GFC Turns 100!

posted by snekse
And it seems like we just turned two...

A slightly different number we're celebrating today. This is our 100th post! We're not quite on pace to catch Becks & Posh, but that's setting the bar a little high anyway.

I just wanted to send a couple of thank yous.

First, thanks to our readers, with an extra special thanks those who leave comments or send us emails, anonymous or otherwise. I encourage more comments and emails. I think they improve the overall usefulness of the site. Everyone has an opinion. Don't be afraid to share it here.

And most importantly, I wanted to thank my family, immediate and extended, for putting up with "wait, don't eat that yet, I need to get a picture" and all my other obsessions that allow me to keep this site running. Though I may not always say it, it means a lot to me.

And with that...

Because we've picked up a number of new subscribers recently, we decided to provide links back to some of our most popular posts of the past 100 to catch everyone up to speed. They're listed in chronological order so you can stop reading when they start to look really familiar. Oddly, about half of them are from 2007.
