Eh? Eh? EH? Bet you thought I was dead, eh? THINK AGAIN.
Want to know when I last actually sat down and tried to write something for this blog, do you? DO YOU? Well it was over a year ago, as it happens. I think (in fact I know, because I just checked) that I managed to squeeze 300 words of verbal effluent out of my fingers before succumbing to a quite debilitating bout of ‘I can’t be arsed with this anymore’. And therein lies the crux of the issue. I just couldn’t be bothered with it. I’d run out of things to say.
There was a lot of other stuff going on as well, none of which was particularly conducive to either a) keeping fit or b) writing about keeping fit. But I will save all that for another day.
A couple of months ago, I got a domain renewal notice for this place. I’d been thinking about resurrecting it for a while, but at the same time I was hesitant to take it on if it was just going to lead to another abortive attempt. But after much thought about direction, content and so on, I’ve decided to give it another bash. It won’t be the same straightforward blog that it’s been in the past because honestly, I just don’t want to sit down and write every week. So I’m guessing it will be a combination of writing and video. But I’ve still got a lot to figure out. It won’t be all about fitness either, although that will be part of it. Who knows? I don’t, as is probably evident.
No idea if I’m pissing in the wind here, and I certainly can’t think of a single reason why anyone who used to read this blog would bother checking back. But it still does improbably well through organic Google rankings and I get as many unique users today as I did when I was updating it regularly. So it would seem silly to let that go to waste.
At some point in the next few weeks, I will take the site down for a complete redesign. All the old content will be here, and the first new post will be a video explaining exactly what happened when I went AWOL, and what my plans are for this place in the future. My aim is for that to happen before Christmas, but it may get pushed back to the new year if I’m stupid busy with work.
Anyway, if, by some small chance, you are reading this and have wondered where I’ve been, then please know that I love you. In a frighteningly real and aggressive sense.
See you all soon.
