Wow… It’s been a while. My actual original domain, Red Hog Diary.com has been sat on by some male enhancement squatter. I suppose I should take that as a sign of flattery that the name recognition generated just a hint of commercial viability. I hope they are doing better with it than I did. I had fun sharing my world view with, at one point, up to 900 readers per day. That was huge in my world but short of the critical mass required to actually generate ad revenue. In the end trolls wore me out and I shut everything down.
I found sharing my thoughts cathartic and The Red Hog Diary filled some big holes in my life at the time. Suddenly, maybe in part as a result of this last election, I’m feeling those holes again. I’m in a unique time and place where I will have a lot of time to write for a bit. I’ll see if it catches and if it does, maybe we can hang out. I’m thinking the focus of my writing here might be something to do with finding a new way forward in this post political correct world we seem to have found for ourselves.
A book I am reading has really grabbed my attention lately. Leaders Eat Last. From what I’ve gathered so far the idea is that we can only be our best when we feel safe in our immediate environments. Our productivity and creativity shines when we feel secure in our own skin. That sense of security affords us the ability to be at our best in all we do and gives us resilience in those situations where we face outside threats. I wish the only outside threats any of us needed to worry about were severe weather or an alien invasion. Such is not so. Especially now.
And That is why I think I need to write again. I’ll let you know when there is something to see here via Facebook. Until then… This feels good. Welcome home.
