There was a time where I wrote a lot. I had multiple weekly columns in various papers or websites. I also contributed numerous stand-alone articles to websites and magazines every month. It was a ton of work, but also very gratifying.
That all started to slow down a few years ago. At the time I was focused on designing and planning a new media company I had the idea for. There always has to be trade-offs. As much as I enjoy writing and having my work published I was excited about the prospect of starting a new company and was willing to make that swap.
I didn't stop all at once, it was a gradual transition over a few months time. As I began to spend more time on the business plan and getting the pieces in place the number of writing gigs I took gradually fell off.
These were tradeoffs I felt I had to make in order to put more time into designing and launching the new business, and they paid off. While I still spend a considerable amount of time building and running my media company I am at a point where I feel I can get back to writing a bit more.
And that is what I envision this blog will be, a chance to write about the things that tickle my mind at the moment. Most of what I write here will be opinion based and much of it will be fairly raw. But It's for my enjoyment, there won't be a schedule of when posts will drop or any reliable frequency. Just the musings of a random guy.
Well, I finally got this first post under my belt. Let's see what happens, shall we?
