How long has it been? Probably months? It feels like years.
After almost seven years of martial arts blogging at Striking Thoughts I finally had enough and pulled the plug. What lead to the demise?
- Not growing as a martial artist
- Work/life and related stuff
- Boredom with blogging
I know, I know, I left a few fans high and dry without farewells. It wasn’t personal. Weighing the pros and cons I decided that pulling the plug and riding off into the sunset would be the best option.
Fast-forward to…now. Tater Fist, that ol’ rascal from Fist in the Frost blog, tells me that he’s getting the band back together. Says he’s trying out a new blogging platform called “Ghost.” Says he’d like ol’ Bob to contribute.
When he told me he’s calling the new blog “Harmonious Fists” I couldn’t resist. Heck, who could resist contributing to a blog with a 1970-esque porno film name?
So here I am–back from the dead! Will this be a repeat of Striking Thoughts? Doubtful. I just don’t have the time. But when I do get the hankerin’to blog, rest assured, you can expect me to consistently NOT meet that same high standard I set those many years ago!
Sure, I could have stayed in the past. I could have even been king. But in my own way, I am king.
Hail to the king, baby.
