All this time, I thought my blog was posting on Twitter, silly me. Apparently there was a problem with the Twitter app I had installed on the blog. Well, it's fixed now, and we should be live. Woohoo. To follow on Twitter or any of my socials, just click on the handy button on the right top sidebar. Thanks for reading my insane drivel.
So it begins. A new blog. (Oh no… not another one!!)
Though this blog is new, I’m not at all new to blogging. I’ve been keeping a fairly active blog of my boat and all the antics associated with that life since 2004. Over the years, it became a fixture in my life, just like my boat did. While the original purpose of the blog was to be basically a “travelogue” of my (and my then-wife’s) antics as we sailed the seas, it evolved into a much more personal journal. Especially after experiencing incredible loss and tragic turns of events not long after it launched. It became my outlet, my way of “making sense of it all”.
I also came to appreciate what writing brought me, and others, by way of the Andiamo blog. Within a couple of years, I had a surprisingly loyal following of readers. Some who would email me out of the blue if I didn’t update the blog within a month or so. It was quite a revelation. Seemed that people liked the strange drivel that I was posting.
