It’s Publication Day! Parent Hacks is now officially available wherever books are sold. You’d think I’d have something profound or cleverly marketing-savvy to say. But I don’t. All I can say is a dumbfounded THANK YOU.
Thank you to my husband, Rael, who taught me HTML in the mid 90s and said “I’m telling you, the World Wide Web is going to be big someday.”
Thank you Evan Williams and Meg Hourihan for launching Blogger, creating a whole new way to build community.
Thank you Ben and Mena Trott, founders of Moveable Type. This blog was hosted on TypePad during its formative years.
Thank you to Tim O’Reilly, founder of O’Reilly Media, whose Hacks series of books sparked the idea for this blog.
Thank you to the first person who ever emailed me a parent hack.
Thank you to every person who told a friend or spouse “you should check out this blog.”
Thank you to every person who has ever submitted a hack or left a comment here.
Thank you to all of my blogging friends and colleagues, without whom I couldn’t have done this.
Thank you to my kids for being endlessly fascinating and supportive.
I could go on! Just…thank you.
If you haven’t yet seen the book, flip through it in your local bookstore. I think you’re going to love it as much as I do, and I hope a new generation of parents who have never heard about me or this blog will love it, too. — xo Asha
