Congratulations! I just peeked over 8,000 posts between the two blogs after nine years. Unlike you, however, I have no self evident claim to standards of quality through time. I wish I could time line it all somehow, trace my limitations and contradictions. One thing beery I realized I have witnessed early on was the collapse of maltiness as a primary element. Any thoughts on patterns you have recorded over time even if not intentionally?

For the first year or two, we hadn’t worked out the technology or the ‘corporate voice’. Lots of those posts begin “I” but, in most cases, we can’t remember which of us wrote it. Sloppy.

We’ve become warier about saying certain naive things that will prompt storms of irritated comments, but also become more confident in stating our views in other areas, and using the language we want to.

We’ve all but given up on reviewing beer and have settled into our ‘pondering’ niche.
