Browneph On the Past Year

I’m not one for new year’s resolutions, but a few days into 2007 it’s refreshing, humbling and humorous to look back at the small bit of progress we’ve made with this collective blog venture. I’m having difficulty wrapping my mind around the fact that it’s been almost a complete year since this all started as no more than a modest escape from habitual cubicle culture, and in that period of time it has become so much more.

Between then and now this blog has become a tool that has afforded us some great opportunities and insight. We’ve broken bread with emerging artists, introduced ourselves to accomplished artists, met fellow bloggers (see: here and here), had our work featured on some of our favorite spots on the web, and virtually debated the hot topics of the day on a regular basis -- all the while amassing a mighty sum of $23.55 I might add!

All this is a testament to two things in particular: our genuine desire to connect with those of progressive and lighthearted mind frames and the power of the web to make it happen. No matter how familiar I am with the process of virtually connecting and exchanging information with people around the world, it’s a truly remarkable experience, the power of which is reinforced on a daily basis.

As I reflect on the new year, I offer two of my favorite posts written by yours truly. Enjoy. Remember. Reflect. Keep reading. Keep responding.
