My name is Rob Rayburn. I am a freelance writer and a personal fitness trainer. I am also a full-time college student - better late than never - for sure.
I have always loved to write. I suppose that I have never been shy about expressing my opinions, particuarly when I feel that I know what I am talking about.
There are a lot of things that interest me.
Sports, music, relationships, social issues, politics, current events, and fatherhood are just a few of the topics that particularly interest me. I love a good, healthy debate regardless of the topic, assuming I have some knowledge in that area.
My personal area of expertise is personal fitness training. I have worked as an independent personal trainer off an on for the last decade or so. It truly is a passion for me. Need some advice? Feel free to ask. I don't pretend to know everything there is to know about any particular topic; although, I am well-informed on most of the issues that I will discuss. If I am not familiar with the topic, I try not to write about it. If I don't have the answer, I will find it from a credible source.
I am a United States Navy veteran and very proud of our boys and girls putting themselves in harm's way on a daily basis for the benefit of us all. You will never find anyone more patriotic than myself.
That said, I am completely disgusted with our government. I don't care about democrat or republican. I personally feel that there is all too often a middle ground that our legislators cannot find due to their obvious disdain for the other side.
Come on people, 200-plus years of partisan politics have resulted in the collective mess we are all in now. You Go Bob Barr!!
I am quite certain that my opinions will occasionally offend some; however, that is truly not my intent. I don't have a problem with the fact that you may very well know more than I do about any particular issue; in fact, I appreciate your insight. If your argument is persuasive enough and based in verifiable fact, I may well be compelled to change my position.
I look forward to checking out your posts and your critiques and opinions (good or bad) on my posts.
I am brand new to the Tblog community, and honestly would appreciate any tips or suggestions any of you may have.
Please feel free to passionately disagree with me. I completely respect anyone who is firm in his or her convictions. If you take the time to check out my posts, you will undoubtedly find that I am very passionate on a wide range of issues; although, I am not arrogant enough to believe that my ways are always the best ways.
Please be encouraged to hit me up, message me, critique my posts, and help me along here, if you would be so kind. Again, I am brand new to this community and would genuinely appreciate the guidance. I look forward to hearing from any and all of you. Have a great day!
