Thanks for the herd! There was so much great content that I missed the first time it was on the blog page. This will help me catch up on my GIO reading. Great week of blogs everyone.
Feeling sad? Read a MS fanboys' comment. That should make you smile a mile.
Wow, thanks, I thought that blog was a bit shoddy. Thanks for the herd! Congrats to everyone else also!
Great Blogs! I'm wonder what a fella' has to do to get herded around here?
Thanks for the herd, and congrats to all the other great bloggers! My dad will get a kick out of his story being herded. :)
thanks for the herd!
Awesome blogs this week!
Kudos to everyone herded, and to Saint for his continued hard work recognizing all the talent! And thanks to everyone who contributed to the community this past week.
Thank you for ze Herd Saint, excellent week of blogging everybody!
Looking forward to these.
Good job everyone! Congrats to being herded! I especially loved Marco Polo's blog "Has Buying New Games Become Charity???"
Blog herding is just like Christmas, except you get to share everyone else's presents.
With all the recent blogging activity, it appears I forgot I was engaged in some conversations on different blogs. Guess that's not that bad of a drawback, considering there are plenty of new bloggers now.
Great choices once again Saint! Thanks to everyone for their hard-earned herding too! Man, I'm ashamed to say that I've gotten blog lazy as of late. This makes me vow to return to the herd. Next week. . . next week. . .
Great round of blogs this week! Well done everyone!
Ah well, another week of herding goes by, and sadly another that I must miss whilst away... Congrats to all herdees.
