Happy Blogiversary

2011 May 2
by distracted daddy


Today is my blog’s birthday. Okay, not today. It was sometime last week and I was busy working. So happy belated birthday blog. The belated part doesn’t bode well for the upcoming wife/daughter birthday.

My baby blog is now a one-year old while my actual baby is actually now a toddler. In dog years my blog is seven. In baby years it’s still just one.

How does one celebrate a blog’s birthday? Cake? Presents? Comments? Quick post back-linking to archived posts?

According to What to Expect When You’re Expecting Blog Traffic, my baby blog should now be able to walk, receive negative comments, get PR, and have tantrums while I update WordPress. Apologies for the blog humour in lieu of the usual baby humour.

This blog began as a way to document my manternity leave. It continued beyond those four summer months. Obviously. Surprisingly it’s read by more than just my daughter’s grandparents. Apparently there is a market out there for lame jokes and pop culture references. The Family Guy has it cornered.

Unlike my daughter, my blog has a sibling blog (siblog – coining it) over at and a Twitter over @DaddyDistracted and a Facebook page. And a blog which you’re reading right here.

Happy Birthday Blog. Enjoy the spam.

    I’m not sure how you best celebrate. I’m guessing pouring champagne on your keyboard isn’t it. (having done that once myself on accident…)

    Thanks guys.

    Congrats on your month. The time goes by quickly when your blogging. I’m surprised it’s been a year.

    Yeah, we’ve accidentally spilled things on the laptop. Nothing celebratory about it.
