The Shape of (this) Site to Come.

It’s no secret that as of late, the posts of The Momentum have decreased in number. Going from one / two a day to one a week, or so, is a big shift for me and the site in general. I am taking a step back from the post to encourage more quality versus quantity. These posts will focus more on the everyday life I lead and how the products I use, places I visit, things I eat and drink come into play. Also, I have recruited some friends to contribute in the arenas of restaurant reviews, music you should be listening to, and others. Being the Colorado native I am, an emphasis on the outdoors and the juxtaposition of it with the professional life.

Amid all the noise and posts of the other sites on the Internet, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to do something new. For the most part, I don’t have a strong opinion one way or the other about a high-end designer’s / company’s SS/11 line, unless I have some experience with them in the past. I realized too that I’m a man of simple pleasures. I know what I like and have found myself escaping the realm of “want” and living in the space of “need.” A major purge of what I own has started, parring my wardrobe down to the essentials. I will not stop buying  nor reviewing those items I think will work well in my everyday.

In the meantime, while I work on the new direction, feel free to follow my random posting of pictures, videos, text, and audio on my Tumblr: The Best Most Awesome.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank the lot of you that have stuck with me over the years. This is just another transition, and we’ll be back in full form with a new outlook ASAP. Besides, it’s camping season almost. What better way to make all your city kids jealous than with post-weekend posts about Saturday’s camping trip? Fires and footlongs. Mountain dogs day hikes. Whiskey and beer. Whiskey.

Best,

WGP

  1. I did the same thing with Crabapple. Went a long time with weeks where I posted nothing. This year I decided to streamline it, and just have fun with it. It’s still a work in progress, and will probably change again. But that’s ok – it’s a website. They’re supposed to change. Everything you’ve done to this point has been awesome, and I’m sure that will continue going forward. Best of luck. I look forward to seeing the new and improved Momentum.

    • Thanks, Sam. You personally have been critical in the growth of this site. Your continued contributions never go unnoticed. I just needed to step back from all the hustle and bustle. My last trip to NYC for whatever reason, sealed the deal in terms of knowing what I want in life. A nice eye-opener for sure.

      Stay tuned for the new style.

      Will

  2. Just want to echo what Sam has already said. Very much looking forward to witnessing the evolution of the Momentum and of Will. Excited to see what comes next, but am already assured that it will be nothing but supremely awesome. Congratulations.

    All bests,
