So yeah, Nerd Litter turned two on Sunday. Since its inception, it's grown beyond its humble origins as a furries enthusiast site into the proud behemoth you see before you today. I'd be lying if I said I didn't appreciate the many backstage groupies, bedazzled tourists shaking my hand on the G train, and semi-weekly Meetup groups that have sprung up to celebrate this site. I can only imagine what the coming year will hold, but as long as it involves many graven idols of my likeness and sweeping the Bloggies, I'll be a satisfied man.
And now, without further ado, here's a self-congratulatory look back at some (okay, most) of my favorite posts from the last year:
