So, I’ve been contemplating starting one of these things for some time now, but I’ve always come up with some silly reason for putting it off. My favorite excuse was that it really just too late to start blogging and that my posts cannot possibly contain any original, insightful, or interesting thoughts. I’ve learned that excuses are just excuses and that it’s really a lack of confidence, which I’ve always had about my writing in particular. Besides, if LiLo has a blog then I sure as hell can.
A couple months ago I decided to get with the program and join the social. So now I have the following web presences:
I’ve been doing the social bookmarking thing, posting articles I find interesting to my Facebook account, but the thing about Facebook is that most of my friends, don’t really care about the things I care about. I love Facebook for reconnecting me with all my old friends from Elementary, Jr. High, and High School– but I don’t want to bother these folks with my latest and greatest gadget, or new web design technologies. One thing I love about the new Facebook design is that they’ve split up the Posted Items into a separate tab. There are some people that sit on Facebook all day long and just bookmark other pages. In the old design, I ended up using the “Show less from this person” so I wasn’t bombarded every time I logged in. My point is that I’m really doing thing for you, if you care what I have to say, grab my RSS feed or subscribe the blog.
In a nutshell this site will be my attempt at bringing all this Web 2.0 garbage together in one tidy package. I’ll most likely be writing about web design/graphics, technology, gadgets, and family life. I’ll try to be entertaining, but no promises. My posts will probably be short, I’m not a man of many words. I plan on improving the look of the site as soon as I find a theme that I like.
That’s all for now.
