Behind the scenes….

Its my 100th post today…. Yay…

I thought it would be fitting to pull the curtain back a bit and see what thehonestone is really about.
But before we go there lets go to the very beginning…

Click here to visit my very first post way back when I was a newbie in the blogging world.

Ha ha ha…… really weird going back there. So now that you had a good look into my humble beginnings, back to where we are today.

I am a 34 year old guy, single and never been married (ever). That does mean I have never tried….. Lots of heart break stories to tell.

I try to live a healthy life, therefore I make my own ginger beer (from the GB Plant), I ferment my own kombucha (a fermented tea of sorts) and even make kefir (a fermented milk). I also have a little earthworm farm, which lives in an old bath.

I also trade currencies on the forex market, so I guess combine the 2 things and you get a “green capitalist”, although with marginal success in the markets I am not a very good one.

And apparently there is such a thing as a green capitalist.

My blog (thehonestone) I started more because I simply wanted to jot down the ideas (and some frustrations) I have from day to day. At first it was simply an outlet, but it has grown a bit into an “open to discuss” environment, which I thank you all for.
I used thehonestone as my blog name, because I think honesty is severely lacking in the world today, everybody quotes there results and figures and it leaves one left out in the dark and thinking that life is too hard. Or even worse, maybe only the “gifted” make it.

When I say honesty is lacking I include Christianity as a whole here which I suppose is my main reason for commenting on life. I think real honesty is waning in the larger world of Christianity and I hope that will be corrected, every one has their part so hopefully my little contribution will help…….
That said I am never in anyone’s face about beliefs pertaining to God, simply because I think its unnecessary, we are all grown ups here and if you seek truth you will find it (if you seek it). That is not a punt for christianity it simply means I respect your beliefs, so equally I ask people to respect mine. I don’t force mine on people and neither do I expect it from people. Click here to read a series I wrote on a friends blog that more encapsulates what I believe.

i live my life on the basis of the saying, “It is better to ask for forgiveness rather than permission”. My maxim in life.

Anyway enough serious stuff.

What have I learned over the past year blogging?

Nothing, the point is for you to learn from my infinite wisdom (insert evil laugh here)

ha ha ha, just kidding.

I have enjoyed connecting with people, other bloggers and simply like the sharing opinions and life’s little lessons.

There is always lots more to a person than what we see therefore I like blogging, I think my real beliefs are captured here…untainted from the wrongful use of words (by sometimes the offense of people)
People are less likely to react instantly when its written down than spoken. People often tell me that I write so differently to how I am in every day life. I guess my only answer to that is that, they are stuck judging the container and are not bothered about the content.

You will find a common vain in the blog. Time, benefit of the doubt, and depth of character. I am not saying I embody that, simply that I think we tend to judge each other too quickly, by a measure of standards that we ourselves don’t normally live and we simply don’t make the time to really get down to what it is all about.

I hear too many people say I don’t have time, really????? Everybody has enough time, its how you use it…….

Anyway I am getting away from myself here…..

So here I am a 100 posts later, I hope everyone sticks around for the next 100.

There are a few changes in the pipelines, nothing major, just testing a few thing out….

Thank you to all who read my blog and comment I really appreciate it. if there is anything you would like to know, drop a comment I always reply if it needs one.
