Five years ago, I decided to start Scott Writes Everything. I was a marketing copywriter, married, childless (albeit temporarily–my daughter is about to turn five), and had just begun to dip my toe in the email marketing game. Today? I’m a VP for an email marketing agency, still married (happily, I might add), and about to become a father once again (as announced here).
This blog has seen me change jobs three times, move across country, and nearly lose it when it got hacked and forced me to rebuild. It has seen me through the ups and downs of becoming a father for the first time, helped me develop a voice in the email marketing industry, and allowed me the opportunity to express myself (and filter myself) in new and exciting ways.
So what’s next?
I feel like I’ve been saying this a lot lately. Frankly, I don’t know. I’m still grappling with whether or not to make this space much more personal and open. Perhaps that’s why I haven’t really written since my last “5 years” article.
But in any case, five years of a blog is something to celebrate. Here’s to the next five years.
