Happy Blogiversary!

One year ago today, I started this blog with really little-to-no thought, other than that I wanted to document what was going on in my life. After eight months of sporatic posting, Kels came on board as a writer and we decided to be intentional and committed to a regular posting schedule. So, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Words of Williams was reborn with intention. We still consider May 20 the birthday of this blog, however, and want to celebrate the milestones of our first year with you all. We think it’s kind of fun that this is our 101st post! Here goes…

  1. What’s your favorite post in our first year of blogging?
  2. Who has read all of our posts? (Mom, is that you?)


Husband to Kelsey. Father to Rooney. Follower of Jesus. Born and raised in Iowa. I like blogging. Bulleted lists excite me. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Apparently I need to step up my game to be #1 commenter next year ;) Favorite post? hmm.. split between “My mom always said” and “Are you ready for marriage?”. They have started some great conversations between the boy and I about whether or not we should/are ready to take the next step, so thank you for that!

  2. it is probably me. I mean who else do you know that has limited adult contact, no official job, and plenty of time to read blog updates twice a day while babies nap? ;-)
