One of the reasons for this blog is to put some manner of discipline in my otherwise wildly-disordered personal life. I have successfully (thus far) made it a point to post something, anything, at least once a day, no matter how swamped I get at work, no matter how lethargic I feel at home, unless I'm actually out of town or something. As a bonus, hopefully I'll be able to look back in a couple of years and glean something publication-worthy out of the better stuff. I really think that five or ten years down the road, there will be a better (or at least wildly different) America around us, and there will be as much interest in these times as there was for the late Sixties after all was said and done.
The other blog is a bigger challenge, as it's meant to be informative and educational. The first ten posts or so were easy, as most of them were simply copied from older posts here, cleaned up, edited, and amplified with some new material. Now I'm faced with having to write them from scratch. I'm hoping to set aside a special time every week where I can write up a new entry for The Arms Room. At that rate, I've got about a year's worth of material in C&R rifles alone, so it's just a matter of buckling down and doing it now that the retail holiday madness is past. Look forward to a piece on my Springfield M1903 Mark I this week, as well as a re-write/expansion of the Gewehr 88 essay, covering the Gew.88/05 modifications.
