Happy Belated Anniversary to you...


Hard to believe, but the anniversary for the ScoutSigns blog has come and gone.

It is almost the anniversary now of the Merit Badge of the Week program.  The point was to provide a weekly resource devoted to helping Scouts earn, and Scouters to learn, about a new merit badge.

Well, 14 of them made it--all of the A's and Backpacking.  I'm working on Basketry, and another Weekend Patrol Box before I head out for the weekend--camping with the troop, of course.

Blogging has been a lot of fun so far.  I've gotten to meet a lot of folks online via the comments, email and Twitter.  Everyone has been encouraging, and the spam has been thankfully light.

OK, the second year is off and running.  More patrol boxes to build and merit badges to communicate.

If there is something you would like to see, topics or series, please let me know.  In a year, the blog has had about 5000 views, so something must be working right!

THANKS to all of you who read and participate--feel free to pass it along!  The more people learn about the resource, the better information our Scouts will get!
