Old 100th

We’ll, Blogger has just informed me that I’ve hit a milestone here at Busy-Dad-E: my 100th post!

I started blogging 8 months ago, and I must say that I’ve enjoyed the experience more than I could’ve anticipated.

My goal was to create an online journal to capture the thoughts, ideas, and emotions of fatherhood with a young family.

Early on, I made a decision to make my blog public, rather than inviting just family and friends, in the hopes of connecting with other dad (and mom) bloggers, who could relate to the joyful chaos that is our house. I’ve been more than delighted with the result.

As I searched out ways to connect with other bloggers, I was fortunate to come across I really enjoy this site, particularly Fatherhood Fridays. I’m thankful for the publicity for my blog, the great articles, and most importantly the wonderful people with whom I’ve met online and communicated.

I’m honored that so many of you have regularly come to my blog to read of our goings on, and I’m privileged to have had the opportunity to share in yours.

I was also lucky to pick up an endorsement of sorts from the British website,, which has been an exciting source of traffic to my blog from across the pond.

I also found the interesting website (which apparently has been renamed, which has also brought some traffic my way.

I also tweet some from Thanks goes out to my followers there.

Of course, I greatly appreciate those of you who have me on your blogroll.

At the risk of neglecting to mention someone, let me give a personal thanks to the following folks:
Aunt Karen
Weasel Momma
Surprised Mom
Shank Rabbit
Mocha Dad
Melisa with One S
Bella Daddy
Otter Thomas
Super Mega Dad

Thanks to those of you who read the blog without commenting (I know who you are :)

And of course, BIG BIG BIG thanks to Mom-E for your love, support, and encouragement (not to mention that little part about carrying and giving birth and breast-feeding, etc, etc, to Big Brother, Little Brother, and soon-to-be Bab-E Brother). You’re my love and my best friend, and I wouldn’t want anyone else next to me on this roller coaster.

Last but certainly not least, thanks to Big Brother and Little Brother, for all of the joy and pride and laughter (and occasional headaches and worry and frustration) that you bring to our family. You make me truly happy. Not to be left out, we love you Bab-E Brother. We love you and you’re already beginning to control us even before you make your official entrance.

In short, thanks to everyone. It’s been a blast!

See you on Fatherhood Friday,
