Far be it from me to forget the birthday of my very own blog: The Red String! I was just about to take a well deserved nap when I realized that today was the day. So I'm rushing out this post lest I forget but in this month's edition perhaps I'll do a little write up of our short one-year long history thus far.

So Dear Red String,
I wish you a happy birthday, long life, and prosperity. May your content never bore, and your readership ever increase.

Yours Truly,
Damola Mabogunje
