The past month one of the major sites I write for has been down, and another major site has been making some changes in preparation for a new web design. During this time I haven’t written as much for them as I normally would.
I’ve had a little time to begin to work on some other things, and brainstorm ways to create more value for you who read my blog. While brainstorming, I could just go and do what I think is best, or what I think is most needed for you when you visit my blog.
I meet with a group of guys every other week as part of a mastermind group. None of us have met in person, only online. All of us have wives, multiple kids, and our families are very important to us. We are also all creating content geared toward helping other families.
About a month ago, my wife and I were able to see a screening of the movie, Moms’ Night Out. I know it sounds like a straight up chick flick, which it did have some great mom moments, but it had just as many dad moments too. And all of them were funny!
Last night my wife and I went to see Irreplaceable the Movie. Irreplaceable is a Focus on the Family documentary directed by Tim Sisarich about family, and how it has seemingly lost its meaning in our modern culture. After watching a few YouTube trailers about it, I thought I had a pretty good idea of what it was going to be about.
My assumption was it was going to document the important, almost irreplaceable role that father’s play in family. It was about that, but it was so much more! There were so many things that jumped out at me that I can’t even begin to mention them all in one blog post.
The Amazing Spider Man 2 came out in theaters this past weekend. Spidey was probably my favorite super hero growing up as a kid. Shoot he’s probably still my favorite super hero today! (Dad’s still like that stuff).
You’ve probably heard (a thousand times over) about the recorded conversation of Donald Sterling’s conversation about his views race, society on black people coming to his Clippers games.
I can honestly say it has been a large part of my media consumption over the past couple days. Probably close to an unhealthy amount.
I’ve been blogging for almost three years. I didn’t know exactly what was going to be the result, but I can say I’m pleased with my experience so far. And very excited about what is to come.
My family has been a big part of my blogging. First, they make up most of my subject matter. My wife will occasionally edit some of my posts (when she doesn’t you can see the difference!). And of course, they pose for tons of pictures.
This past Sunday our Pastor shared a story of the time his wife went out of town for the week, and it was him and his four kids. He admitted he didn’t handle it very well, was calling screaming for help, and couldn’t wait for his wife to come back home.
