First, let me say WELCOME. If you are a new poster (a writer [although lurkers and hesitant commenters are equally valuable]).
For Wednesday, December 17, 2008, who claims the title of newest blogger on Open Salon? Are you the newest OSticate?
And to expand the field of competitors, let's differentiate between "first blog"gers and merely "new-to-OS" bloggers.
Who is the newest newbie? Resident OSticates, please help. If you discover new talent during this 24 hours, point 'em out. And for you new guys and gals, when you go to "View Blog," check out the URL. That last few digits ID's your incremental addition to the valuable community you've joined. (I'm No. 2878, which makes me an old-timer, surprisingly.)
