Thus begins my adventure back into blogging, which I did for many years at various web domains. After over ten years of blogging, I took a break as most of my online posting activities took place on social media. Recently I had the itch to start writing again and thought I might be interested in sharing some of my adventures regarding running, weight training, beer-drinking, technology projects, and who knows what else.
I have no idea where this new adventure will take me or if it will be a lasting interest or the last glimmer into my previous love of online hobbies. From the early days, I took part in BBS, ran web forums multiple times, and even had a hand in starting the first fantasy football league podcast, which I continued with my friend for quite a few years until we grew tired of the project. We lost any significant listener base to ESPN and the like. At around the same time, I took my then-current blog, exported all the posts to a file, printed the material into a hardcover book, and promptly shut that blog down. If you knew what to look for, you could find all my old blogs, forums, and websites on the Internet Archives, but those stories are for another day and another post.
So, I have been down this road before, and I do not intend to make any promises or have any grand ideas about what this might become. In the last two years, I have become serious about my distance running, and during the long runs, I find I have lots of time to think and collect my thoughts. During these runs, I started to believe that it might be beneficial for me and maybe beneficial or even entertaining to others if, at times, I record what thoughts I collect during those moments of quiet solitude.
