One Year and Counting.

Today marks the one year anniversary of this blog. When I started this thing a year ago, the whole point was to try and document living in my new Studio 804 House. It was supposed to be a chronicle of day to day living in the home, the new neighborhood, and having a lawn for the first time in ten years. What I discovered is, I lead a fairly boring home life, and it was hard to write something daily that wasn’t a repeat of what had gone on the day before. So the whole thing morphed into really me trying to write something every day. Most of the posts have had a design focus to them. Not all, but most of them. I still post about things happening at the new house, but now just things that I think are important or significant to the experience.

Today marks a new phase in the life of this blog. Since a large portion of my day is spent working with motion graphics and design, I am upgrading to include embedded video, and will begin featuring articles on the design behind video I create, as well as others. This doesn’t mean that I’ll only be posting on this topic, it just means I’ll have video  in the pages, without having to link to external sources.

Now for a few facts, in the last 365 days, I have posted 437 posts in 29 categories, with 1705 tags related to the posts. Over 330,000 people have visited, and read things, yet only 117 of you have left comments on the blog itself. I hope the numbers keep going up, and I hope you all keep coming back. Thanks for reading and look for more in days to come.


  1. Excellent job man! Writing everyday is tough but you always seem to find something interesting to write about.

  2. Your blog is one of my favorites, Wade, and you’re to be commended for both it’s quality and substance. I always find something worthwhile, and have probably learned more about design from your blog in the past year than in all my professional years working around designers. My only criticism is that you inevitably post a bunch of cool stuff to buy, and I’ve probably spent over a grand on your suggestions over the past year. If you had a “buy” button, you could be raking it in in referral fees! Cheers.
