I want to take a second to wish all of you a Happy New Year, full of happiness and good vibes. 2015 was a little weird for OhGizmo!, a little bit all over the place and lacking in direction. I know for a fact 2016 will be different. I have a lot of things planned for the site. A redesign is on the way. And some new editorial directions. I’ve been online for almost 11 years now, and the blogging landscape has changed tremendously since the early days. It’s never easy knowing which direction to take to remain relevant, and in 2016 I plan to try new things. I’m hoping something will stick.

I’m going to be light on the updates for the next few days. It’s New Year’s celebrations now, and then I’m going to CES, but won’t be able to work much from there. I’ll do my best to pre-write a bunch of articles to tide you over until January 10th, but there may be less than usual.

And yes, the “usual” number of articles is yet another thing I plan to change for 2016. You guys deserve more than what I’m outputting, and I’ll do my best to fix that.

In any case, once again, Happy New Year to everyone. There wouldn’t be an OhGizmo! without all of you.


  1. Quality is more important than quantity, man. One of the things that sets OhGizmo apart from the sea of other gadget blogs out there is the selection of stuff featured. Don’t succumb to the lure of more content if it means compromising on the content’s worth. That’s a recipe for burnout and reader attrition.

    If you want to slap a new coat of paint on the place, that’s cool – but don’t change just for the sake of change. From where I sit, what you have works just fine.
