Today marks the four-year blogiversary of the Think Wilder blog. It’s a bit hard to believe that it’s already been four years since I first got the ball rolling on this project, but it’s the truth. In case you’re new or have forgotten, here’s what I did during the first three anniversaries:
To commemorate my first year of blogging, I announced a site redesign that was aimed at making it easier to navigate the site.
For my second year, I made a commitment to write more feature posts for the site.
And last year I celebrated my third year by creating three new pages: Start Here, Hire Me, and Support. I also created a Patreon account to let readers who would like to support my work contribute a monthly donation. I also created a one-time donation option with PayPal.
This year I have two announcements to go along with this blogiversary. The first is that a friend of mine created two new logos for me. The full-text logo can be seen at the top of this blog post, and you can go see the “letters logo” at the top-left of the blog as well as on all of my social media accounts—just look for the new profile picture/badge icon. This is a big step for Think Wilder, as it means that there will finally be professional-looking branding on all of my online presences. Plus, I think they look pretty awesome. Please let me know what you think of them—I’d love to know!
The second announcement is the creation of a Link Posts page that will archive all of my link posts moving forward. No matter where you are on the blog, you can always get to this page by hovering over the “Categories” link at the top of the blog and clicking on the “Link Posts” category. I’ve realized for a while now that it’s kind of difficult to find everything on the blog and this is just one of the steps I am taking to make it easier for readers to discover content.
I hope that you like these updates and I’m looking forward to making the fifth year of this blog the best one yet. While there is a lot I have accomplished, there’s so much more I want to do, so you’ll just have to stay tuned! Until next time, keep thinking wilder.
