August 2007 Roundup

Finally, the August roundup is done – it’s been harder to get these out every month, because I read everyone’s blogs using Bloglines, and have over 2,000 feeds coming in now. This means I look at upwards of 1,000 posts a day, usually. That kind of traffic can overwhelm you pretty quickly, and Bloglines still has August posts coming in up until about the end of September. But one more month down, one to go. :)
