Anniversary thoughts

I was reminded over the weekend that this past Thursday marked the second anniversary of this weblog-it was our "Blogaversary." In two years, we've gone through some thin times-there was a period where I posted only voice blogs for awhile. No matter what happened, though, I was determined to keep this blog going and to contribute in some small, meager, and perhaps insignificant way to the marketplace of ideas on the internet. I saw that the net was becoming an increasingly valuable political and social tool and I wanted to be a part of what was happening.

IN the last two years, my life has seen a number of dramatic changes. I started this blog off the cuff one day in the wake of the divisions still rattling the country after the 2004 Election. Since that time, Nicole and I have returned to Tennessee together to settle and live, I flirted seriously with the idea of running for public office (I even filed), and that is something I am still contemplating doing, we bought a home, and the little blog I thought would be nothing more than insignificant drivel has gotten me something of a reputation, both good and ill, in the blogosphere. None of that could have happened if not for those of you who take the time to read my thoughts on a daily basis.

I want to thank loyal readers and listeners over the last two years for giving me the opportunity to grace your cumputer screen with my thoughts and ideas. I hope that I am somehow as much a blessing to you as you have been to me.

For those in the mood for nostalgia, here is the first post to this blog, made at Cincinnati November 16th, 2004.
