My blog turned 12 in October, and I was so busy I missed it!

Morgan Linton 12 years of blogging

Is it just me or is this year flying by? I’ve been so busy that I forgot to put together a little post celebrating the 12-year anniversary of my blog, so hey – better late than never. started back in October of 2007, back then it actually didn’t even have it’s own domain name, instead it could be found on It also wasn’t a daily blog, and back then I could tell you I had no idea I’d still be blogging twelve years later.

In 2010 I started incorporating more video into my blog and finally made my move over to my own domain, After that I moved over to what I think is likely going to be the permanent home for my blog –

Writing a daily blog really is a lifestyle choice, and for me it has been a great outlet and also provided a really nice steady income stream. I am so thankful for all of my sponsors, some of them have been advertising on my blog for almost a decade!

Of course the reason that I write is you, my reader. I have readers from around the world and it’s always a blast to meet new readers from different parts of the world at conferences like NamesCon or Rick’s Asheville Meetup. As I’ve said many times, I plan to keep writing this blog well into my 100’s so if you’re not sick of me now…you still have plenty of time!

I would like to thanks my sponsors and my readers, here’s to the next twelve years!

    Happy Anniversary! I would love to have gone back on WayBackMachine to see how you started but only managed to get back to 2010 and at that point your site was already looking good!
