When I started this blog back in April of this year my only goal was to get my blog out there and to do my best writing. Turns out that I have started on a good path with the first goal and I think my writing has only improved since day one.
What I didn’t expect was to get some of the amazing emails I have gotten. Perhaps the most amazing thing that happened was that I have made some great new friends along the way — to all of you I want to thank you for your kindness and I look forward to our continued friendship.
That Was Last Year
I want to make 2011 even more bad ass. I look forward to forging new friendships and starting new debates. Please don’t ever be shy about emailing me — even when I get overwhelmed by the amount of email I receive, I always crave a bit more.
Most of all: tell me when you think I am wrong. I am always happy to debate, or even change my mind.
There are two major changes that I am pushing right now to the blog:
Ads: I feel incredibly lucky and fortunate to have been invited to join the Fusion Ad network. I had been reserving virtual space to get one ad on the site when I found the appropriate network and I think Fusion is that network. I look forward to joining the ranks of some outstanding blogs and I hope I can live up to the reputation associated with them.
Logo: Until today everything on the site had been designed by me or adapted from other themes. Today though, TBR has a new logo designed by an amazing graphic designer and all around great guy: Aaron Mahnke of Wet Frog Studios. I took advantage of an offer he made on Twitter and decided that TBR could use a better logo. I am very happy with what Aaron came up with and I hope you enjoy it too.1
A couple people send me links to stuff they think I might like and I would like to encourage all of you to send me tips and suggestions. Even if you just want to know what I think about something, or have something you think I should review — send them in.
Thanks for a wonderful 2010.
One last thing if you don’t see the new logo refresh again or dump your browsers cache and you should get it. Thanks
As a side note be sure to get in touch with Aaron if you have any kind of graphic design work you need done — you won’t regret it. ↩
