It's that time of year again where we look back over the past 12 months and decide what was good and what to keep and what was bad and what to scrap.

I suppose my resolution this year would be to find balance. I know it sounds cliched and yoga-centric but if you know me in person I'm a pretty happy-go-lucky optimistic, friendly dude and I'd like to transfer that energy into my often seemingly angry and rantist posts. The thing is I'm not that angry. Ok fine- maybe a little angry. But really, I am simply concerned or maybe even mindful over the shaping and molding of this planet, our people and our future. This blog has been a tremendous platform for meeting other people who are just as concerned or watchful or yeah- even angry. Although I haven't yet had the pleasure of shaking many of your hands (Michael Crawford of Bloggernista, Bil from Bilerico, Bret from Bstewart23) I do consider your 1's and 0's binary correspondence as true friendship, mentoring and camaraderie. Each of you have a special kind of balance I hope to acquire. Maybe it comes with time and wisdom and practice but you all know how to mix your emotions and concerns into the perfect op-ed cocktail. This is what I'd like for 2008.

oh and of course, lots and lots and lots of money!

Here's to 2008!

Happy Holidays, my friend. Maybe we should make our joint resolution to finally meet in person? *grins* May 2008 bring you all of your wishes and then the wisdom to realize what you truly wanted. :)

Aren't you a sweetheart!

Its really wonderful to see all of the amazing stuff that you are doing to build a stronger community and have a serious impact. You are an inspiration to an old timey queen like me.

Here's to you and me making lots of cash in 2008!

Personally, I think your words are packed with passion and brimming with the kind of brackish realism that will wake up our sleepy generation instead of simply nudging it. I look forward to 2008 and where it will bring us all. Keep up the good work.

Stupid OpenID. "blog" == "bstewart23"

Ahem. Sorry about that. OpenID totally fucked up my gratitude.

Eric, it's not possible to be more flattered than to receive a compliment from one you admire. So, thanks, man. And here's to 2008, when we WILL meet and we WILL throw our arms around each other, all bearhuggy and whatnot.

Hey hotstuff. You have been such a wonderful, brilliant light this past year since you wandered into my big gay living room on Avenue A. Thank you for all the energy, all the laughs, and even a tear now and then.

All my love and blessings to you in '08.
