Over the years I’ve written in a lot of places on a lot of topics. From mini-fiction for GM’ing game worlds (Fringewar), to single entry blogs (Thanks For Working Today) to my main blog for our business (Advice and Beans). I had a personal blog I kept from 2005-2007 with more personal writing, political ramblings, finance stuff, but I let it go at some point, I’m not sure why. I did keep a backup file of it in case my girls wanted to see it someday, but what are the odds someone will be a able to load up a 27 year old WordPress file when my girls are 16 in 2030 or so? Some of it is available via the Wayback machine though if you’re diligent! I’ll probably move some of the posts my wife liked best over here; you get to see the early days of our courtship via WordPress.
My impetus for this site is perhaps to leave a tiny legacy for my girls, should I die prematurely. Maybe they’ll be able to glean some of their dad’s crazy through his various writings and websites. Maybe it will demonstrate a bit of my journey from confrontational political single guy to Christ-loving husband and father.
It will also be a place for me to blog about things that interest me, current events my children might like to know about when they’re older, or practice my creative writing.
So if you’re bored and care in the least, have a look around. I have a thick skin, so you can always give an honest opinion.
