I just realized that it has been one year since I sat down to create a blog. I named The Gridbook Blog after the old grid-lined notebooks I used for collecting my thoughts when I was in college. It has been fun and terrifying throwing personal thoughts out into the world to be read by friends and strangers alike. Between the essays on The Gridbook Blog and Gridbook Notes (this personal blog with the various news items from my life) I've sent out almost exactly a post a week over the last year, which is pretty good considering my work schedule.
Thanks to everyone who has read, commented, and corrected. These blogs have been a fascinating interaction. I hope next year goes as well. Thanks for reading.
