Back in July when I decide to use this blog as an outlet for my writing, I wanted to combine my two passions, writing and hunting. I thought the path I was going to take with it was going to be solely focused on hunting and all things outdoors. In the beginning it was easy and fun because it was new and I had so many thoughts and stories to share. An added bonus was how well received by everyone the content was, which furthered my drive.
But the more I wrote, the more I observed, and the more my passion for writing intensified, I realized I had hemmed my creativity in to just writing about hunting. While hunting is a huge part of my life, and it is part of my identity as a person, it is but one part of my life. I am also a father, a husband, a history buff; I have beliefs and values and my interests are varied. I have other writing projects I am working on that go beyond hunting and the outdoors. In short, there is a plethora of things I love to do and talk about, and ultimately I didn’t want to feel tied down to writing about just one topic.
Those of you reading this that enjoyed my hunting writing, do not fret. I will continue to write about hunting and all things outdoors. That isn’t going away. If anything, my writing will cover a variety of topics, covering as many of my interests as the mood strikes me. I feel this is the best avenue for me as a person and the ability to practice my craft and improve my writing.
Some of the topics will be controversial; and that is ok. I don’t ever expect nor want everyone to agree with me all the time. How boring would life and social interaction be if we all agreed on everything?
Some of the topics will be about my family, some will be about different experiences I have. For some people, some of the topics will be boring if they are of no interest. That’s ok. What I can guarantee is that the content will be 100% me. All of it will be from my heart, as when it comes to writing, I give it my all.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Thank you to those who have supported, liked, commented and shared my blog in the past. I am excited for the direction it is going and the opportunities to express myself it gives me. Change is something that is necessary in life, in order to grow as an individual. I hope you will join me on this new endeavor.
