In honor of my 1 year blogoversary, I registered the domain www.halfchangedworld.com for this blog.  Observant readers may have noticed that the change showed up in my permalinks a few weeks ago.  The old URLs will continue to work, but feel free to update your bookmarks.

On this occasion, I want to thank you, my readers.  When I started this blog, I had absolutely no idea how much fun it would be, how much I would learn from your comments, or how much sense of community I would come to feel.  I don’t respond personally to every comment, but I do read and appreciate every one.  (Well, except for the spammers.)  If you leave a link to your blog, I always stop by and check it out.  I truly couldn’t do it without you.

Any requests for the next year?  Suggestions for topics you’d like to see me discuss more often?  Less often?   Recommendations of books I should be reading?

    Hey there elizabeth:
    I think I’m turning into one of your frequent commenters. I don’t know how I got to your blog (it’s related to the mommy-stuff), but what I got interested in reading is the policy discussions that went beyond the cliches. I’ve now seen you start those discussions on class, on part-time work, on schools, and gas prices. The point of acknowledging reality on any issue (even if you don’t like the facts on the ground) is the hope that knowing them will help you craft better solutions.
    I think we need more of the same, perhaps framed in different ways, to get us thinking aobut how to make things work.

    More of the same! I greatly enjoy your blog.

    Congratulations on your blogiversary! I’m always impressed at your ability to approach so many issues incisvely and dispassionately, with an eye to the key points that the rest of us always miss.
    Another vote for more of the same. Thanks for doing what you do.

    Happy anniversary! Gives me another chance to say how much I enjoy your blog. I think more of the same for me. I particularly enjoy your gender/workplace discussions, but I like most of your topics. And I only wish I could get most of the books you read at my library and/or local bookshop.

    Congratulations! Your formula seems to be working great. I appreciate that you blog frequently and regularly.
    I’d be interested in hearing “lessons learned” about blogging. While blogging about blogging too often can be tedious, in small amounts it’s really interesting. You have built something unique and successful and I’d love to know your thoughts about the process of blogging.

    Congratulations! I love your blog, it’s the only one I read on policy. (How’s that for pressure? : )

    Congratulations on your anniversary! As for suggestions for what to post about, I would like to see more on school issues, in particular No Child Left Behind, state-mandated testing, etc. I think the school issues broach so many policy areas (not just education policy, but work-family issues, politics, state vs. federal rights, etc.) and there are not many places to find discussions on these areas that are not just full of rhetoric.
    And I hear you on surviving I-95 — we couldn’t even manage the entire trip home from Massachusetts in one shot, and had to resort to a hotel and a Sesame Place/Please Touch Museum “pit stop”!

    Happy Anniversary! Wish I could help out with topics but my brain power is limited these days. Just keep posting about what interests you…it seems to be working!

    I’m an atheist, so I skip past your ‘faith’ comments. I am interested in VA politics, so when you write about that I pay attention. I’m probably most consistently interested when you write about work-life balance.
    But, you know, you’re throwing this party. Write what you like. That’s what it’s for. Enough people are interested, you’re having fun.
