It’s been a while since I’ve written. I tried my best to break my cycle and not allow a lull in my writing during Winter, but I obviously failed. There were other factors contributing to my lack of desire to write, but there’s no need to go into them. Anyone who follows me on Twitter or knows me in real life is well aware of the issues I’ve had. But I’m back.
Spring has arrived, at least here in the deep South. I’ve been enjoying the warm weather and sunshine. I’ve begun the planting season and already have squash, zucchini, tomatoes and peppers growing. My rabbits have given birth to their second litter of kits. I did a lot of maintenance on my trucks over the last few months and they are both running better than ever. I got a promotion at work last week and I’m working on another one. While I haven’t been writing much, I haven’t been entirely unproductive either.
The gang got together for a meetup in New Orleans a couple weeks ago. Most of it was fun, but it ended badly for me. Some of the events of the meetup led to a restructuring of a lot of social circles, hopefully for the better. I finally met Matt Forney, who I’ve been corresponding with for a few years now. I also met commenter BA for the for the first time, along with the bright and crazy Jeremy Sploosh. All great people. Forney gave me a stern lecture about my lack of writing. It’s nice to know my absences are noticed.
There’s a lot of turmoil in the Manosphere right now, which isn’t exactly uncommon. Jack from Viva la Manosphere showed his true colors as a leech who is out for naught but money, stealing content and trying to market other peoples work for profit. I never liked the guy. From the moment Viva popped up, I haven’t had a good feeling about him. My good friend Young Hunter felt the same way. A few others were suspicious as well. Now we all know what he’s really after and hopefully everyone will stop linking him and helping him make money from the work of others.
Tucker Max has started a new website to fill a supposedly empty niche, namely straightforward advice about dating, women and self improvement. I suppose he didn’t notice the giant fucking Manosphere already occupying said niche and doing a good job of it. Anything you want to know about women, dating, lifting, vitamins and supplements, testosterone, starting a small business or just correcting your posture and body language can be found right here on the Manosphere. Tuckers new site will be nothing but remarketing our work in a more PC manner to make money for himself. We all know this. There’s little we can do about it, aside from exposing him for the lying opportunist he is. Several blogger like Danger and Play and Uncle Mitch have already done so.
I’ll do my best to start posting regularly again. Give me some feedback, let me know what you’d like to see me write about in the weeks to come. I could use a little help and some ideas to get the ball rolling again. It’s good to be back.
