It’s All Your Fault & I Wouldn’t Do This If You Didn’t…

If you haven’t already, be sure to head over and read part 1 of this series of posts (this is part 8), in particular …

Changes to the Blog – Sort of, Changes to Life, Return of the Vlog?

Changes to the Blog – Sort of. Problem:  I keep saying I need more writing customers.   What I’ve got now isn’t bad, just doesn’t put me on as solid footing as I’d like.

2016 Goals Part II: Pushing Forward on Health

My 2016 goals aren’t written in order of importance, but instead, written in order of coherence.  Basically, the things I can articulate reasonable are the things I’m writing about first. I had some pretty solid workout / health goals for 2015, and I failed to meet them.  Now, that’s not to say I didn’t improve. …
