Hello Paracord Lovers!
My first two weeks at Paracord Planet have been a real eye opener into the paracord world! I had no idea there would be so many options when it comes to paracord. From size to color, even the accessories and buckles you can choose from; it’s truly something else. I want to say thank you for welcoming me into the Paracord Planet family with open arms.
My first two attempts at a paracord bracelet went great! (check out my work below!) Once I found my rhythm I found it to be very therapeutic. My third, fourth, and fifth attempt didn’t go as planned... frustration set in and back in my drawer the paracord went. My patience will be tested with paracord, but it'll be worth it. As I start my journey with paracord I ask you to come with me. Soon I will start making tutorials and sharing them all with you! Make sure you're following us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, and Pinterest as I will be posting them there as well as on our website. There will also be new contests rolled out and even more ways to win paracord! I'm excited to interact with you all and learn more about paracord then I ever imagined!
If there is something you want to see more of, like, or don't like, share it with me!
What do you think of my paracord creations?! As you can see my go to paracord color is pink!

Putting a Wrap on my Time at Paracord Planet
Written By: Jackson Yakowicz
Jackson passes on the Paracord Baton (aka Paracord Pete) to Maggie
I was twenty years old when I started working at Paracord Planet. I had never heard of paracord before—I merely was looking for a job that could pay some bills and grant me a few college credits. It took me about three months to learn my first weave; it took me roughly six to learn the jargon. Although I was far from expert status, it only took me a few days on the job to realize what an amazing sense of community existed amongst you paracord crafters. I was welcomed in to it, I provided content to it, and I will miss it dearly. Over the past year and a half, I learned more about hitches, knots, and weaves than I ever thought possible. Although I will be leaving a drawer full of paracord crafts behind, I will be bringing with me an immense collection of memories from my time spent at Paracord Planet.
Alright, enough with the sentimentality. I am so very proud to give over the reins to Paracord Planet’s social media accounts to my friend, Maggie. As I look back on all of the relationships that I have made with you people over the past 16 months, I can’t help but feel ecstatic for Maggie to share some of those same experiences. She has an innate ability to connect with people, a marked way with words, and a budding fascination with paracord. I’m leaving you all in very good hands!
For the last time, #HappyCording.
