Why few blog posts? Gone traveling

You may have noticed a dearth of posts on this blog lately.

Call it an occupational hazard: I’m traveling to gather more fodder to post. (Can you guess from my photo where I am?)

A busy itinerary leaves little time for blogging. And I’m without Wi-Fi service for long stretches — even in today’s connected world. Remember when social media didn’t exist (gasp)?

Being unplugged can ne good for the body and soul. One study shows that using light-emitting electronic devices before bedtime may harm sleep patterns, health and performance. Other research found that the presence of a cell phone is distracting and decreases attention and task completion.

Look for upcoming posts of my adventures here.

Welcome to my blog

I’m soft launching this¬†blog (and website) with my first post about airlines, a topic I’ve written about on and off the better part of a decade.

You’ll probably see mostly travel posts over the next few weeks from a soon-to-be-evident location, but I expect this blog to evolve over time.

Think of this as a place you can come to find a variety of interesting stories, photos, charts and graphics here about aviation, travel, health and fitness, economics and more. I like data and I like people, so you’ll see both here. I also may link to some of my writing that’s published elsewhere.
