Remember when Live Journal used to be the thing? Then it was Xanga, MySpace, Facebook (when you needed a college email to sign up), and Twitter (before it got Musk-field).

Those were fun times. Xanga was the first place I experimented with HTML tags and Photoshop to customize my profile. I thought I was a boss with the bevel and emboss effects.  

BTW where does the word “blog” come from? 

Based on Wikipedia

The term “weblog” was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December 1997. The short form, “blog,” was coined by Peter Merholz, who jokingly broke the word weblog into the phrase we blog in the sidebar of his blog in April or May 1999.

I bet Merholz never thought “blog” would stick 25 years later….It’s not the sexiest word, am I right?

But I digress. 

As our follower, you have allowed us to drop into your feed on a regular basis and share our “deep thoughts.” We truly appreciate you and strive everyday to provide you with valuable content. So after doing our newsletter for a few months, we figured the only natural thing to do was to house all our past content on our site.

Today, we introduce our blog, “Stumbling Forward.” 

Here, we have collected all our previous emails and have organized them into four categories. 

  • Design
  • Web Development
  • Tips and Tricks
  • In Real Life

It was appropriate to name our blog something that reflected how we see the creative process and life. While we may not have all the answers and may feel lost at times, no matter what, we keep moving forward, persevering, and looking damn good while doing it. 

We hope you refer back to these articles and find them helpful, inspiring, and, most importantly, relatable. Or at least amusing enough where you do that thing where you exhale through your nose.
