Happy new year, everyone.
I haven’t been blogging much on this blog lately, I have been spending most of my time on my ham radio blog. Â I started that blog around June of 2013 and it has become very enjoyable. Â I spent the last 4-5 months of 2013 writing in this blog, updating articles, finding other similar blogs to comment on, etc. Â I’ve also had people ask me over the air about the blog. Â Some say that they found some article I wrote, and we’ll start to talk about a subject, then others will ask the URL. Â I try not to give out the URL unless someone asks for it; Â I don’t like broadcasting, “hey go visit my blog at www….” because I would consider that spam. Â So I try to keep it to a “ask-only” situation and I have been impressed by how many people have asked about it over the air.
I’m also continuing on my Book Review blog. Â I’m continuing on my journey of reading all the Star Wars Expanded Universe books. Â I didn’t get as far in 2013 as I had wanted, so I am planning to focus more on this goal in 2014. Â I only read and completed 9 novels this year. Â In 2012 I had read 22 novels, and had set a goal for myself to reach 30 novels for 2013. Â Obviously, I didn’t make it. Â Partially due to a new job, and renewed interests in ham radio, and other things going on in life also. Â So I’ve renewed my goal to read more books for 2014. Â I’m not sure I will hit the 30 mark, but I at least want to get back into the 20s.
Over the next 3 months I am planning to spend some heavy-time in the gym and am I also going to eat very clean. Â I have about 2.5 months until my 40th birthday, so I plan to hit it really hard up until then.
We still have our GrapevineBlog also. Â We don’t post in it much anymore, but from time to time we will throw new posts up there.
Not much else new at this point in time. Â Instead of daily posts, I might try weekly posts on this blog for 2014. Â I don’t think I have enough to talk about every day, but I also don’t like going a month or two in between posts either. Â We’ll see what 2014 brings.
