Two years ago, I received a very short email from Sabine: She invited me to join her new blog, and to have a look at her first post about "Risky Black Holes". This was the birthday of "backreaction"!
I didn't expect at all what has followed: Over the next few months, we've somehow found our own way to run the blog, and in the two years since February 2006, we - mostly Sabine, actually - have written a bit more than 500 posts. We have won a few regular readers, received thousands of interesting comments, and had lots of enlightening discussions. Thank you to all of you who appreciate our writing and contribute your insights! I highly appreciate this feedback, even more so because I usually invest quite some time in the preparation of my posts, and every so often wonder why I am actually doing all this.
The really rewarding thing is that you get to know very interesting people for all over the world you never would have met otherwise. And, I should add, running a blog is a great thing you can do together when for some reason, your spouse is living on the other side of the ocean!
