Hey just a quick post to let you know I haven’t forgotten about blogging…well, at least not completely.
Each year about this time I feel it necessary to explain my little hiatus from the outdoors communication world. You see, for 21 years now I have operated this calendar production business that tends to get rather busy after Labor Day. Indeed, the closer it gets to the end of the year the more time I end up dedicating to my primary source of income. No matter how much I want to think about hunting, trapping and writing about such endeavors…let’s just say I end up, instead, feeding the monster I’ve built as a self-employed businessman.
If you get a moment, check out my website where all the action seems to take place this time of the year in my life. It’s called CalendarsNow.com.
I’m taking some time out to post a quick message to let you know there is light at the end of the tunnel for me and my plan is to be back blogging on a much more regular basis very soon. Usually by mid-December things slow down enough for me that I can start focusing again on blogging matters.
This year I plan to have a series of blogs focusing on different aspects of the upcoming SHOT Show. It’s a special time of the year and in a matter of weeks—6 1/2 to be exact—this unbelievable spectacle kicks off once again in Vegas.
I also have a special announcement I plan to make sometime in early January. It involves an special honor being created to showcase some deserving soul…but more to come on this little tease early in 2012.
I also have several blog posts that have been brewing in my mind that will surely raise the hackles of some folks as it pertains to various sporting organizations. Let’s just say it’s time we quit feeding the monster and we all do some serious introspection as to where we put our hard earned charitable dollars.
Indeed, as you can see just because I haven’t been blogging actively or consistently doesn’t mean the mind has been idle. In fact, I sometimes think it’s wise for most writers to step back from what they do day in and day out to reevaluate their overall mission.
Here’s hoping everyone has been having a happy and successful fall hunting season. Expect to see more blog postings happening again soon!
