A Message from Your Friendly Neighborhood Mid-Century Blogger

Hi readers (those of you that are left),

I do my best to make sure this site isn't about me, other than things I may be doing to my mid-century home, but after posting for five times a week for almost five years, I haven't posted in four months. That deserves some explanation.

Much like a certain West Philadelphian, my life got flipped-turned upside down. I went through a slight career shift to become a Sr. Content Strategist. I help my wife launch a new website for the best marketing firm in Austin. We're selling our first home – not the one you've seen on this site, the one we bought before this blog started and have been renting for a while. And a few other things happened that the internet doesn't need to know about. The long and short of it is, I had to select what I was going to focus on and as much as I love it, writing about mid-century stuff every day didn't make the cut. What started as a little break to keep my head above water turned into an extended sabbatical so I could keep the balance.

However, life is getting back to a normal pattern now, or it should be in the near future. With that, I'm hoping that my posting schedule will return to something closer to normal here on Mad for Mid-Century. I can't promise that it will be back to five posts a week for the next five years, but I can promise you that I think about posting every day and I'm going to start doing it more often than not.

Apologize for the break. Thanks for sticking around. And to new readers, I'll have something for you real soon.


  1. We just bought a mid-century home in Brentwood and this site has been such a fabulous resource for design ideas and local vintage stores. Thanks for the update and congratulations on the site launch... looks great!

  2. Hi there! Glad you're back! I sent you an email about an American of Martinsville find last December (2014) and did not hear back. Were you able to find out anything about the piece? Thanks :)

    1. Hi. Sorry I wasn't able to find anything about the AoM piece. You might want to try your local vintage / mid-century stores, they might be able to tell you something if they typically deal i n American of Matrinsville.
