  1. Happy 3rd Blogging Anniversary, Dear Raleigh Connoisseur!

    And thank you for bringing interesting local information in this place. Always pleasure to read!

  2. Thank you for providing information to help keep the uninformed (like me)up to speed on what is happening in Raleigh. I see so many blogs about Raleigh start and stop. Keep up the great work.

  3. My congratulations Leo on completing your 3rd year. I can really appreciate the dedication and time commitment associated with maintaining a blog. My best to you, and a thank you on behalf of all your readers for staying the course. Jim

  4. Congratulations, Leo! And and all the best on your 3rd anniversary. The Raleigh Connoisseur was the first local blog I discovered on the internet — your post on the old Meredith College site — and look where that discovery has led me! ;-) Hey, why don’t I buy YOU a beer?!

  5. A well deserved milestone Leo. I read every article posted here, and I can’t think of many (if any) media sources/web sites that I can say the same for. I can only echo the words of others: “keep it up!”
