Where’s the Free Chicken???
I realize that I haven’t been doing as many in depth articles recently. That has been compensated for by the number of great student reviews and articles by MVT cadre. However, I am in the process of both running training classes and writing the sequel to ‘Patriot Dawn: The Resistance Rises.‘ Writing the sequel is something that is way overdue, and is partly due to a lot of time invested in both running training, the blog, and developing both classes and the training site. It’s been busy!
Now, as a website and training business owner, it is true that lots of blog posts generate clicks and interest. If there is no free chicken, people drift away. Sad really
However, there is only so much use you can derive from reading. You can read articles and develop a theoretical knowledge, or you can read them and add some depth to training you are already doing, if you have a baseline of competence. But you cannot assimilate competence through reading. It is background information that will be brought to life through training.
I have also noticed that even students that are actually at training are often unaware of a particular article or training development, simply because everyone is busy and don’t read everything on the blog. I get that. There are however, hundreds of useful articles on the blog! So I am going to start a systematic process of re-posting a lot of the useful posts that may be now buried in the blog.
The other side of that is that if you are reading MVT in an attempt to increase your tactical ability, I cannot stress more how you really need to come to a training class. However you need to persuade the wife, you need to make it happen.
There is also the MVT Forum where there are a lot of knowledgeable members, and you will likely get questions answered there, and you can even ask the cadre/moderators. More subject matter expert member articles there would also be useful. *hint* Lot’s of free chicken there!
