Blogging Anniversary – Thank you for Reading!

Well folks, it’s officially been a year since I wrote my first blog post. If you’ve followed my work at all, you will know that I wasn’t a huge fan of blogs when I first ventured into the outdoor writing world. I used to think writing articles was much better and blogs were too common and there were too many of them around. There are indeed a lot of outdoor bloggers after all. I used to prefer articles as they can be timeless where blogs are time stamped with a date and seem to have a shelf life for reader.  What drove me to start blogging was my need to share products, passions, tips, and more with the world in a more informal scenario that wouldn’t fit into the setting of an article. After all, writing is cathartic for me. I need to express creativity in my life and this is one of the ways I do just that.

I want to humbly thank all of you who have followed my success in the outdoor industry and who have read my blog over the last year. This year has been awesome in so many different ways and I have been able to share some of those successes with you though this format. I hope to continue to write and inspire those who read my blog, articles, or books and who watch my videos or listen to my podcasts to be the best they can be in the outdoors. I have been very blessed and seek to be a blessing to others. My main niche seems to be helping others getting started doing what I do and I love doing it. If you have any questions for me, please reach out to me at and I will do my best to either incorporate your question as part of this blog or reply to you directly. I also read and try to respond to all of the video comments I get from my YouTube channel. In whatever way you connected to me, I really hope you will stay connected and thank you so much for connecting with me. The best years are still ahead of us and let us never forget we have it pretty good here in our current day and time with all of the awesome technology and product innovations to help us on the water and in the field. You guys are awesome!Photo Oct 26, 12 39 20 PM
