This month marks the release of my first two feature articles of the year being published in Texas Fish & Game magazine. Our circulation is near 100,000 so it is a blast to share the information contained within these articles with so many outdoor enthusiasts. Both of these articles were a blast to write and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did creating them. Here are the links to the PDFs of these features, which should open in another browser tab for you:
In other news, I have 3 more feature articles planned for the rest of this year. The next one will be coming out in the May issue! More on that in a later post.
In more news, our home’s kitchen is undergoing a major remodel and, seeing that I work from home when I’m not traveling, there have been plenty of distractions around me lately and our favorite room of our home has been off limits for about two weeks now. We both love to cook so this has been harder for us than for most married couples going through this kind of renovation. My lovely wife, Meagan, chronicles some of the joys and pains of this in her own blog, Sarafina’s Kitchen.
The first part of the new year is known as “Show Season” by many who work in the outdoor industry. It starts out with trade shows and local shows in early January and ends up, for me at least, with the ICAST fishing show in July. This year I have been to the Houston Boat Show, SHOT Show, Austin Boat Show, San Antonio Boat Show and, most recently (this last week), the Houston Fishing Show. Before I worked full time in this industry, I had no idea there were so many shows to visit! I love this industry mainly because of the fine people I work with in my advertising and editorial role with Texas Fish & Game and the other media outlets and organizations I work with in the outdoor realm. It has been fun but, man, that’s lots of traveling!
Thank you for letting me share this blog with you. Please also stay tuned to the podcast as I am hard a work releasing a show every two weeks on Thursdays in conjunction with the release of the “BIG” Texas Fish & Game Thursday newsletter that goes out to over 47,000 emails. That takes some time every week in one way or another and it slows down my personal blogging on this website/blog a bit but I was born a writer at heart and will always carry that gift within me. Thanks again for following my work and reading, watching and listening. Remember, you rock!
