Golf Ledger Relaunched

Golf Ledger started as a way for me to learn to program using the Python programming language and Django framework. It took a handful of months for me to get a grasp on the coding and then another 8-9 months to actually develop the site. The idea was for it to be a better community discussion forum (I don’t care for the typical forum layouts).

It failed. Golf Ledger was online for close to two years (I think… I’ve lost track) and had ~300 member signups. Unfortunately only a few people were active. Through this I learned that it’s difficult to grow an online community. Like… really difficult. When you have a full-time job, a wife and two kids, there’s only so many hours left in the day to grow an online community.

The idea to turn Golf Ledger into a blog has been bouncing around in my head for a while. I hadn’t taken the time to get serious about it until now.

Why a Blog?

I have been hesitant. I was putting it off out of fear more than anything. As a blog, I’m responsible for the content. I’d ask myself: “Who’s going to care what you have to say about golf?” Hopefully someone out in internet world will enjoy it. If not, that’s okay too.

I’m a self-proclaimed golf addict. I’m always tinkering with my swing and doing anything I can to get better. As a scratch golfer (okay, okay… a 1.4 handicap as I write this) I’m sure I have knowledge that someone will find useful in their own journey to improve.

As a Reader, What Can I Expect From Golf Ledger?

I won’t be writing about breaking news from the tour, equipment manufacturers, etc. There’s plenty of sites doing that and I would get lost in the mix.

I’ll be writing about my own personal experiences to get better at this game. May be a product review, training aid I’m using, feels/thoughts, swing theories, and general things I’m currently working on. I love thinking and talking golf, so that’s what I’m going to do.

I hope you enjoy.
