It’s been a while since I posted anything. To spare you one of my personally most hated words (busy), I have been focusing my attention elsewhere lately. Specifically on writing fitness/bodybuilding articles and YouTube scripts for several sites.
Still, no excuse.
Recently, however, I’ve combined both of my sites into this one. BradJournals.com has now been absorbed right here.
What does that mean? Well, I’ve always been interested in expanding what I write about and would love to do that right here on this site. So, expect more posts about life, minimalism, productivity, life’s everyday challenges, and more. Oh, and of course fitness, health, nutrition, and motivation.
A little help from friends
I’d also like to acknowledge a couple of bloggers who’ve given me their advice, and guidance, and just plain listen to me.
Jason McFadden. Jason writes about everything tech. He specifically writes a lot about our relationship with social media, and his experiences with new phones, tablets, and laptops, and is just an all-around nice dude. Check him out.
Stuart Danker. Stuart writes a ton about writing, and self-improvement, and has a unique style filled with humility and humor. His conversational style of writing will draw you in. Check him out.
Of course, there are many more sites I visit and I’ll be sure to mention them in the near future, but, in the meantime, check out Jason and Stuart.
Will I still write about fitness stuff?
To paraphrase Jim Halpert; Absolutely I will. I’ll try to accomplish this in a few different ways than I have in the past.
- I may link to some of the freelance work I’ve done. When I write for other sites I try extremely hard to relate what I’m writing about to something I’ve tried myself in the past. Additionally, I teach this stuff on a higher ed level so I’ll let that seep into my writing as well.
- I’ll take a more motivational/holistic look at building muscle, getting leaner, etc. No, I’m not going all woogy woogy on you. I just mean that I’ll be looking more at the big picture of it all instead of writing more of what I talk about in my freelance work.
Bonus: I love to hear from you in the comments, so be sure to leave me a note.
I hope to be on here much more on a regular basis and hear your thoughts. Feel free to leave a note in the comments below.
Until next time.

I’m looking forward to reading your upcoming minimalism and productivity stuff. I happen to be on a bit of a minimal/simplify kick this month, wanting less. I’ve decluttered some shelves and purged some closet space, making true progress. I actually gave away two Lego sets I had held onto for over 20 years, no joke! If I stay on this train, I might add the topic back on my own blog.
Fewer possessions, fewer obligations, fewer events…less is more…more time, more freedom, more calm.
And much thanks for the kind shout out 🙂

Thanks, Jason. Yeah, I’ll be doing a little of both lifestyle and some fitness stuff. Hopefully, it’ll go over well.
Glad your back on this blog! It’s been the only one I can relate to in terms of fitness, nutrition and lifestyle wisdom.

Thanks so much, Nick! Means a lot. I hope to get back to regular posting very soon.
Aww, I appreciate the mention, Brad! It’s great that you’re finally consolidating your digital presence, and I’m sure this is the right choice not just for you, but for your visitors to find you as well. Already you’ve posted some interesting articles upon your return. Looking forward for more!

Thanks so much, Stuart!
I think that fitness and our collective concept of fitness has changed post pandemic. Back in the 70s and 80s it was basically two camps: bodybuilding (being as large as possible) and running (running as far and fast as possible). Neither is really healthy. What I’m interested in is questions like this: How much muscle should I carry for my given body size/type? How much muscle should I try to build as I head into my senior years? How do I avoid injury? How do I improve my mobility? Basically, how do I optimize my health and physique for MY body? (as opposed to trying to match some preconceived notion that ‘being jacked’ = being healthy)
