I just wanted to take a moment to put some thoughts together as we get close to the Thanksgiving holiday. I am headed north for the duration of the holiday (starting this afternoon actually) and probably will be on something of a media blackout to spend time with my family. And it is not like I participate in the Mizzou football threads as it is :-) But, I wanted to lay out some thoughts as I "celebrate" the first real full year of Rock M Nation.
For those of you who might now know, while not at all a Tiger fan since birth like many, I have been around the world wide web with the Tigers since the pretty young days of Tigerboard. I watched that community grow and made some great friends through it. As the years went on and more and more people joined the net, the atmosphere grew and it became tougher and tougher to cultivate good discussion without a lot of other...shall we call...noise.
So in the end, I am thankful for The Boy and rpt getting together so quickly, easily and successfully and the type of atmosphere they have been able to cultivate here. I have and shall continue to enjoy my role here at Rock M and really do hope I have been able to contribute just a little bit to what makes this site as great as it is. I am exicted for what the new year brings and will always have my eye on growing the community, but never at the risk of the community itself, which I think is in a great place right now.
So whether it is BTBS, National Threads, Big Twelvelol (or whatever the hell he called it), Weekly Facebook messages, bacon, the little Asian kid, TruFlair or Professor Chaos Daniel, I have enjoyed it all and thank you all for how each of you have enriched my life this past year.
Happy Holidays to each and every one of you
