Home Sweet Home


This Saturday, May 15, will be the fourth anniversary of GoodStuffNW. What started out as a marketing experiment to find out if those newfangled "blog" things had any use whatsoever became a new career as a writer for me. The name itself was just a placeholder, to be tossed out at some point and replace by one more dramatic, more appealing, more…well…cool.

Four years and more than 1,100 posts later (1,151, to be exact), I've taken the plunge once again and registered GoodStuffNW as a domain all its own. Some might say it's about dang time and I'm just lucky it was still available, and I couldn't disagree. And don't worry, you can still get here the same old way; it'll just forward to the new domain automatically. Plus it'll be so much easier to tell people where to find it!

In sum, I'm thankful for the fabulous support and encouragement of GoodStuffNW's readers and contributors over the years, as well as  new advertisers like the Beaverton Farmers' Market and Kookoolan Farms (look for more to join the fold soon!). Here's to the future!

w00t! OMG - so cool! it's sorta like wearing big-boy pants...or would high heels be more appropriate (tho I can't picture you in those either - help!). You get my drift. Congrats, KAB =))

I take inspiration from you, my dear Rebecca…you've been in big boy pants for a long time, and it shows! (Hate the diaper butt…so unattractive!). Thanks!
