Merry Xmas!

Just wanted to check in and wish all you guys a very Merry Christmas from us here at Written Road! As for me, working from home updating numerous blogs is hard and is taking its toll. It’s difficult to ever switch off because you keep wanting to get things written. […]


Moving to NYC

I’m married now, been everywhere, and finally earning enough scratch to stay afloat, so my wife and I are relocating to New York City, home of all my childhood hopes and dreams. Are plan was to buy a house here in Columbus and stay for a few years and then […]


Swamped But Loving It
