Odds and Ends - New Year edition

Yep, I know. New Year's day we make resolutions. I procrastinated and just got around to it now. 

I did, however, take some actions. Facebook and Twitter are gone from my personal life. I'm not on either except in a very limited sense to promote my business, my books, and other people's books. As best as I could tell, both are bad for my mental health, so both are on very short leashes.

I've also (as evident by this post) decided to start blogging a bit again. It will be on stuff that interests me and will be a mostly politics-free zone. I know that authors John Scalzi, Anne Rice,  and Chuck Wendig are big on pontificating on the liberal side and there's Vox Day with his sycophants on the other, so the field is already over-saturated with such lunacy anyway. 

Expect pictures on places I go or things I find amusing. 

Maybe even some video. 

I'm sure I'll try some other stuff but we'll just have to wait and see. I'm winging it on content which is exactly the opposite of all the recommendations for having a profitable blog, but I think it will be more fun this way. 

Take care!

 Today's hike was in the Garden of the Gods in Colorado. Yes, it should be snow-covered. Instead, the weather was wonderful.
