Frankly, I've Been Putting This Off For A While

I know I said that I was taking some time off in February to write some "posts" for this "blog", but then real life intruded and I became busy; we moved office space, we hired someone else, and I just got flat out too busy. That's not an excuse, because I hate excuses. Rather, it's just me being honest with you all, and asking you to forgive me. I really should have looked back on the past few years of log posts and noticed that I do have a pretty big production drop off in the beginning of the year, when things start to pick up at work. Remember, I do have a real job, and the piper must be paid. It can't all be cotton candy and vintage bicycles.

If you are curious about what it is I have been doing, you can feel free to read some of my "work" blogs HERE, HERE, and HERE. Oddly enough, in my work life I cater to automobile fetishists, but in my real life I could care less about most cars. Unless they are trying to squash me, in which case I care a great deal.

I'm not going to come back here and make great pronouncements about how many posts I'm going to do, and what about. Instead I am going to tell you where today finds me. When we left off, I said I was going to be losing weight and weighing myself on the regular. That was a lie (though I didn't know it at the time), and as most people do, I lost the weight loss momentum about the time I stopped writing new stuff back in February. I am about the same weight as when I stopped, but I am not the same shape. If you remember, the desire for weight loss was brought on my the purchase of a bunch of pants that were just a little too small for me - but I am wearing a pair now, as I type this. I have been working out, and I have been riding, but I haven't kept track of eating. I will make this pronouncement; I will not bother you with my weight loss goals again. If you want to see that, go to my friend Jared's blog, The Chili's Diet. He is busy with an interesting undertaking, and his blog is worth a perusal.

I do have a couple of things coming up; I had some products that I was sent for review that never got published. I do owe them a few articles, and I'm writing them now. I have also acquired an incredible bike in a trade with Hubbard, and that is going to prompt an article about it, as well as what three of the bikes I have represent. It might be the most interesting article this year, or it might be an incredible bust; with me you never know.

Look for some stuff here over the next few weeks as I begin to fill my funnel again. I had a habit of early morning writing, but I fell out of it, especially since it had become real work having to write product reviews.
I am early morning writing again, and that should bring something in here sooner rather than later.

Thanks for reading (and presumably coming back), and if you enjoy this, you can again look forward to being entertained(?) by my writing again. In the meantime, keep the rubber side down, and your eyes on the horizon.


  1. Welcome back, and like the beard.

  2. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith.

  3. Its meaningful and by some means sharing this to readers like me, can make me want to surf the web to be able to get extra fantastic ideas.

  4. I managed to go although only some of articles or blog posts you share here, but I discover them as relatively interesting and informative sources.
