It’s been eight years since the first post here on Blogging Blue.
Back then, the blog was just me and a few readers (most of whom were my immediate family), but since then it’s become much more than that. Though we’ve had some fits and starts along the way, I’m really proud of what Blogging Blue has become, and I’m proud to be included in an amazing group of bloggers here in Wisconsin – folks like the group at Cognitive Dissidence, Political Heat, Monologues of Dissent, blue cheddar, Uppity Wisconsin, The Political Environment, Wisconsin Soap Box, and Caffeinated Politics, among others. I’ve long believed that Wisconsin’s bloggers are some of the best around, and I’m thrilled to be a part of that group.
Most importantly, I’d like to thank all of you who’ve made Blogging Blue what it is today, from all of our current contributors (Ed, Steve, Joanne, and Nancy) to our former contributors, not to mention all of you who read the blog and contribute so much to the debate through your comments. You all have made this a truly enjoyable experience, and it’s because of you that I look forward to doing this for eight more years.
