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. I started that blog around June of 2013 and it has become very enjoyable. I spent the last 4-5 months of 2013 writing in this blog, updating articles, finding other similar blogs to comment on, etc. I’ve also had people ask me over the air about the blog. Some say that they found some article I wrote, and we’ll start to talk about a subject, then others will ask the URL. I try not to give out the URL unless someone asks for it; I don’t like broadcasting, “hey go visit my blog at www….” because I would consider that spam. 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. I’m continuing on my journey of reading all the Star Wars Expanded Universe books. I didn’t get as far in 2013 as I had wanted, so I am planning to focus more on this goal in 2014. I only read and completed 9 novels this year. In 2012 I had read 22 novels, and had set a goal for myself to reach 30 novels for 2013. Obviously, I didn’t make it. Partially due to a new job, and renewed interests in ham radio, and other things going on in life also. So I’ve renewed my goal to read more books for 2014. 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. 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. 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. Instead of daily posts, I might try weekly posts on this blog for 2014. 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. We’ll see what 2014 brings.
