September has finally arrived, for some it’s just another month, for me it means back to school and an end to another golfing season…or should I say a summer without golf. Depending on where you live on this planet, you may have the luxury of being able to golf year-round. Unfortunately for me and the people in Ontario, Canada September is the final month of golf before you have to start worrying about possibly losing your ball in a pile of leaves in the middle of the fairway.
This would be a great time to notify everyone of my plans for the rest of the calendar year, with the golfing season winding down in this part of Canada, you may be wondering how active I will be on this blog. The answer is very.
I plan on sticking to the same schedule which is posting three times a week, I may bump that up to four or more just to challenge myself and put out content in the off-season that way by next year that can be my weekly schedule for the new season.
I have talked about how if you want your patience to be tested, then starting a blog is a great way to do so, at first you will want to see fast results, instead you need to be thinking long-term. By me planning for the off-season and already thinking of next year that is what I consider long-term, instead of someone quitting for the off-season and waiting until the new season. By me writing in the off-season that will help me grow this blog in the long run.
There are a lot of golf blogs out there, a lot. One I really enjoy reading is by Jim called The Grateful Golfer. You see, Jim is recovering from his final round of cancer treatment and has been unable to golf this year because of it…yet up until his final round of treatment he was writing almost daily. Unfortunately, this entire year has been an off-season for him, yet he still writes on a consistent basis.
Of course, it helps when you have a passion for golf which Jim and I both share, and that is very helpful just in general when trying to write about something. Anyways, I would like to say thank you Jim, since I came upon your blog I have enjoyed reading your content every morning.
During the off-season, I plan on doing the same and that is to write on a consistent basis.
I brought up Jim because I wanted to let everyone know that no matter what you are doing or trying to accomplish, if anyone before you has done it, so can you.
So, don’t worry I am not going anywhere while I am back in school, if anything I will be more active.
* On a final note, take the time to give Jim your best wishes during his recovery. *
