Today marks the first anniversary of Critical Mastiff. It's been an interesting year, all told; I first tried to affect the personal, almost breezy style you can find on other blogs, before deciding that it wasn't working and switching to a more sober, analytical style. I hope that the change in style has been accompanied by improving content.

This blog has been at times a place for me to hone my arguments, to influence readers, or just to think out loud and work through the logic of things. Sometimes my blogging will pause while I do other things, or simply can't think of anything to say. But it has been a lot of fun, and I hope to continue for a while yet.

Anyhoo, enough navel-gazing...

I, for one, throughly enjoy your analytical style.

May the next be as good if not better as the first!

Mazel Tov!

I haven't been the most consistant reader, but I enjoy your writing when I do.

Many happy returns.

Mazal Tov!!!

I just wanted to say that I for one have entirely enjoyed your writing style. It is straight to the point, no holds barred and yet tactifully poignient. (misspelled something in there, I am sure). I hope you know that I admire your work, and look forward to reading more in the future. Cheers to maintainance of pragmatism and rationality in a world of moral relativism and suspension of reality.
