The day VBB was born! Since then we've gone through many authors, many discussions, many fights and many tears. Friendships formed and friendships failed. Those of us in the VBB Core Group had no idea this would strike so many nerves and be so popular. We feel we serve a very important function which is to give a voice to the profession unlike anyone else. True, others try to copy (poorly) what we are doing, but at the end of the day what makes this blog a success are the READERS who keep the momentum moving forward. There should be no sugar coating of what's really going on in the profession and we still feel at VBB that telling the truth from many different viewpoints is what sets this blog apart.
We are getting close to TWO MILLION VIEWS! Please share our blog, send in your stories, and SHARE WITH US what your day is like, what your life is like, what makes you happy, what makes you sad... we LOVE sharing the stories sent in to us and want this to be a blog with many participants. Bring it on, readers!
So here's a big fat HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone who reads VBB, follows VBB, follows our tweets, argues with us, insults us, agrees with us. Speaking your mind is what makes it all so great!
We hope everyone has hope on the horizon and happiness in their hearts and all of that bullsh*t we say to ourselves on New Year's Eve. Except we mean it. Sort of. :)
HERE'S TO A NEW YEAR!!!
