The first post. So full of promise. So full of space. So full of the potential. Literally a blank slate.
Do I try to be profound? The internet is full of failed philosophers, poets, and pundits.
Do I introduce myself? Well, that’s what the About page is for, right?
Look, there are people out there that will tell you the personal blog is dead. That in the age of Social Media your blog should fill a need or a niche. My only problem is that I don’t live in a niche and I’m not really sure that there is a need to fill other than my own desire to write, record, document, and share. I don’t plan to monetize. I’m not trying to make a living by blogging. So in essence what you have here is quite simply an old fashioned 1995 style personal blog.
I’m an eclectic person with a variety of interest, ideas, thoughts, opinions, faults, failings, successes, experiences, goals, achievements, and desires. Chances are you’re likely the same. You can’t be pigeon holed and no one facet of your life defines you so totally that you can center an entire blog around it. If you are then I applaud your ability to be so singularly focused. The world is far too vast and complex for me.
What I offer here is nothing more than the random thoughts of a man in the world. While not profound, hopefully unique. A person living life on the planet earth with a couple billion others. Playing with my existence and inviting you to peer in from time to time.
This is the first post. Welcome to my world.
