So you want to know about me? I am a Christian, a husband since 1992 and father of two, a boy and girl. I am conservative in most of my thoughts and actions and care about many important issues.
I have the mother blog, Joe’s Musings that I began in 2012 just before Hurrican Sandy took a hard shot at the Eastern Seaboard. One of my first blog posts was about Frankenstorm as it was first named. Since then I have written 660 more posts on that blog. But as my interests in specific subjects broadened I created five more targeted blogs so that I can reach unique audiences. Here is a synopsis of each:
Faith By Acts – This is where I will share my faith in many ways, including the way I show it by how I choose to devote my time.
Fiction Playground – This is where my fiction will reside. If you collected all my writings and tallied the words devoted to fiction it would dwarf all my other prose. This includes my science fiction trilogy, young adult novel and in progress mystery The Family Secrets.
Chasing the Blooms – Care to take a peak at my photography? Be warned it is heavily influenced by my love of flowers. You will get the low down on gardening and floriculture in this blog.
Alpine & Clinchport Railroad – In January of 2016 I started a new hobby in creating a model railroad. On this blog I share my experience getting to know the hobby as well as the intricacies of creating a working layout. I want to connect with other hobbyists to share in their wisdom.
Joe’s Musings – This is the mothership, the one that started it all. Six hundred sixty posts later it is the forum when i don’t fit in the other four parameters. You may read about music, politics, whims or anything here.
A couple of years ago I tried something called Come See the Fourth in All 5o States. It was supposed to be an invitational blog challenge where people all over the USA would take photos of the way they celebrated the Fourth of July and share them. I hope to reboot this idea and if so then I will try to do it again during the Christmas season in 2017.
