I approach this with much trepidation - I have never been able to commit to a blog for very long at a time. I have one for private struggles and self-exploration that is best kept to myself. I was once a music journalist, and often consider a return to the exciting world of reviews and interviews.

Of course, then I stop and remember that I have very little time that I care to devote to it. Maybe one day, right? Wait, maybe this is a blog about procrastination!

So as a warning, I offer this: I may not use this thing with any frequency, opting instead to allow the thoughts one blogs about to come to me naturally. If that works for you, it works for me. :)

Good point, Bob! We'll see how it goes, eh?

My feeling is that any posting on AoM is almost incidental, and that people are not waiting for someone's next installment. When you make an entry, it shows up in the listing on the main page until it is pushed off. I think the most likely way then for anyone to see it is when someone makes a comment and that entry reappears on the main page for a while, or if you have a good entry that is mentioned in the main AoM Roundup. Now, if you had a Weblog at a regular space, people would expect something kind of regular. I fail in that respect, but it does not matter all that much because people can subscribe to postings and get them in their e-mail reader.

"There's a man on Youtube called Wranglerstar. His channel deals with modern homesteading, so there's plenty of woodworking, metalworking, leather craft and other things made by his hands. He also does Bible studies. Pretty cool dude."
