Well, it’s been a year.

Last October, I decided that I’d do my part and give the world just what it needs— another blog (and a Trademark Law Blog at that).

When I started blogging, I wasn’t really sure where, exactly, I would fit in the conversation.  After all, there were already a lot of intelligent voices out there in the trademark/IP blogosphere.  And, as visual evidence confirmed, I was “terrifyingly youthful” when I rolled out Pittsburgh Trademark Lawyer.  (I like to think, however, that after a year of blogging, I could be promoted to a mere “shockingly youthful.”  Ron?)

At any rate, I’ve had a lot of fun over the past year.  The blog has forced me to stay current on trademark issues.  It’s been a fantastic outlet for the side of me that thinks I’m still a journalist.  And– get this– people actually showed up to read the blog.

I want to say thanks to my law firm, Elliott & Davis, for allowing me to indulge my blogging impulses.  I also want to thank a few bloggers who have helped me with feedback, tips, and link-based karma.  Thanks to: Prof. Michael Madison, Ron Coleman, Ryan Gile, and Jack Greiner (as well as anyone else I may have missed).   Finally, thanks to everyone who’s taken the time to read my blog.
