It’s been 12 years and these personal announcement posts have never gotten any less awkward for me.
Since starting this website back in 2006, it’s been a staple of my life as I’ve graduated college, started law school, dropped out of law school, started writing professionally, gotten married, started doing radio full-time, gotten a dog, and absorbed all the other beautiful and cruel bursts of life along the way. A lot of you, a healthy majority of whom I’ve never met in whatever has constituted “the real world” over this time, have been here for all of this. Occasionally we’ve had to have these brief, mostly one-sided conversations, if only because the topic at hand was guaranteed to affect this website, and in turn, our relationship. This one is no different.

Now get ready for like 17 straight weeks of my kid on every News & Notes post starting this fall.
