My indecisiveness on choosing a topic for this blog

It's been quite some time since I have written a post for this blog.  Over a year, in fact.  In that period of time, my interests seem to naturally rotate from one to another in a cycle loosely based on the seasons.

In the winter, I tend to become more interested in personal finance, as it is obviously too cold to grow food from plants (at least here in Asheville).  The temperatures also demotivate me from weight lifting, as I train in my unheated outdoor garage.

When winter is nearly over, and spring is on the horizon, gardening starts becoming my main focus during this time period.  A new year of working and experimenting with different plants and different growing conditions dominates my thoughts as I envision the fruits of my labor in the coming months.

As the heat of summer hits, my interest in physical fitness--weight lifting, to be more specific--reaches an all time high.  Since growing up in hot and muggy Florida, my body seems to naturally enjoy higher temperatures for working out.  Seems counter intuitive, I know... but summer usually brings renewed interest in becoming physically fit.

Realizing all of this, I have decided to change the focus of this blog (yet again).  This time, however, it will not be dedicated to any one topic or hobby.  I have discovered that I enjoy writing about many different things, and not all of said things tend to cross within the boundaries of each other.  While there is certainly a way to write about how growing vegetables can be a way to improve your personal finance skills or improve your deadlift PRs, such specific and narrow ideas limit what posts I can write about in just one blog.  Different topics for posts hit me at different times, as well, so I don't want to feel confined to writing about only one topic when I have a great idea about something else.

I have decided from this post forth, I am going to blog about whatever strikes me as interesting at the time.  Since this blog is supposed to be for my enjoyment, I am not going to stress myself out about staying on topic or making every post a hit.  I am simply going to share my research and discoveries about my interests over the course of time. 

If you are a reader of my blog, I hope to impart some of the more helpful knowledge from my experiences to you.  Stay tuned for more to come soon.
