Since October of last year, I’ve been wondering what do with my writing-focused newsletter currently hosted on Substack. For one thing, I’m no longer content being pigeonholed into a single topic. I’m still a writer, but also so much more than that. I’m a podcaster, a musician, a voice-over artist, and my interests are just as diverse.
I’m a huge fan of suits and menswear. One thing I’ve missed about going into an office every day is being able to wear a different suit with a complementary tie, pocket square, and accoutrements. I also love scotch and bourbon, watches, and nice pens.
From stationery, to suits, to timepieces, to booze, and everything in-between, I’m a man of varied tastes. With so much I want to talk about, I need a place to do so. A room where I can store the things I love and invite others in to admire them as well.
My old blog, Curious Rat, had gone through several iterations. I’ve decided, however, that it was past time to retire it. It had helped me find an audience early on, but as a “brand” it wouldn’t serve my new needs. Yet, I still had this other property over on Substack. The Study. A perfect name for this new endeavor.
So, here we are. This is my room. Let me pour you a drink. Feel free to peruse my bookshelves for something to read. I’ll put on a little music, light the fireplace, and we can settle in for some engaging conversation.
Welcome to my new website. Welcome to…The Study.
