12 Months of New Voices

Thursday is the blogoversary of New Voices! We'll be celebrating all week and today we're joining in this meme (read: Internet game that has lots of people do the same thing so you can learn about each other).

The rules for this blog meme are simple.
Post the link and first sentence from the first blog entry for each month of the past year.
I encourage all of you to do the same, and leave us a note in the comments so we can come by and check out a year (or maybe less) of your blogging.
