As a blogger writing about what I refer to as "seriously seaworthy" products, people, places and things, I am constantly reviewing pretty much everything that I can find in reference to our favored subject- nautical and coastal products, design and of course, lifestyle. And why do I do this you may ask? It's my business and we are experts in this field. As the President and CEO of Skipjack Nautical Wares & Marine Gallery, I look at thousands of items each year as potential products for our store and we only choose the finest in products and artisans work created for the nautical enthusiast and the coastal homeowner. I do this seven days a week. We definitely live the life and walk the talk.
By Coastal Creations & Design standards, "seriously seaworthy" is defined as products and things of quality, whether authentic or replica, that will withstand the test of time. It also refers to people who really live the nautical/coastal lifestyle and places that are real coastal destinations.
Now into a new year, we've made a few course corrections and are "trimming our sails" to remove the fluff and improve our position. We will tailor our articles to only write about "seriously seaworthy" products and avoid whenever possible, the cheap knockoffs and crafty lookalikes. We will also limit our articles to those people who truly live the nautical/coastal lifestyle and destinations that qualify to our subject. In other words, we are not interested in writing blogs about the "how to" make your own nautical crafts or products heavily produced and manufactured in places like India and China that have flooded our nation with cheap nautical junk. We do not plan to copy pictures and write about a decorating magazines take on nautical/coastal living as if it was our own...there's plenty of other bloggers to follow who are good at doing this and we are not selling advertising to pay to write this either.
Does this come across as being a bit cold or harsh? Well, OK. Look at us as the "piratical" source of the nautical/coastal blog writers. We dare to be different and we will tell it like it is. I do not plan to write a blog a day or maybe not even a blog a week. We will post articles when we have something really worth writing about and not just to put something out there because it's expected and I have advertising to sell and advertisers to keep happy! We're not going to waste your time nor am I going to waste mine either. So, if you are looking for a more "serious" approach to the subject, then please follow this blog. If not, then there's plenty of the Coastal Living copy cats to follow. And, we cherish your real comments too, so share your views with us.
