Happy Tuesday Readers. I'm a day late, but I just realized that on Monday Luke I am Your Father turned 4 years old.
Merriment and Whatnot.
If anyone would have told me back in January of 2008 that I would still be doing this in 2012, I would have laughed. After all, according to the Mayans my blog was supposed to be extinct in 2011. That will teach people to trust the predictions of a civilization who, let's be honest, couldn't even foresee their own demise.
Seriously though, I think that having a dad blog that turns 4 must qualify me as somewhat of a Elder statesman of the Dad Blogging community. I am the quiet one in the corner who seems to be perpetually contemplating something, but who is really just nodding off. And nodding off is what I have been doing a lot of recently with this blog.
Sorry about that.
The fact is, I have not been visiting/commenting on many blogs, spending much Social Media sites, or posting on any sort of regular schedule here at Luke, I am Your Father recently. I can't pin it to one specific reason, but rather a combination of a lot of factors. Life has just gotten busy. With work, at home, and with Lukas. Honestly, it's amazing that I kept up the kind of pace I did for as long as I did while also working full time.
I still plan on blogging here. But on my 4th Blogaversary, I am realizing that I can do this a bit less often and still take a lot away from the experience.
I know there seem to be an abundance of new dad blogs and sites popping up all the time. Honestly, as much as I would love to, I can't really keep up with them given my current time commitments. Though I encourage you to. I did have one tell me in a recent comment that I had inspired a lot of bloggers. Really?
For a guy with no aspirations, who started an obscure blog 4 years ago to gush about his newborn son, this is a very nice place to find myself today.
