Well, after several years of saying “we should create a blog”, we decided that either it’s time to actually start it up, or just give up on the idea entirely. You’re seeing that we decided on the former path.
We don’t know what we’re doing. Neither of us have ever had a public blog of any sort. The goal is to also have a YouTube channel — that’ll be completely new to us, too.
But that’s sort of the point of granworks. We go through life jumping headfirst into something and hope that we’ll figure how it works as we go. Why would this blog be any different?
Who Are “We”?
We are Kurt and April Granroth. Both software engineers and both working for the same company (even on the same team). Two kids. Been married for almost 20 years. Trying to figure things out as we go.
What’s This Blog About?
It’s going to be an eclectic mix of what interests us. This will include DIY, Technology, Early Retirement, Investing, Sustainability, Theaters, and anything else that pops up. Expect posts on woodworking to be followed by figuring out an Arduino and capped by thoughts on compound growth.
A decent amount of the posts will likely be construction related, from DIY projects we’ve completed in the past. Slightly older and newer posts will be focused on building a home theater.
Going forward? We’ll see.
If we had a motto, it would be “if we can do it; so can you.” More than anything else, we want to show that pretty much anybody can do some pretty cool things. You don’t need to be a pro to get pro-like results. Hopefully this blog will show how possible it is to do DIY; to configure a kick-ass media system; to retire early… and more.
