My paintball niche...

Someone asked me recently what I blog about on my paintball blog. I pushed back the urge to go for the obvious sarcastic answer and went with, "I blog about all the stuff that's not covered in the paintball tournament/scenario competition blogs."

"What else is there?" was his serious retort.

Heavy sigh...

While the paintball media (TV, Blogs, Forums, Podcasts, Web Pages, etc.) is all about the next competition field layout, tournament ready marker or who just jumped from what team to another, ninety six percent of the "real world" of paintball is being played out all across the world on small fields in small towns.

Granted, it would be nice to be able to skip the pond and report back on the Millennium series or hob knob in the VIP tents at major events with the paintball glamoratti but someone needs to stay home, mind the store and see to it that the future of paintball is looked after.

It's a heavy burden and a thankless responsibility but someone has to do it. (sarcasm on) I guess that's why the industry skews all the profit margin my way - so I can make all the big bucks. (sarcasm off)

90% of any part of the "real world" is the blood, sweat, and tears of the nameless man who does most or all of the heavy lifting.

If you can manage to do something that gives you a little self-satisfaction with a dash of fun on the, who needs money anyway? :)

LOL...yeah, but the cash is nice too!

Ok, ok. It is a material world and we are all a material girl...or boy. My comment sounded kind of noble and poetic, though, right? hahaha

very noble, indeed. But you're right, finding something you like to do certainly makes going to work easier.
