A Blogger On The Go!

After my post late yesterday evening, you all should know I'm a super busy dude who has had the majority of his model time taken away by work. Alas, don't cry for me for being employed is generally important especially in regards to providing for my family and other essential things like buying new kits.
Any way, that being said, I don't often find myself behind a computer screen any more - ain't got time for that...So how will I continue to blog?
Well the 21st century has brought about a great many innovative tools and devices to make our lives a bit easier. You know, things like internal combustion engines, or Dragon's DS tracks. Or for the sake of this post, the smart phone.

Yes, I installed the Blogger app on my mobile device which means I can now blog from places far removed from my home's LAN line like convention centers, the doctor's office or my in-law's toilet seat.
Granted, the bells and whistles aren't as flashy but it gets the job done. At this point, beggars can scarce be choosers. There is still much experimenting to be done but otherwise I am now a mobile model blogger!
Happy modeling! Carry on.

Where Have I Been?

Well, that is a good question and if you're a concerned reader lamenting my absence I have come to put you at ease.
Back in mid February I was away for several weeks, tending to the duties that come up from time to time for military personnel such as myself.
Not long after, I started a new job. While this fresh opportunity was something I had been pursuing for years, it also meant less bench time. A lot less.
Prior to this new working arrangement I had the capability of working on hobby related ventures nearly every night for about two hours a piece. Now, I'm lucky to get a seat at my workbench three nights a week. I have to wake up far too early in the morning for me to spend all hours of the night airbrushing, gluing, or searching for lost parts.
And blogging?
That has clearly suffered as well. Quite frankly, I'd rather spend what time I do have on actual modeling than simply writing about it. At least for now.
So what does this all mean?
I would like to carry on this meager blog but it will certainly be a shell of its former self. As for the Sprue Cutters Union, I will try to continue that as best I can but have just recently decided to limit its frequency to once a month rather than once a week.
Despite the lack of new content on this website, I hope you'll continue to follow my Facebook page which will continue to provide the same great references, inspiration, and thoughts on the subject of modeling. And of course, my work will still be posted there as well.
As always, thank you for your support and readership! Happy modeling!
