But it’s been 12 years since the brilliant Glenn Reynolds published his first post at Instapundit.com:

He was a true social media pioneer:

Since then, he’s paved the way for countless conservative bloggers:

And he’s inspired us with his hard work, his dedication, and — of course — his wit.

We’re grateful for him every day. Happy blogiversary, Instapundit!
