Dang, I missed it - BlenderNation had its birthday last week!! What started as an experiment has grown into a serious part of work - for the last seven years I have spent almost every single day sifting through Blender news and posting it here. I'm still enjoying it a lot, but as you can imagine it takes a lot of time to maintain this site.
That's why I'm asking for a small gesture of support: if you're ever ordering something from Amazon.com (the US site), please consider going through this affiliate link (you'll also find it on the homepage). That'll give me a small percentage of every sale, without disclosing any personal information. The credits are used for gifts for my family ;-) Thanks!
