This will be my fourth attempt at a blog ... will I write it this time? Who knows. Hopefully, I will. I'm happier when I write.
My first blog attempt was a windows spaces thing. I did that for a month or two and lost interest. Then I tried something through MobileMe, and had fun but our trial subscription ran out and I didn't have enough fun to renew it for $100/year. Then finally, I've had two WordPress blogs. One of those actually had a lot of readers for awhile, anywhere from 800 - 4,000 a day. I got some sponsors and made enough money to pay for my own domain and a professional template. My mistake was getting sponsors. The second someone was paying me to write the content, I started thinking of it as a second job and then it wasn't fun anymore. I quit doing it the second my sponsors' purchased time was up.
I just want to write and those who know me know that I always have something to say, so blogging seems to be a good fit.
In the next year, I hope to write my first novel. This blog will, in part, chronicle that adventure. My wife and I are also about to have our FIFTH child, so that's bloggable too. I'm about to embark on an adventure with P90X2 and that will be a task that I'll touch upon from time to time. There's an ongoing Presidential election, and I may hit on that a bit.
At any rate, we'll see what comes of it. Wish me luck!
