Does Rob’s Surf Report have an origin story? I started this blog because I wanted to write, and because I wanted to be part of a community of writers. It’s hard to find people who write in your everyday life sometimes – especially when everyone you come into contact with is, for the most part, on the opposite end of the writing spectrum. I chose a subject that I am interested in – surfing – and I themed the blog after that, using it as a metaphor for life. I didn’t want to blatantly point it out, but I do try to hang a lantern on it sometimes.
I posted sporadically at first, then I didn’t post for like a year or more because life ran away with me; then I decided to give up writing altogether. I logged into WordPress with every intention of wiping out my blog in its entirety and an hour later I was clicking Publish. I sometimes lose control of my urges, you know. I decided to give it another go and for the last few months I have been blogging, slogging it out when necessary, but I have determined that I am still interested in writing and still interested in being part of the writing community. So who’s with me on this?
