Three Months Deep
I started this blog on October 24, 2008 with no damn idea what I was doing or how to do it. I made a post or two here and there, but nothing serious until October 26, 2011. Since the renewal, I’ve been posting on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays. (Who else works those days??? Can’t remember....) Yes! I am a Parrothead!
After the first annual Conched in Key West Bar Crawl, I was simply inspired by some of the bloggers that I spent the weekend with. Rum Shop Ryan, Rum Connection, Coastlines and Tan Lines and even the blog portion of Team Cocktail’s web page just set me off!
I loved what these people were doing! They were living a great life and sharing it with whoever was willing to watch.
I said to myself, “Self! You have a blog! Do something with it!”
Actually it was my wife that suggested that I put a little more effort into this thing, and I owe her a big thanks for it! Writing for the blog has made my day job a lot easier and has also been a lot of fun!
Those of you that read this thing are part of an elite group! I don’t have thousands of page hits a day, but I really appreciate every single one of you that checks in from time to time! I hope you are enjoying what you see.
Three months in and I’m already thinking that I don’t have any idea what I’m going to do for my next story or photo, but I come up with something... three times a week. That’s making me a better person and a better writer and photographer.
If I share an opinion or beer or whatever with you that you may have never thought of, that makes it all the better for me! I dig it when I get comments on the blog, although they are few and far between. As I’m sure any blogger will tell you, it’s awesome when someone cares enough to drop you a comment on the blog.
So, to make a short story long... Thank you to everyone who is dropping by!
I appreciate you!
