This thing I call my blog

I’ve had an influx of new readers lately, and thought I’d summarize this little thing I call my blog, for those of you just joining in the fun.  So, hang up your coat, take off your shoes, cozy up, and let me take you on a tour.

My ‘About Me’ reads this:

  • I’m a sport-loving chiropractor who decided to start a blog to talk about things that are important to me. I hope that can be a source of information and opinion on the adventures of health, fitness, and parenthood.

That’s all true.  But it’s become much more than that.  This blog has grown much bigger than I could’ve dreamed and it’s become a big part of me, a big part of helping me find my voice.

I’ve found it.  And I plan to keep using it.

If you’re new to my blog, welcome!  And if you’re one of my regular readers, thank you for supporting me through almost three years of writing.

Happy Anniversary to my Blog!

I started this blog as a way to reach out and share my experiences, to allow my patients and my readers to get to know me better, and to write about my ‘adventures of health, fitness, and parenthood’.  But it’s morphed into more than that- it’s become my creative outlet, my diary, and my memory bank all rolled into one.  This week marks the one-year anniversary of  And what a year it’s been.

It’s been a year of ups (I Hope You Always) and downs (Farewell, Our Loyal Friend), trials (Memories for Sale) and tribulations (I am a Transplant. And it’s Christmastime), criticism (Yes, I Paint my Son’s Fingernails) and praise (The Art of Humility).

From my first post (Lance Armstrong and Me: the Online Experience) to my favorite post (10 Lessons that Dads WILL Teach their Daughters), I have enjoyed sitting down every week and pouring my feelings onto the computer screen.  I hope you feel that realness conveyed in my words.

I’ve written a lot about nutrition (Food for Thought), Crossfit (This Thing Called ‘The Open’), and running (21.1Kms of Friendship).

I’ve written a lot about my children (My 6-month-old Loves Chicken), my parenting style (‘It’s Not Babysitting, It’s Parenting), and the mundane goings-on of my everyday life (Sunday at 3:00).

I’ve written a lot about chiropractic (I am a Chiropractor), my patients (I Want to Thank You), and my views on health (“I Don’t Have Time to Exercise”).

I’ve been overwhelmed by the response to some (Wear the Dress Socks), and surprised by the lack of response to others (Dear NHL).

I’ve cried hard (Break the Silence), I’ve smiled hard (It’s More than a Piano), and I’ve thought hard (Cancer is a Powerful Word).

I’ve had a good year.
