Yesterday was by far the biggest I have had on Blip, with a record number of views and comments.  My 1000th blip was a big deal for me personally, but this wonderful community made it a very big event.  Thank you to all who viewed my journal, left comments, gave me hearts, and to my new subscribers.  I'm attempting to thank each of you for your comment, but it may take several days.
