The Happy New Family!
On May 9, 2009, my wife and I celebrated the birth of our first child! He decided to come see us a full month early, and was less than an hour away from being my wife’s greatest Mother’s Day gift she’ll ever receive!
No shocker here (especially for those of you with kids), but it will take a little time before I can get back into the full swing of things here on MIB, as I happily transition into fatherhood. However, I anticipate that I’ll continue to blog about once per week, and I hope to have some contributions from a few guest writers along the way.
Happy Birthday MyInkBlog
MyInkBlog has grown up considerably since I started this project/experiment 1 year ago. I honestly couldn’t imagine back then, the direction and success of MIB. I began this blog mainly as a lab to further experiment with WordPress. However, it has turned out to be so much more informative and rewarding than I had ever anticipated.
The blog now averages about 130,000 views per month and the rss readership has grown to over 4,000 awesome readers. I have gone through two major design iterations and have been making small, incremental changes since then.
I have plans to continue improvements in both the design and function of this blog this year. Stay tuned for a new logo, header and navigation, all of which is getting closer to being finished.
Thanks For A Great First Year!
Thank you to all the loyal readers and contributors that have made MyInkBlog very enjoyable and rewardable this past year!
