About

Welcome to my personal blog. I am a pretty prolific blogger, having already established two blogs that are successful beyond my wildest dreams (maybe I’ll tell you about those one day).

On both of those blogs I followed conventional blogging wisdom: specialize. Refine your topic to reach a refined, loyal audience. That strategy certainly works to generate large audiences. The only problem is. . . honestly, writing about the same thing week after week gets really boring.
This blog will fix some of the mistakes I made on those blogs. First, I like writing for the sake of writing. It helps me refine my thoughts and though processes. Writing is also a simple creative outlet for me – it’s something I enjoy. Instead of tightly focusing my topic, this blog is my platform for opening up. This blog offers the freedom to write about whatever I desire to write about. Hopefully this will keep my enthusiasm high, and we’ll both reap the benefit. I plan to cover whatever catches my interest at the moment.

Occasionally I become fascinated with a new topic and spend all my waking hours thinking (and writing) about it. You can expect this blog to cover security topics (both physical and digital). I will certainly cover preparedness-related topics which is a huge personal area of interest at the moment. I will talk about firearms, self-defense, DIY projects. You will read about my successes and failures at starting a very small homestead. You can also expect the occasional rant about personal freedom, privacy, politics. . . and more.

Another mistake I made on old blogs was failing to ask for support. I’m going to ask for your financial support right up front, through Patreon. Maintaining a blog to a high standard, and consistently creating content is hard work. Though I have two fairly successful blogs, I’ve also started several that didn’t last very long at all. Receiving your financial donations will help to both pay for the site, services, and my time to create content you receive value from, and obligate me to create that content.

I’m very excited to open this new chapter. Again, I hope I can offer something of value to many of you, and a lot to some of you.
