Top of the Fourth

Back in the saddle once again. This will be my fourth time writing/posting a blog. I originally started this blog/website back in 2005-2006. I built up a fairly reasonable readership of approx. 8-10,000 hits a month. Not a lot by some blog standards, but it was a good start for me.

My second attempt began when I moved from writing my own website html to going to TypePad as my platform, and my readership dropped.

My third attempt was moving from TypePad to WordPress and my readership dropped by another two thirds…  And I hated it. I hated the blog, what it had become. The loss of contact. The loss of affiliate sales. And especially the content.

Hated it.

Hated it and was completely bored by it…

If I was so, I’m sure you were too…

So, for the last few months I’ve been retooling it – simplifying it, getting rid of unwieldy themes, lack-luster affiliate sales programs, turning it back into something that I’ll enjoy. Because, if there’s one thing I’ve learned building my reputation as a trainer, it is, if you don’t like what you’re doing, if you don’t know what, how, or why you’re doing it, no one will pay attention. No one will want to work with you.

If you know me personally, you know that one of the things that differentiates me from a most others, is that I’m a polymath-in-training. I am “into” a lot of different things and wear a lot of different hats. Art, writing, training, martial art, anthropology, physics, psychology, nutrition, endocrinology, comparative religion, mythology, meditation, yoga, pop culture, commodities trading, comics, etc… And back when I actually had a readership, this blog reflected that…

So, in the future, we’re going to move back in that direction. You’re going to see more artwork, more written content, more links to things that interest me (and hopefully you as well). Just… More.

It’s time to get back to the things I love.

And share them.

Pitcher’s on the mound, winding up…
