Five Years of Taxidermy Blogging

If someone had told me 10 years ago that I would be able to describe myself as a professional blogger, I would have laughed in their face. But amazingly here I am, five years into blogging; writing down my thoughts, drawing little cartoons, photographing great works of art, creating little videos, and still rolling along with it. The success of this unlikely experiment actually boggles my mind. Hundreds of readers continue to visit my blog each day, and many thousands each month.

I would like to thank Chad Davis of McKenzie, for coming up with the initial concept for this blog and for setting it in motion. If not for Chad’s inspiration and his confidence in me, this project would have never even gotten off the ground. I would also like to extend my deep appreciation to the McKenzie company for continuing to support this and many other endeavors that are worthwhile to all who participate in the taxidermy industry.

On March 21, 2012, Ken’s Corner made its debut. After passing my five-year anniversary, I thought it might be good to present all of my blog entries in a chronological list, for easy access. Click on any of the titles or graphics below to see them.
