Five Years Old! Happy Birthday The Life of Stuff!
Happy Birthday The Life of Stuff … the stuff of my life. For the past five years, The Life of Stuff has been a big part of my life.
It was with me through a career change in 2012. I was writing posts the year I got married in 2013. It kept me on my toes during a big move in 2014. Early in 2015 it helped me celebrate the birth of my beautiful son Smith, and later that same year the purchase of Patrick and my first home. In 2016 it bagged me an award, finally. And this year, 2017, it has helped me celebrate the birth of my beautiful son Cassidy.
I published the first post on The Life of Stuff blog for the world to see on August 23rd 2012. Except the world didn’t see it for it was just a blip on the blogosphere. Five years later and The Life of Stuff will, in the very near future, be hitting the 500,000 page view mark. That’s one half of a million page views folks, and I’m happy to say that I’m proud of my little blip on the blogosphere.
However the best feelings I get from The Life of Stuff is when a reader connects with my writings and when I can shed light on a deserved person or place.
