A New and Little Bit Different Blog

Hello good and faithful followers and readers of The Hillbilly Blogger. It has been quite some time since I have made a meanigful post here.

A lot has happened in my life since that time. I’ve had a lot of health issues, I lost my mom in January, I’ve been bustin’ my butt tryin’ to find a job that I can do from home, which I finally have done and a few other things that have been and still are goin’ on.

I’ve had a lot of time to do a lot of thinkin’ and make a few life changes since mom’s passing. I’ve had to re-think and re-purpose my life since then and it has not been, and still isn’t, an easy road to travel.

I start my job Monday, well actually it’s orientation week and I will only work for two hours a day the first week but it’s not gonna be bad because I’ve done a job like it before, I just have to learn their system.

Anyway, I’m gonna retire The Hillbilly Blogger offically. I’m not gonna take it down but I won’t be posting here anymore after this. I’ve kinda grown in my blogging world, branched out you might say into video and and podcasting as well as writing.

I’ve had a good run with THB, met a lot of good people and I’m hoping you’ll follow me over on my new and final blog, which will have all of the aforementioned methods of blogging all rolled into one neat little package. (And it’s not self hosted this time)

The link to the new blog is Whispers from the Holler, it will resemble THB in that I will be posting about growing up in the mountains, hills, and hollers of the Appalachian Mountains and in this little coal town I live in.

I’ve really just started it so there are only a few posts on there right now, I’m still settling in as it were, gettin’ things fixed up. I’m not in no big hurry and I will only be posting when something inspires me to do so. Something like a memory or a person I once knew or perhaps a place or places I frequented growing up.

Some stories you may have already read, or parts may be familiar to you if you’ve followed along with THB, mainly because some stories will be the same, just written differently and with a somewhat different perspective. As I said, a lot has happened since my last real post here.

And also like I mentioned, I would love to see all my friends and followers from here at THB over on Whispers from the Holler. If you liked the stories here, I’m pretty sure you’re gonna love the new one.

So check it out, follow along, spread the word and I hope to see a lot a familiar faces and names soon. If you choose not to just let me say that it has been a real priviledge knowing you, writing for you and sharing bits and parts of my life with you.

I will be following the your blogs from Whispers from the Holler from THB, so be on the look out for a new follower soon.

Again, thank you and I hope to see you soon!



An Old Project Renewed For 2017

sketchup_gh_1_rm_1Hey folks, some of y’all may remember a while back I was really into 3D modeling in a program called Google Sketchup. Well, over the course of a few weeks at the end of 2016, I worked diligently on a new house project and had it close to, oh, 45% done.

Somehow I lost the files, which means I lost all the work I had done.

Anyway, to make a long story short, I’m building a “game”. You can read a lot more about it here.

In fact, I will be doing my main update posts there and sharing them here, so you can follow me there or just read them from here, however you wanna do it.

I just wanted to let y’all know about this since you’ve been with me for a long time and I would sure like to see some of you over there with me, especially if you have any 3D knowledge what-so-ever.

When I finish it, big emphisis on when, I will upload it to my host so people can “play” it. This, of course, is just my first one, my Alpha Test if you will. I have a lot of plans, but I have to get a lot better with the programs first, and I’d like it if y’all were along for the journey.

Thanks a heap and a bushel!

First Two Posts

I couldn’t help myself and I just know the Opinionated Man will probably fuss at me, but I just have to write about this crazy election cycle and all the crazy stuff goin’ on in America right now.

It seems like a new catastrophe happens every day or so and it’s not as if you get enough of it on the news 😉
