Congratulations, Brad!

Your post about contxt from last week actually made the cut for tomorrow’s HEE newsletter – thought it was worth mentioning it as well.

Love that you included posts you wish you hand’t written – we all have those for sure :-)

Congrats! You’re won of the people that have inspired me to become so active in the blogisphere. How long did it take you to get to 200? I’m only at 38. But for all of the month of March, I’ve written every day. My goal is to write an average of everyday for the next six months. If I do that I will break 200 in six months. It was great meeting you in FL and look forward to meeting again in Chicago.

Kudos on this milestone, Brad. You’ve done a great job with this blog, with bloghighed.org and now with your new ventures. Thanks for sticking with it.

P.S. – How did you measure the top posts that got no comments? I’m guessing by traffic. (Obviously not by number of comments received. D’oh.)

Congrats Brad, I value squaredpeg.com and bloghighed.org. Best of luck with Blue Fuego! I’m sure you will do great!
