• About me

    My name is Rob Skidmore and my wife is Corryn.

    In December I graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.A. in English and joined the ranks of the unemployed.

    I enjoy writing, you can find some of my stories and poems on this blog.

    I also ran track for BYU. I was in great shape until my appendectomy over the summer. Now I am just a skinny white guy with great form and decent muscle tone who gets winded jogging from my front door to the mailbox.

    I am going to be a first time daddy in May. It's a boy. We have a name. We aren't telling.

    I like reading; mostly short stories, they fit my attention span.

    If you like my perspective on stuff feel free to follow this blog, join me on Twitter, or add me on Facebook.

    I work for Infogenix as a SEO Content Writer. If you are interested add me on LinkedIn. I have mad writing skills.

I took up a job a few weeks ago doing some editing work for a marriage and family counselor in Texas. It has really been wonderful. I have realized how important a secure marriage and how difficult it is to achieve. Since I have been dating Corryn I realize that love is a lot of work and sacrifice. Relationships are fragile and we need to continually monitor them so that we can keep them stable.
The single most important thing I will do in my life to get married. After that the most important thing that I will do is keep that marriage successful.
A while ago when this blog was part of the internet magazine I was trying to start I wrote an article about a Readers Digest bit that I read. Sadly I deleted the post when I decided not to do the magazine anymore.
Something that I realized while reading the Readers Digest story was that we are paralyzed by fear in our relationships. We are so afraid to fail that we forget how to succeed. I believe that if we focus on having success and not preventing failure we would have much happier and loving relationships.
Lets be real, who wants a marriage that is just holding on; tied together with string and glue and tape. I for one do not.
