Hey everyone, Antranik here, as usual. I just wanted to throw in a few words to wrap things up here before the year closes out.
About a year ago, around the end of 2010, I went to Belize with a few wonderful friends. That was a beautiful, inspirational and very fun vacation. After Belize, the first week and a half of 2011 was spent in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, where the vacation became even more liberating. During the entire trip I was fathoming random ventures I could make with my life after the vacation. It was during this time in Playa Del Carmen where the spark of starting my blog came out. I thought I would find great joy with creating content on the internet and started getting really excited by the thought of starting something new and making a new impression on the Internet. I was getting a lot of good feelings from the idea and started cultivating the idea.
When I came back to LA from vacation, I started researching like mad about how to start a blog and what to write about and what name to choose and so forth. I remember those first few weeks of 2011 when I kept saying I wanted to start my blog but still had zero content. I fiddled with it for months, trying to create a foundation for it and understand what I was going to do with it. It took a long time but I believe April 20, 2011 was the public release of this site. Fast forward eight months now to the end of December and what’s happened? I have about a couple hundred blog posts and getting just about a thousand unique visitors a day which is quite more than I ever expected.
Thank you everyone for visiting and reading my website. This has been a great learning experience for me and I hope to update more often especially come the new year. I haven’t been able to update as often as I wanted during this holiday period. Getting in the groove of things can be hard during all the (awesome) distractions that come with holidays. For example, I went to big bear recently to go skiing and snowboarding with friends:
I’ve also been helping my brother with the backyard and today we were successfully able to create supports, do some trimming and setup a slackline.
The slackline should be a great thing to tinker around with. Especially because I want to be agile, flexible and balanced. My new years resolution is to do some yoga everyday and be able to walk on the slack-line like a boss. So, I will continue coming out with random, hopefully relevant, blog posts. In the mean time, thank all of you for visiting and I wish everyone a badass 2012 that’s to come. It’s almost hard to believe 2010 has been over for a while, let alone 2011, and 2012 is almost here! Woohoo! Time!
