So, the main reason I started this blog is in my role as advanced technical research for Megan over on CharadeStyle.com (check blogroll for links), she wanted to know how hard it would be to migrate over to wordpress and do her own hosting, so I’ve set up wordpress here in my own little corner of the webverse to find out.
Now that I have it set up however, I feel I might as well use it for something and really find out what is possible here. The problem is, all the “get rich quick by blogging” tutorials talk about focussing on your niche speciality. Well, as those who know me will attest, I’m kind of a serial obsessive. I’m interested in way too many things to run a blog focussed on anything in particular.
However a number of themes have run through my life, and I’m going to be documenting my ongoing dalliance with them here. Current top of the obsession wheel of fortune is guitar’s – both playing and making. So I’ll be posting quite a bit about that stuff. I’m still on the tail end of the latest obsessive episode of interest in photography, so there may be some pictures to see, and I’m also currently starting to learn riding and ‘natural horsemanship’ (something of an oxymoron I feel, but fascinating stuff nevertheless).
Other things that have been on the ‘hobby’ list in both near and distant past, and which may or may not surface here include: self-sufficiency, bonsai, japanese gardens, zen, sailing, motorcycles, painting, wargames (the list goes on, and I’m not just making this shit up for the benefit of Google, honest).
In my day-job I also get paid to write software, have good ideas and argue with people; but if I wasn’t such a consumate profeshunul, those are all things that would probably be on the hobby list too.
Anyway, if you stumble on this little corner, and you like what I write, then feel free to hang out, get in touch, shout it from the rooftops, or whatever. If you don’t like it, or get offended by something, please don’t bother to tell me or others about it. Its a big internet out there, feel free to move on and find something you do like.
