Welcome to my new blog! I have had the occasional thought of having a blog for quite some time now, and now I have finally decided to take the plunge.
First a little history of my online activity– I published my first personal website at the age of 14 and it has been active in some form for the past eight years. I originally established it to document my fishing trips and display the flies that I tied. Life went on, and as events happened in life, there were times that my website was out-of-date and neglected because of the lack of time and inspiration. Recently I tried to resurrect my old website using MS Frontpage and I was not pleased with the archaic 20th-century look I was achieving. I determined to explore my options for setting up a blog, and after thinking about it, I realized a blog would better suit my needs; as life proceeds, content can easily be updated. WordPress seemed to be a very contemporary blogging platform, and after a short learning curve it also seems very user-friendly. So here I am.
Topics I hope to cover in this blog include: fly fishing, fly tying, photography, hiking, running, backpacking, maps, future interests, my Faith, and life-in-general. I realize that since my blog subject matter will potentially be so diverse, it may limit the number of readers I have, but no big deal.
