Basement Blogger… No More!

For those that have been following me from the beginning I’ve spent the last year living with my wife and 2 kids in a basement. This wasn’t the original plan but as life continued on we found ourselves a bit stuck as my wife got pregnant (and then gave birth) and we just hadn’t had any luck finding the right home. In fact, my wife has been looking for nearly 3 years for our next landing spot!

During the past year I left my full time role at a large non-profit and started working for my two startups as well as trying my hand at being a professional blogger. Wow, what an amazing ride so far! I mean, who could possibly thought that I’d start the next part of my professional journey in a basement?

I should have named my blog “BasementBlogger” instead of TentBlogger! Perhaps I would have gathered more followers that way; regardless it was a some humble beginnings to my start as a problogger and hopefully it has more adequately (and realistically) described the lifestyle for someone trying to “make it” in this arena than the other myths that you might have read about!

But this afternoon I gave up, forever perhaps, the chance to be BasementBlogger when I closed on a house in downtown Atlanta (Little Five Points)! My wife and I are pretty stoked about the next steps and I’m personally excited to create an effective and productive work environment for my software development and blogging!

No, it wasn't like this...

I want to thank all of you here for your support, especially those that have been walking with me for some time – it’s been an incredible journey and I feel like it’s only getting started!

Who knows what the future holds for you and your blog – you might be blogging part-time making a few pennies today and this time next year you might be some place entirely different! The possibilities are endless and pretty much limitless.

I thank God for blogs, blogging, and WordPress!  As I have mentioned before I had no idea that they would take me to where I am today. And as I mentioned in my video I want to keep this first year close to my heart – I never want to forget that I was, at least for a time, both TentBlogger and BasementBlogger!

Have a great rest of the week everyone and I can’t wait to show you the new digs!
