Allow Me To Re-Introduce Myself

Yo. It’s been awhile and I’ve been writing for a year+ now. I’m participating in this month’s WordPress Blogging 101 to help me jumpstart my blogging again. I’ve slacked off and I want to get back on the personal and insert myself into the conversation on food/beer/coffee/whatever consumable.

My first post here summed up what I wanted to do here– write unforgivingly. That was 2013. I’ve written a few things here and there through 2014, but not at the consistency that I initially wanted. I want to do more with this blog but at the moment I am hitting a block and haven’t gotten to working on cranking out posts for this blog.

Long story short– I wasn’t giving any fucks…about this blog. My fucks were given somewhere else in 2014. That’s life, but I still want to up you on what I eat, the blown up spots in SD, and what new breweries have my attention.

So it’s back to the core of this site’s mission– to not give a fuck.
