Following up on Blender's 20th birthday (please remember to share your personal Blender story, if you haven't done already!), BlenderNation now also celebrates its birthday. It's hard for me to comprehend this, but it's been 8 YEARS since I started BlenderNation (on the infamous vrotvrot.com domain at that time ;-)! Hardly a day has passed where I haven't spent some time collecting your stories and giving you a podium, it's a kind of addiction :)
I'd like to give all of you a BIG THANK YOU, both for creating such wonderful projects as well as coming to BlenderNation every day, reading the news and adding to the discussion.
If you'd ever like to financially support BlenderNation (which would very, very, very much appreciated!), then please consider:

Now, on for some fun facts!
