As hard as it is to believe, it was a year ago today that I put up my first tentative posts here at the Tanner Ba’. I didn’t “officially” open the doors until this past January but it is important to me not to let today slide by without thanking those who were here from the very beginning- as stilted and awkward as it may have been.
I don’t think it’s necessary to name names (you know who you are), but nevertheless, to those that have been with me since the old DUAN days- thank you. To those who followed me here from Avoiding the Drop- thank you. To those of you who’ve come aboard here in the last year- thank you. Those of you in that last group have no personal ties to me or my work so I am particularly appreciative of your support and happy that you’ve found something here to hold your interest- I’ll do my best to continue to hold your interest in the future. Finally, to the two of you I’ve been fortunate enough to meet in person- thank you. I hope there will be an opportunity to meet more of you in the future.
It is probably apocryphal, but supposedly the average lifespan of a blog is one calendar year, so if I didn’t already I will surely consider every day beyond today as a bonus. For that, I thank you.
