Belated happy blogiversary, Dave! Your blog was one of the first ones I got to know when I started in early 2004, and I’ve never stopped reading. I’m always impressed by how much work you put in doing so many other blogs as well, and how encouraging you are to others. #24 regarding positive aspects of blogging is very true for me too. The connections and friends help to keep me going when sometimes I feel as if I’m just repeating myself.
