Jason T. from Canada Asks:
Ariel, I’ve been following the blog for a couple of months now. I was wondering how you got into writing about watches. Did you own a couple of timepieces before you started writing about them? Also, what’s in your personal collection of wristwatches? Would love to know!
Ariel here. That is a good question Jason. I will respond that I really just decided to start blogging about watches back in 2007. The blog started as aBlogtoRead.com and later became aBlogtoWatch.com in 2012. It was my first website and my first experience blogging. I probably owned about 50 watches or so at that point as I got into watches in about 2001. I tend to not discuss my personal collection too much as we try to cover everything. I have a large range of timepieces, and there is little in terms of a theme aside from them being mostly newer sport watches. I really do this because I love watches in general as opposed to a narrow type of watch.
There is a lot more information about myself and the genesis of aaBlogtoWatch here on a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) I was asked to do back in late 2012. I was honored to do it and I once again thank the great members of /r/Watches, and recommend people check it out.
