BlogExplosion has definitely been a very rewarding and interesting experience since we launched back in September 2004. We never imagined that BE would become so popular or develop such a devout following. We leave BlogExplosion as one of the leading blog communities on the internet and a top blog destination website. We want to thank all of our members for the support and encouragement to keep us going each day as we met some truely amazing people along the way. There is no way we could have done it without our loyal members and again a sincere thanks to everyone that were always there for us.
