Back with a Bang: Rorz’s Return to Social Media and a New Chapter at Rorz Cards

RorzCards is back! Plus, personal updates ⬇️⬇️⬇️ I took a fairly long hiatus from social media after the birth of my son this past August. Having 3 kids under 4 requires even more juggling given that the kids now outnumber th3 adults. My wife is amazing already but by taking a break from social media, I was able to direct more energy to the kids (and to work, which felt necessary given the state of corporate layoffs and such. Our son is now 5 months old and I’m starting 4 months of baby bonding leave. And while my priority will be the baby, I do anticipate having time for social media and other burgeoning interests. Also, after growing my hair out for a year, I finally cut it. See the before and after clip in the video! And after gaining more weight than I’d ever previously had, I made a concerted effort to lose weight. I’m 20 lbs down after 2 months. Finally, I’m starting the Rorz Cards blog and will be detailing some BTS stuff with growing that. If you’ve got a blog too, DM me and we can figure out how to link to each other! #cardtok #sportscards

Full Transcript

It’s been a minute. This is Rorz from Rorz Cards and after a six month hiatus from social media, I’m back. So these last six months have been a whirlwind. I had my third kid in August and so for the last six months I’ve been focusing on parenthood. I’d grown my hair out for a full year and just last week I cut it. So let me show you a quick clip of how that went. I also hit my, the heaviest I’ve ever weighed at 212 and so over the last month and a half, two months, I’ve dropped 20 pounds and I’m super thrilled about that. My wife says I’m looking a little bit slimmer on the face, which is nice to hear. And I’ve got all these ideas whirling around my head for what I can focus on over the next few months. I’ll be on paternity leave for four months and while my number one focus is going to be my baby who’s now five months, I will also have some time to invest in some new projects. So I’m starting the Rorz Cards blog. I’m thinking about domain name investing. I’m looking at building out some, what we call micro SaaS web apps that can hopefully generate some revenue on the side. I want to start building again, which is something I really miss. And so I’m really excited to be here. One thing that I do want to say is that in reflecting on the year or so that I spent on social media, there have been times where I felt a little bit aimless. I was posting videos and I had a great time doing it, but I didn’t really have a purpose. And so I’ve been thinking about how I can backstop that with something that makes it more meaningful for me. And so what I’m doing is I’m starting the blog. There’s barely anything there right now, but I plan on trying to build it out, writing articles and complimenting those articles with videos and hopefully creating some interaction with you and some of the blogs and social media presences that you yourselves own. So if you do have a blog, please reach out. Get some links going back and forth and help me kickstart this blog.
