This is my last post on grow-a-brain.

Thanks for the nearly 20,000,000 visitors who checked in during the 7 years I blogged here.

I can be found at my new, personal site, Grow-a-baby, dedicated to Adora, the person above. You may contact me through the email there.

this is sad. You're feeling the stress of parenthood... eh...

What are we going to do now without you?!!

Posted by: Claudio at Jan 22, 2010 1:44:58 PM

Wow, Hanan! I hadn't checked in here in quite a while and what a day to return! Thank you so much for your devotion to sharing so many wonderful things here, and my best to you and your family. :-D

Tis a sad, sad day Hanan... At least for the legions of fans... whose brains have grown immeasurably over those years. I for one will miss Grow-a-Brain dearly and as long as you leave it up, will revisit it often... It's become a wonderful web resource and endless source of pleasure. Of course I'll check in on Adora from time to time as well... :-) You're a lucky man!

I'm going to miss you. Grow a Brain inspired me to start blogging. Being a Blog of the Day was a real honour and like everyone else I snatched links from you regularly. I guess you have more important occupations now. Best wishes Hanan.

Impressive body of work --- thanks!

Merci c'était merveilleux et elle est merveilleuse

Well, you have been hinting at this and I knew this day was coming and now that it's here, all I can say is farewell, thanks for the outstanding weblog and all the brain-expanding learning nuggets and know that I will be keeping an eye out over there.

Let's look at this as a transition rather than an exit. I suspect that we might see you again, in some further form, someday.

In the meantime, I'm going to have to start raiding the archives in short order.

Guess all good things come to an end :(

Posted by: Steve at Jan 23, 2010 4:01:40 AM

I will miss this site but I do drop in to see the beautiful Adora regularly. She is certainly growing before our eyes. Thanks for all the information and entertainment you have provided here over the years. Best of luck and kisses for Adora. Did you figure out the comments there?

Posted by: Cuidado at Jan 23, 2010 4:18:37 AM

well Hanan.You have hinted as much.tis a shame but I understand where your coming from.Stay In Touch Man! Regards From Tony.

Posted by: tony at Jan 23, 2010 6:33:17 AM

Congratulations, have enjoyed your great blog for some time, good luck with the new one though recent experience suggests you may not have time to keep it up :p

Posted by: John at Jan 23, 2010 1:04:06 PM

Congrats and may your new blogging enterprise flourish.

Posted by: sciencedude288 at Jan 23, 2010 1:29:28 PM

So long and thanks for all the fish.

Posted by: Brian Puccio at Jan 23, 2010 2:06:01 PM

Hearing this is like hearing the library has closed. I have learned an enormous amount here and feel my brain has in fact grown a bit. Please consider keeping the site around for archival purposes. You and your work are a real treasure. Thank you Hanan!

We probably all knew this day was coming but still, I will miss all of the great stuff you found for us. Such devotion to your sweet baby girl makes my heart all warm and gushy.


Posted by: Jo-Ann Burton at Jan 24, 2010 5:14:25 AM

Our BRAINS will cease to GROW as well as they did when you were here. Thanks for all the inspiration you provided to all your fellow bloggers and the world in general.

Oh wow. You have a blog of page rank 5 and from reading all the comments you also have a lot of dedicated followers. Never the less family comes first, sorry I did not discover your blog sooner.

Posted by: Turkish Property at Jan 28, 2010 1:56:22 AM

Best of Luck, Hanan! You've made a wonderful contribution to the lives and brains of many many people, and I'm sure you'll continue to have a positive and productive impact on the world for many years to come! Thank you!

Sorry to see you go. This has been a wonderful sight, and I'll have a great time picking through the archives. Happy everything, and good day.

Posted by: ImMattMan at Jan 29, 2010 5:50:42 PM

there should be internet police to stop you from doing this to all of us.

Posted by: shane at Jan 30, 2010 4:21:06 PM

I hope you do well.

Would anyone be able to direct me to a similar site? I really have enjoyed some of the specific themes, photography, and music.

Thank you for the great intellectual pleasure and love of curiosity you gave to us over the years. Also, a special thank you for your support of a new writer; being included in your literary/books section = a great privilege.

All the best,

Hanan, I still can't leave comments on Adora. She is so beautiful and you certainly named that blog perfectly.
