Okay, so I'm a little late pulling this together. As anyone who has hosted WBW knows, the least-fun part about doing so is compiling the roundup post. Sure, it's fun to read everyone's submission, but typing them up in one place just isn't very fun. I wish LENNDEVOURS could afford a free intern. Yes, I know a free intern is free.
Anyway, we had 34 participants this time around (including yours truly). Some of these blogs were, I'm embarassed to say, new to me. I don't read as many blogs as I used to. But, I'll be adding several new ones to my Google Reader later today.
Thanks to all who participated for making WBW's 4th birthday a fun, interesting one. In no particular order (just the order I jotted them down in, really), I give you the
34 40 brave souls who sipped into their wine pasts.
