I'd like to suggest that on the anniversary of your very fine blog that you stop using "filler," the memes, the maps, the made up eye candy, the moderator-generated content that updates the page once a day in the absence of original material.
I've never been a mod here, but I've been a long time counselor to you, Leslie, Terry, etc. And I have contributed "filler" myself, recently, for the same reasons you have. But I don't believe it's the best thing anymore.
The page needs to go on on its own. I believe that blank days will test the community's interest in keeping the page alive, and I urge you to consider this very modest proposal.
I hope others who are reading today will weigh in with their own thoughts - or indeed other proposals - in the comments below.
