I don’t know why I’m even bothering to write this introductory post. Considering this is a brand new blog and no one even knows it exists yet, the odds of anyone actually reading this are somewhere between slim and infinitesimal.
Heck, even if this blog somehow became a huge hit someday with thousands of followers it’s not likely anyone would ever dig deep enough to find the first post.
So why bother?
Well, there is always the possibility that some future alien race will stumble onto the remains of our long-gone civilization and they’ll want to know where things started to go wrong.
Or maybe it’s just for me. This first post kind of sets the tone for the direction of Dad With A Grill. If I ever lose sight of where I’m going and need a refresher I can come back here and remember why I started the blog to begin with.
And the answer to that is: Because.
Yup, that’s all there is to it. You see, I’ve blogged on other sites before and the intention was always to create a money-making site that would generate tons of effortless cash so I could quit working at a ridiculously young age, buy lots of cool things for my family, and travel.
And it never quite worked out.
Yes, I’d get some readers and I’d build a nice little site that would start earning a few hundred bucks a month. But then I’d hit a wall. It just stopped being fun because it was all about the money.
Instead of writing about topics that interested me I stuck to a narrow range of subjects that had produced income in the past. I thought I could just keep replicating each success and create a slew of passive income streams.
But I inevtiably burned out and tired of writing the same things again and again.
So I’m starting Dad With A Grill without much of a plan at all.
As the name suggests I am a dad and I own a grill. It’s not a big stretch to asume that I’ll be writing a lot about parenting and raising a family, plus grilling some delicious food to feed that family.
But I don’t see it becoming a strictly “grilling” blog or another “dad” blog. I’d rather keep my options open and reserve the freedom to write about whatever topic interests me.
You’ll probably find lots of articles on saving money or making money as those are always two things I’m interested in. Some other categories I’ve already set up include Career, Health, and Entertainment.
Would I like to make some money with this blog?
Duh. Who wouldn’t? But this is more of an outlet for me to practice my writing and share my thoughts. Any money earned is just gravy on top of some delicious garlic-mashed potatoes.
So hop on and come along for the ride! I can’t promise where we’ll end up but we’ll have a good time and enjoy some delicious food along the way!
