Probably the least self-directed reason to start a blog.
Earlier today I received a Facebook message. Inside this message was a link. Through clicking the link I came to a blog. On said blog was a post about cold showers. The second paragraph of this post read as follows;
The seed of this idea was planted quiet a while ago. A friend of mine mentioned that he was trying cold showers in the morning, as a way of making himself more alert along with a host of other proposed benefits. A quick Google search reveals claims of fat loss, healthier hair and skin, and improved recovery after exercise amongst other things.
That “friend” was yours truly.
Chuffed with the tip-of-the-hat, I replied saying it was a great post and that I was flattered to receive a mention. I then went on to investigate why he had started blogging. It turns out that he agreed with a friend to post daily, or donate to the Trumpster’s campaign as punishment. This explanation was swiftly followed by an invitation to write a post of my own before midnight kiwi-time, or face the same punishment.
And so, this blog post was born.
Semi-Undercover: I don’t think he has told his friend I am joining in.
Third-Wheeling: This was a cute wee thing between two friends that I’ve managed to get myself invited to and now I’m never going to leave.
Future topics may include anything from: the heart-warming stories of VR headsets relieving the suffering of children, to why lentils are underrated.
Stay tuned and stay classy.
