A Small Anniversary

August 12, 2005 - It blew right by us like a gust of summer heat, but August 10 marked the 6-month anniversary of our patch of progressive blogdom, Facing South. Given the blog pioneers in our midst, that means we're still newbies -- although with thousands of new blogs setting forth daily, we feel older every day.
