I’ve been meaning to start a blog for a while, but basically haven’t found anything I could write about that wasn’t just regurgitation from someone else. I’m probably just being too pessimistic. After all, no one has ever created an idea in a vacuum, everything is based on or influenced by something someone else has said.
I don’t know how often I’ll post, it will probably end up being sporadic. The topics of this blog will probably end up being as scattered as the timing of its posts.
I’ve got some ideas for some videos to make on YouTube and will make accompanying write-ups on here. A series for people who want to know the basics of various kinds of guns, and a series surrounding a 5k night run/shooting contest. I’ve got the first in the Guns for Beginners series filmed, but unedited (due to technical reasons and time constraints).
I’ve never been great at finding time to do things that require decent amounts of effort, but ow that I’ve got a newborn child I need to figure it out. For those of you who are childless, they suck every single moment of ‘free time’ right out of your day. I’m not lying when I say my new little girl is totally worth it.
I’m also done with having a YouTube channel that just sits at around 100 subs. I want to really see what I can turn it into. If it grows and allows me to explore more gun stuff, great! If it fails like a crop in the middle of a drought and I cannot get it to grow in any meaningful way at all, well, at least I know that it wasn’t meant to be.
I’m giving myself a trial by fire in terms of time management, let’s see how I do. Who knows, maybe I’ll end up doing better than I expect. They say that boundaries and limitations actually spur creativity.
I’m truly entering a new stage of life. Unlike the sign at the top, there is no turning back. I have no idea how it will go, but I’m looking forward to finding out.
