2 years ago yesterday, on a whim, I decided I could write a blog about my experience as a father. I was desperately searching for a creative outlet since I was, and remain, utterly talentless in any other arena. I chose the first free platform I found and within a couple of hours, I had written my first post.
I had no idea at the time that this would turn out to be such a immensely rewarding exercise. It was just what I needed emotionally at the time, and continues to be an excellent vehicle for me to express to the world the endless volumes of love and affection that I feel for my wife and son.
I would like to express a sincere and huge THANK YOU to all of you out there who have taken a few moments of your valuable time over the past two years to stop by LIAYF and read my posts, leave a comment, or recommend my blog to a friend. It means more to me than you can realize.
And on that note, I would like to also continue a tradition I started last year. This past Thursday was Delurker Day 2010. The idea, as many of you probably know is to encourage those who read your blog, but never leave a comment (Mom, Dad: This would include you) to take the time to let their presence be known.
I missed posting on the actual day as well last year, so I proclaimed it: Procrastinators Delurker Day. And like a true procrastinator, I am even later making this request this year. However, since it IS my blogaversary, I am counting on you to leave a comment. I am hoping to top last years Delurker comments, especially since my count was a big fat ZERO. That's right, I only received comments last year from folks who had previously left a comment. A little embarrassing indeed.
However, if you still can't bring yourself to leave a comment, but you still want to express your undying love for the amazing content that I laboriously bring to you each and ever week (often several times a week), I'm sure I read somewhere that electronics, fancy cameras, i-phones, and robot maids in particular, are the typical 2nd blogaversary gift item.
So, just shoot me an email, and I'll let you know where to send the gift of your choice.
