Our Baby Is Growing Up...

The Wizbang Bomb Squad got (to my knowledge) it's first Instalanche, and I've not even put out an announcement e-mail yet...

I've refrained from doing an official announcement of the the open author registrations at the Bomb Squad and Wizbang Sports, since there's also plans to add that functionality to the Tech site (refocusing it as a mix between /. and Engadget) and at least 2 new sites scheduled for later next week, Wizbang Baby and Wizbang Politics.

A friendly reminder to Bomb Squaders, unlike Terrell Owens and his ilk, showboating over an Instalanche (or other such link) in print - this initial notice excepted - is frowned on here. While there's nothing particularly wrong with showing you're excitement, I'm just not a big fan of the "Welcome XXX readers" update tags. What about all of those who didn't come from that site? Aren't they welcome too?

As any high school or college coach would tell you about end zone celebrations, "Act like you've been there before." Same goes for Instalanches.

SHIT! Congratulations! I'm glad I'm already registered here ahead of the flood and the subsequent "comment section is temporarily(sic) closed" (stuck-up punks!).
