I believe it has gone unmentioned so far, so I’ll do it: November 7th marked Anchor Rising’s 5 Year anniversary. I’m not sure what the average blog shelf-life is out there, but I suspect (and based on my own experience!) that we’ve surpassed it easily. That is partly due to our own doggedness (and the plethora of local source material) to be sure, but it would have been much harder if we had found ourselves opining to no one. So, thanks readers, whether agreeing or disagreeing, for keeping the Anchor Rising.
