Yes! Right now I’m writing a nice post about whatever the heck I want! I don’t care if it does well. I don’t care if it ranks well on the search engines. I just want to write for the sake of writing.
It’s Sunday. The very day before Memorial Day. I participated in a regatta yesterday from San Diego all the way up to Oceanside. With all the years of experience I have in the ocean and on boats, I got seasick nonetheless. I got cold, tired and miserable. I felt sleepy. The dang race took like 6 hours and that’s not counting the time it took to get to the starting line and the time it took to run the starting sequence. Needless to say, I spent 9.5 hours on the boat. Sick for 5-6 of them! Depressing. But hey, we all have our bad days. I’ve spent thousands of hours aboard all kinds of floating objects, both fast and slow. So, I guess I shouldn’t be complaining too much about this one. I love sailing and I’ll be back!
Well, I’m busy working on a few sites. A particular one is driving me nuts right now as I can’t quite get it the way it needs to be yet. But it’ll get there. On the other hand, I’m quite happy that I’m home. I’m nice and warm, wearing some PJ’s and a hoodie jacket. I’m listening to Led Zeppelin and the occasional Eminem rap. I’m not cold or seasick. Just drowning in work, that’s all. :) But honestly, I couldn’t be enjoying my day more. I think I’ll have another cup of espresso!
Consider this a warning. Well, more like a call for your attention; an alert. Today is Thursday. Also the first week of May 2011. What’s so important about that? Last month was my 10th wedding anniversary. I managed to pull something off that most people cannot. And I’m happy to say that thanks to that, my wife is driving around in a brand new white Mustang. How about that? But, that’s not why I’m writing this post. This site has been up since 2002; since late 2009 in it’s current form. Today marks the day where I’m going to aim at scheduling my blog posts. What does that mean? It means that from now on and until further notice, I will be posting a new article on my blog every Thursday. This alert is my excuse for a blog post this week. However, next week expect the first in a sequence of posts all on the same great day of the week that marks the close proximity of the weekend. Stay tuned and subscribe. Yes, right now. Subscribe. Find the little link on this page that says subscribe, click it and join me. You’ll make me happy and I will be eternally grateful. Because writing for others is better than writing for yourself. Until next week… -DC
Yet another year has blown by! Faster than we can even understand. It seems like only a few months ago we were buying Christmas gifts for what is now last year’s holidays! Here I am at almost 10PM on Christmas night writing my second post on what is going to be the new incarnation of dannycruz.com.
At the moment of this writing, the website is as white and plain as snow itself. But it won’t be like that for long. So if you are reading this post at a much later date, or simply want to reminisce on how the site looked at it’s early stage, I’m attaching a photo. This photo represents the site at the moment of this writing.
I’m keeping this short… I hope you all had a great holiday. I hope your Christmas made you feel like a kid again. I certainly saw myself as a kid all over again when I took my son to the beach today to try out his new skimboard. First steps in surfing on a beautiful day in SoCal.
Merry Christmas and good night! -Danny
