Happy Birthday

The Hobby Blogger Logo with Party HatI just had to take a break to acknowledge that The Hobby Blogger turned one year old yesterday. Man the time has flown by, I’ve learned a heckuva lot, and have gotten to know some great people in the blogosphere.

Because time’s short, this won’t be a state of the blog post, though that’s coming. Here are some more upcoming topics:

  • Customizing the default avatar in your blog’s comments section
  • App.net – Who’s actually on it?
  • Blog housekeeping tips
  • The importance of commenting on new blogs to grow your traffic
  • Changing WordPress’s permalink structure

It’s been a great year, and I’m looking forward to an even better second year. Thank you for everyone’s help, encouragement, comments, and camaraderie.

I love breaking down the techie side of blogging into easy-to-understand tutorials. That's mostly what you'll find here on The Hobby Blogger.


  1. Congratulations on making it to the 1 year point. I have started and stopped blogging many times over the past 7 years and the thing I have learned is that consistency is the key to keeping motivated. Realistic goals are also important. Congrats again.

      Thanks John. Yeah, realistic expectations has been key for me. My biggest challenge is fighting off distractions from other projects I’m trying to get off the ground. Gotta ignore the shiny flashy things :-)

  2. Hey Happy belated Birthday! I’ll be celebrating mine in December! How the time flies! Your blog is looking great.
