Welcome to 2015 and the first day of Going Big.
Well it's finally off the ground, blog attempt number two. I somehow have a better feeling about this one versus my last attempt. The idea of keeping my focus loose and simply writing about what I want to talk about is certainly going to make content generation easier, and not having a 'creative team' that has a different idea of where the project is headed.
I decided to launch this project on Jan 1, 2015, simply because it made sense, it's not necessary a resolution or anything of that nature. However when I decided to work up this project the New Year was looming and it made a nice deadline.
My name is Jason, I also go by the callsign/trailname/handle 'Wiki' which is how I'll be signing my post from here on out. In the 'real world' I'm a computer guy and college student, occasionally some of that will leak onto the blog when I do fun projects or events. Outside work I am an avid hiker, airsofter, and obstacle racer; All subjects I'm planning on writing about in the Going Big blog including trip and event break downs and some cool features and media to accompany them.
Obviously each of those hobbies have 'gear' that go with them, so you'll see reviews here for that. I also wear a lot of review worthy gear in 'the real world' from Triple Aught Design, GoRuck, and Prometheus Design Werx; I'll be covering these products in my review segments as well. Basically, as the home page splash screen suggests, this is an 'anything blog', where I'll write about whatever I want to on any given day.
I have already written a few review pieces that I have transferred over from my old blog project to here before I start fresh content.
The final segment I'll address is that Going Big will eventually have a web store. Often I have dreamed up great ideas for t-shirts and Velcro patches, but never brought them to life. I will be doing limited runs of some of these ideas on this blog, more details to follow.
