Happy Blogiversary, Richard! July 3, 2011

Happy Blogiversary, Richard!

It’s been exactly two years since Richard Wade began offering advice to atheists on this site. He’s answered nearly 200 questions via his column and countless others via private emails.

It seems like every time I give a talk anywhere in the country, readers come up to me to tell me how much they appreciate his wisdom and how he handles all the problems that come his way. I feel the same way 🙂

I’m thrilled that he’s such an integral part of this site, and I learn so much from him every time I read his posts or just read our email exchanges.

Thanks, Richard! Here’s to several more years.

    I’m lucky enough to get to talk to Richard Wade in person since we belong to the same atheist group in Los Angeles. So here, for your entertainment, is a little known fact about him:

    He has an excellent singing voice! I learned this when we were competing in a karaoke contest at our group’s Summer Solstice party last month.

  • Richard, even I, the most curmudgeonly of all atheists, consider your advice not only useful, but amazing. Bravo.

  • Annie

    Dear Richard,

    I have a serious problem. I just can’t think of the words for just how AWESOME you are. Please let me know what you would advise.



    In all seriousness, you do a lot of really amazing work here, and everyone here gains so much from your wisdom. You do great good. Thank you.

    I thank you for the effort you make to offer good, rational and sensible advice to those seeking it. You are both kind and wise – a rare enough combination.

    I’m sure you have helped many untangle difficult situations and helped them see their circumstance in a new and helpful light. Thank you kindly for that. =)

    Richard, I can’t tell you what a true pleasure it has been to read your responses to reader questions over the last 2 years. You are truly an asset to this community and I thank you for your insights.

    Dear Richard,

    Congrats, but I would just like to say that as much as I love your clear, insightful and genuinely empathic responses to issues; I love it more when you get your indignant snark on in general comment threads. Long may you be involved with this blog.

  • Richard’s answers are always insightful and well-thought, you can always tell he’s an artisan practicing his craft. Really, it’d be great to see Richard speak sometime.

  • LL

    Congratulations, Richard!!! I consider myself very privileged to get a regular dose of your wisdom and insight via your column here. It really makes me think about my own challenges that come up from time to time and how to handle each situation wisely. Thank you for that.

    Really, it’d be great to see Richard speak sometime.

    I agree! 🙂
