Over the past few months I’ve been working on another blog and though I haven’t had as much time to devote to it as I would have liked, it is off the ground. You can find it at thejournier.com. I’m still developing the niche of the blog but it is mainly about delving deeper into a variety of topics. Being a science geek, I enjoy researching topics and looking at things from different perspectives. In a world dominated by social media that barely scratches the surface of anything of much significance, I enjoy digging into topics and not just stating my opinions based upon scant knowledge but rather finding out what experts have to say…and then stating my opinions based upon a little bit more than scant knowledge!
I’m also a tech geek and I love gadgets, so I will be reviewing any and all that I can get my hands on, especially anything related to photography, fitness, or the outdoors. Recently I purchased an action camera to take with me on the trail and hope to share some of my field study experiences.
Humor will be a part of the blog as well. There’s nothing that I enjoy writing more, even if it only entertains me. The last half of 2015 was rough on me. I found myself dealing with major depression, which is something I’ve never had to deal with before. I was in no condition to be of much help to anyone, so I took some time to take care of myself. Anxiety, I have plenty of experience with but I never knew what depression was all about. I sure learned and I have to say, it stinks! It really threw me for a loop and I can’t even explain why it happened or how but I’ll be researching many topics related to mental health and hope to help others by incorporating some humor into the findings.
It is a little daunting starting over from scratch with a new blog and trying to find an audience. I don’t expect much of one for quite a while but I’ll keep plugging away.
And I still haven’t found the look I want for the site, which is why I hadn’t introduced it yet but over the next year I’ll be focusing primarily on creating content anyway. The look will come later. You’re welcome to check the site out and I will try to add new content every week.
