Wow, this is the third anniversary of this website and it has grown immensely over the years. I didn’t know it was the upcoming anniversary until I received a notification to pay for the domain name again, mainly due to losing my mother recently… so my mind hasn’t been entirely with it. I have been adding a ton of content here lately, without even realizing that the anniversary was coming, so it is somewhat as if my subconscious mind was preparing for it without me consciously knowing.
I have been working on so much stuff here and although on the 21st of November, my mother passed away and I am dealing with several major issues in life, I have still been working on content pretty hardcore here. So, is anything happening differently for this anniversary that just crept up on me during a rather dark moment in my life…?
To begin, a whole new section is being added, yes, yet another new section on here, this one for my foray into the realm of tattooing, something near and dear to me. I am learning the ancient art of hand tattooing, aka poke and stick tattooing, and will also be learning modern tattooing, which I began learning, but never completed many years ago. I got my first tattoo at the age of sixteen and ever since I have been hooked on the art, the expression, the culture, and my ex-wife of a decade was even a tattoo artist. I’ll be sharing my adventures, and teaching a bit of what I already know and what I learn, right here…
I have also been working on concepts for a new layout here, however, nothing is set in stone as of yet… it is well underway and will be getting a facelift for the anniversary, I am just taking my time. I have been thinking that I want this to be the last facelift I give this site for a while, possibly beyond its next anniversary.
Next, I’d debated doing this for a bit, but decided, “what the hell,” and am going to be adding a whole section on fingerboarding here… yes, I know, another new section… but I do and am a lot of things my friends. Fingerboarding is a hobby that my son and I love, and we have so many skatepark pieces and boards and are filming videos and will soon be putting together a skatehaus-style shred video on YouTube. The section here will have a lot of stuff in it, some planned and some still being planned, remember, I’m a bit behind this year, but it’s all coming.
So much more is coming too…
