I can hardly believe it, but today marks four years since I started Can You Dig It. Before I went to bed last night I thought out a pretty lengthy post about the occasion that I planned on typing out in the morning, but having a two year old up all night doing his damnedest to reenact the vomiting scene from The Exorcist kind of got things off schedule. So since the day is already well on its way to being over, I’ve decided to break up my thoughts into several post over the next week, rather than dump them all out into one post now. That will probably make them a lot more digestible anyway.
I’ve actually been doing a lot of thinking about Can You Dig It lately. For those that don’t know, for the most part Can You Dig It is a one man show. Pretty much every day I get up and spend some time scouring the web and various social media platforms for any trails related content that I think would be fitting to post. Sometimes if I’m not too busy with life’s other stuff, I’ll craft up some content of my own. Lately the time I’ve had to devote to doing that has become less and less. Between family, work, digging and occasionally riding, I find myself wishing that there were both more hours in the day and more days in the week. I definitely think that’s something that comes along with getting older and having more responsibilities and more people depending on you.
That said, as happy as I am looking back on the past four years and seeing where I’ve managed to take Can You Dig It, I’m not completely satisfied with it. While the site has achieved the original goal of becoming the place where trail riders from all over the world can come to find content that they’re into, I feel it could be so much more. So far the voice of Can you Dig It has primarily been my own, but that’s something that I would like to change moving forward. That’s where you come in! I’d love to find some trails loving people who would be down to contribute to the site. I’m looking for people who can hold it down on the writing side with opinion pieces, reviews, interviews and how-to’s, and on the media side with photo and video content. So if you love trails and are a strong writer, and or have some skills behind the lens, let’s talk! I love this little place dedicated trails that I’ve carved on out the web, but with your help I know it can be a whole lot better! Shoot me an email to [email protected] if you’re interested!
