Zero to Hero – Who Am I?

Having just tied the knot (read all about it on Marriage in Maui), I thought it would be a blast to get back into the blogging game on a personal level. And whether it was by coincidence or good timing, I stumbled upon WordPress.com’s “Blogging 101 – Zero to Hero” post which aims to help beginning bloggers get their show on the road.

Kismet, right?

Well, today’s assignment is to tell you a little about myself and why I’m here.

A picture of Christopher Golden - me.

This is me!

Hi. I’m Chris! I like long walks on a beach at sunset. I’m also slightly addicted to social media. I’m in to sports, and while never played hockey (on ice at least), am very passionate about the Vancouver Canucks. I also dig the Whitecaps FC, BC Lions, Vancouver Canadians too. I’ve actually been in this blogging game for close to a decade now, though I’ve never really picked up the knack at publishing regularly, let alone having a focus.

That, I’m hoping to change.

I plan on discussing my thoughts on the local sports teams here, my addiction to social media, video games (yes, I’m a nerd), and a little bit on what goes on here on the Left Coast. Sure those topics will mean a broad spectrum of appeal, but that’s me and I’m not sure I’m really ready to settle down yet.

But if you were me, what would you do? What interests you the most? What would bring you back here more than the casual visit? I’d love to here your thoughts down the comments!

Zero to Hero – Where It Began » « Don’t Starve!


  1. Another social media addict! Nice to meet you! I’m so addicted that I even went to study it. I have a degree in “Digital Marketing and Communication”. I’m absolutely fascinated by all the possibilities and the effect it has on us. I look forward to reading more!

    • Thanks for stopping by and sharing in our mutual addiction! While I don’t have the degree you have (mine is in thug life – which just sounds more bad ass than “History and Political Science), it’s really the “social” in social media that has engaged me as it has.

  2. I came for the “Call me maybe” reference and am staying for the variety. Very cool blog.

    • I was somewhat proud of myself for coming up with the “Call Me Maybe” reference. Now I’m worried that I’ve set the bar high on my wittiness. Regardless, I do appreciate the visit and will aim to please!

  3. This makes me curious >>> “… little bit on what goes on here on the Left Coast”. Nice blog.

  4. I think you should write about which beaches are the best for walking at sunset. People underestimate the importance of this topic and it’s not so easy to find good beach evaluating info πŸ™‚

    • Don’t get me wrong, I love a walk along a beach at sunset like the next person, but not sure I have anywhere near the amount of knowledge necessary to write a blog on the topic.
