Patentably Defined is a year old. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for visiting this blog, for suggesting it to colleagues, and for leaving your comments. Last month was this blog’s busiest month to date. I am still in awe over the thousands of monthly visitors to this site and the many thousands more who subscribe by RSS and email. I still remember the day I registered the 100th unique visitor to this site and the day I received my very first email comment/compliment (thank you Russ Krajec of Anything Under the Sun Made by Man!).
With a year under my belt, I realized it was time to have a blog makeover. When I started this blog, I was new to blogging and a simpler site was the best choice. The previous look served its purpose as a vehicle to help me learn to blog, to communicate with all of you, and for you to communicate with me. Having hopefully mastered the basics of WordPress and cascading style sheets (thank you Joe Iskra and Chris Mitchell!), it is time to move to a more advanced look and feel that actually has some character and reflects my background in astrophysics.
On this anniversary, I’ve decided to re-publish my very first post to see if I have stayed true to my promised mission:
- Welcome to the Patentably Defined Blog. I intend this blog to be a practical resource for patent practitioners, providing engaging discussions of various patent prosecution strategies along with practical suggestions and useful examples. The many strategies and practice examples that will appear on this blog are for the consideration of those who will (hopefully) visit this blog, and the opinions, suggestions, and commentary of those visitors are humbly solicited.
After 35 posts, I think that I have remained true to this purpose. As always, I welcome your feedback. If you have any suggestions on how I can improve this blog or if there are topics you would like to see covered, please let me know.
Here is to the years ahead.
