One year ago this week, Merlin Mann shared this on Tumblr. Naturally, I ended up spending most of an evening looking at the 349 items that were on his Amazon Wish List at that time. There was so much great stuff listed, I knew the world needed to see more. I started a separate Tumblr of my own, dedicated to sharing items from Merlin’s list. The horse head mask started it all on Feb 22, 2012.
I’ve been posting items from Merlin’s list ever since, often relying on Tumblr’s queue to keep the posts going on a regular schedule. Tumblr’s recent redesign made the posting process much less user-friendly, so I realized it was time to take this to the next level. Thanks to Squarespace, that was easy to do. I’m thrilled to officially unveil MannsWish.com.
Posts will still feed to the old merlinmannwishlist.tumblr.com page as well, though they will be delayed about 24 hours. Thank you all for your interest. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
