Parent Hacks turns 1

A year ago today, Parent Hacks made its entrance into the world with my little ode to Purell. 1000 posts, over 4400 comments, and about 540K page views later, here we stand, a little older, a little wiser, and hopefully a little more sane. We've formed an incredible community, sharing our good ideas and helping each other out. I could go on and on about how amazing this year has been, but I fear I'll stray too far into sentimental gushing territory and you'll run screaming for your egg nog.

Let me just say this: it has been my privilege to be a part of this conversation with you. Parent Hacks is by far the most fulfilling project I've ever done...it has surprised and enlightened me at every turn. Thank you for making this such a good place to be. I can't wait to see where we go in the coming year.

To celebrate, I'd like to shine the spotlight on a few of the Parenthackers who've jumped into the conversation with both feet, sharing their wisdom, commenting, and generally contributing to the warm vibe around here. Starting today through the end of the year, I'll introduce you to these folks in a series of feature posts.

Happy holidays, Parenthackers, and thank you for making Year 1 of Parent Hacks such a knockout.
