Top 3 Posts of 2015

I released this blog into the wilds of the internet on December 17th of last year. It was more of an experiment really, to see if I like it, to see if people like it, etc. The creative outlet of writing had interested me, but it wasn’t until I started waking up early did I find the margin to give it a shot. And it was rewarding enough that I ‘ve continued to wake up early about 80% of the mornings since. New born babies, sickness, or sometimes laziness kept me from 100%, which is OK as I didn’t think I’d last more than a week of doing it. I’m calling the experiment a success and will continue into it this next year.

I wanted to thank you all for reading, commenting, sharing, and subscribing. Your support has made it fun and I look forward to what 2016 has in store, and hopefully the many laughs we will share.

In terms of total views here are the top three posts for 2015. Tell me, did your favorite make the cut? If not which is your favorite post so far? Also, I’d love any feedback about what you like or don’t like about this blog, and how it can improve. Feel free to leave a comment below or use the contact page if you want to include swear words.

Taking the lead is a father’s no-holds-barred-look at the birth of his fourth child. Warning: Not for those that enjoy the illusion that cutting the umbilical cord will be ceremonious.

My sweet mother’s diagnosis with cancer and the beautiful side effect of it.

    Oh, mine didn’t make the cut. I’m forever in love with Nola wanting you to be a Tiger Tamer. These were high on my list. But that tiger post just summed up everything that is perfect about being a parent.

    Picking a favorite would be like asking which child is your favorite. Minefield territory! Keep up the good work in the next year, you are every bit as good as Patrick F. McManus in my book.

    Mine made it! The ones I remember best are when Charity was at her conference and you had the kids for the week. So. Funny.
