A very special announcement

I have something I’d like to share with the people that read my blog.

That’s right! My wife and I are expecting our first child! We’re officially due April 4th, 2012. I couldn’t be happier. I’m ecstatic to be a father. It’s something I’ve been looking forward to even before I got married. I’m going to spend the rest of today celebrating and we’ll return to your regularly scheduled Husband Hacks tomorrow.

It’s been busy around here

Some of you may have noticed things have been really busy around here the last few days. Well, there’s a reason for that. I’m taking part in Tentblogger’s Blog X – 90 day challenge. He’s taking us through a 90 day blogging work out that’s been awesome so far. I’ve been writing a lot (obviously) but he’s also gotten use started looking at things like SEO and such. It’s only been one week but I’m already a much better blogger for it.

Expect the activity to continue as I go through the next 83 days of the Blog X challenge. As I go through this challenge, let me know where you want to see this site go. I’m not writing just for me. I’m hoping people are getting something out of it. Feel free to let me know if there’s something I’m not writing about or if you completely disagree with something I’ve said. I would love to hear from you!

What’s this all about?

So, I’ve never really had a good place where people can find out what this site is all about. Well… fear no more! I have finally remedied this problem!

If you have a few moments to make your way over to the brand-new About page, you can start to learn a little bit more about what Husband Hacks is all about.

Please feel free to take a look and let me know what you think!

Welcome!

Welcome to Husband-Hacks.com.  This is my first post and I am extremely excited for what the future holds!

What exactly is the future?

In looking back over previous attempts at blogging and sharing my experiences with the world, I realized that I never had a focus or a purpose for my blogging.  Through reading of other blogs and sites (Tentblogger in particular), I have started to create a vision for the purpose of this blog:
“This blog is about becoming the man God calls us to be as it relates to being a husband, dedicated Christ-follower, and geek.”

I’m realizing that I want to help people with the words that I write.  I want to help people, husbands in particular, discover who they are meant to be as men of God and as husbands.  I am not proclaiming that I am an expert but I’m hoping that by sharing my experiences and as other people start sharing their experiences we can discover who God is calling us to be.

So what does that look like in a day to day life on the blog?

As a husband and geek, there are a few different pieces of content that you’ll see on this blog.  Mainly you’ll be seeing a lot of posts on learning to be a husband and how it relates to being a follower of Christ.  But occasionally, you will also see some more geeky and technical posts.  I have been working technical support for the past seven years and as such I spend a lot of time being not only technical support at my job but technical support for my home and my family.  I’ll also be sharing some thoughts on more geeky things that I’ve learned and how they can help improve your home.

I want this blog to be as much about me as it is about the people reading this.  So as we go forward, feel free to post your ideas to me either here on the blog, send me an e-mail, or on Twitter.  I am always loving to hear new ideas and thoughts so don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

Until the next time – Cheers!
