It is time to finally say goodbye. Copy, print-out or rip off all your favorite recipes from the site. As of November 15th, www.sonofgrok.com will be no more.
Its come time for renewal and I simply can’t justify renewing the site any further. It is not that I don’t have any content. I have tons of content and recipes that I have been just iching to get up here. I have had offers from people to write guest posts and I was even provided with an excellent 33 page manifesto from someone on how going Primal changed their life. Unfortunately what I don’t have is time.
I am not like some in that this is my income and livelihood. In fact I work a very difficult and strenuous corporate job that most people in, you could probably expect to find overweight, unhealthy and unhappy. I am lucky enough that thanks to being primal… I just have the unhappy part of it. I work long hours and those hours are hard worked. I don’t mean in a way like building houses or laying brick all day (I could handle that). I mean in the way of stress and mental exhaustion. By the time I get home from work, I am lucky if I can even get motivated to exercise much less post.
Everyone tells me that I should use the website to make money. I was going to do that. I was working on some workout plans and some recipes books that I would put up on the site for free download and accept donations. Unfortunately putting together that kind of material at the quality that I would consider acceptable is more time consuming than I can spare and I am not wealthy enough to hire people to write all my content for me like some.
Hence the site is finally going down. It seems like it has already been dead for some time and I apologize for that.
I hope that it wont stay dead forever. Though I may complain about my job, it is a good job that most would kill for (though its not what I want to do) and it pays pretty well. I have been making plans and am starting to stockpile equipment. I am hoping that within the next year or two, I will have saved enough and have firm enough plans and support that I am hoping to open a gym here in Albuquerque. I use the word “gym” loosely. You won’t walk into my gym and see rows of machines with steroid freaks in muscle shirts working out for the row of people sweating it out on treadmills and elipticals. I won’t give out all my planned secrets but you can expect to walk in and find people bouldering and jumping on olympic trampolines. People hitting olympic weights and kettlebells. Punching bags, sandbags, ladders tires and obstacle courses. Oh yeah, and hopefully a lot of people getting healthy and having fun with actual smiles on their faces. I know that owning a gym… especially a local gym with such “different” methods and ideals is no road to riches but I am looking forward to the opportunity to work my ass of doing something I love if I can make it happen.
Anyway… given an excuse to, the site will hopefully be back. In the meantime I wish you all well!
Don’t forget, November 15th the site will be gone.
