In the past, I have used my blog to discuss various things going on in my life when it revolved around hockey, reffing, gaming, vacationing, and other things. Last year, I got out of habit of doing this. Time went by, and while I had the desire to blog things, I never really jumped back into it. Status updates on twitter and Facebook were about as extensive as I got. It wasn’t until I took a little inspiration from a friend of mine that I decided to resurrect my blogging habit. I have been taking the time to read Bobby Evenhouse’s blog for a while now, and a recent post called “No Matter What, Write Everyday” really did inspire me to change my habits for the better.
Why did I create this blog in the first place? To remember all the great times I had in my life. To maybe take the information and write a biography one day. I have seen the title of the book in my mind a few times….
Yea, cheesy I know, but I could write a 100-200 page book on everything that has happened. From many of the games I have played, championships win and lost, and all the interesting people I have gotten to know through playing hockey through the years. I don’t know if writing a book is in my future, but I am seriously considering it.
When it comes to writing though, if I am not putting these things down on my blog, then it is kind of hard to put them down in a book later. Memoirs are worthless if you aren’t writing them down somewhere. So consider this a blog reboot or a rebirth of a writer.
