
I'd love to add something personal to each of your blogs (I did read each and every one of them) but this is going to be late enough as it is. My apologies.
