Best of OHD 2012


Here is the final post for the year in review. The last quarter is where I started producing most of the content in house with my team. It has been really great to work with different people and see everything come together for a shoot. A special thanks to all my wonderful contributors and team members. I also want to thank everyone for coming to Oh Happy Day. 2012 was a great year and this community is so supportive. Here is to a Happy 2013!!

Year in Review 2012 | January-March

It was fun to go through my archives from 2012. I tried a few different models where the first part of the year I had contributors in addition to my own projects and the last part of the year we experimented working a team to produce our projects in-house. We are still making adjustments so we can find the right set up but it has been really great working with other people. I’m excited for all of the things in store for 2013.
