The Party Post Was Up at 5:33 a.m.
Everyone who attended the blog birthhday party October 24, 2006 was invited to bring a link to their most successful post and to explain how they made that choice. Each blogger made a choice based on his or her own criteria. During the party, people left to read posts and came back to talk about them.
To celebrate DWBâ€™s one year b-day Cat created a shared banner page. Take a look it is incredible — like the blog it comes from.
Timothy Johnson offered these words his sales for charity.
And since you made a semi-obscure reference to â€œRace Through The Forest,â€ check out the charitable promotion Iâ€™m running right now. Iâ€™m basically donating my book-sales margins, so I want to sell as many books as possible to benefit three very deserving child serving organizations. . . . Letâ€™s hope those Amazon reviews help raise a whole lot of money for some really great charities: A Time to Give.

Acomment 80 that we started tallking about the importance of breathing and what it meant when we were breathing through one notril more than the other.
In the middle of that discussion — at comment 96 — Tony decided that he would see whether co.comments could keep with the number of comments this post would be getting. . . . more on that later.
At comment 180, Tim asked Is there a World Record for most comments received on a single blog post? Who/where/how would track?
I found this link — Most Comments Ever.
Candice did elaborate.
There are actually many other posts about shoes, like â€œthe shoes the laptop wearsâ€ and my red shoes. (The laptop wears a pair of pointy-toed black leather high heels that were the talk of my cousinâ€™s wedding. Heh.)
The coolest people were coming to this party, and It was only 1:40 in the afternoon.
