Don’t read any further. If you’re expecting regular blogging and definite topics, this place is not for you. Move along, please, nothing to see here.
I’m not a blogger. I can’t remember the number of times I have started a blog for various reasons, only to have them dwindle away into the vast nothingness of cyberspace, lonely and forgotten. I’m sure that with the exception of those places that delete inactive blogs after so long an absence, those blogs are still out there. I couldn’t tell you what they are, but they’re there.
So if this is the case, why am I trying again now? I’ll tell you.
Because I’m not blogging. See, blogging has a connotation of regular updates. Sometimes, it’s weekly, or monthly, or for those brave few, even daily. Most have a subject that they revolve around- health and family, or publishing and writing, or politics. In fact, even the “experts” advise you to stick to one topic (and stay away from controversy!!) if you want to be successful.
Well, anyone who knows me understands that I’m a rebel. At some point, I’m probably going to break every single one of those rules, and then some. But, I’m not doing this just for the sake of blogging. I suck at it – I really do. So why?
Because I have something to say – or I think I do, at any rate. You decide if it’s something you want to read. But in the past few years, I’ve learned it isn’t about what others read – it’s about what I have to say. So that’s what this place is for. I’m shooting for an average of about a post a week, but there’s no hard and fast schedule. And the topics themselves – well, they’re a bit scattered. I am passionate about many things, and I’m always turning something over in my head. One week it could be as mundane as a book review, the next it will be a heavy-handed discussion on some controversial issue.
So what do I post here? Well, some of it will be business, of course, things like project updates, book reviews, business spotlights, etc. But more than that, it will be a place for me to spout off the occasional bursts of inspiration that come to mind, a place where my words spill over into a glorious puddle of concepts and ideas and half-formed thoughts. Sometimes, they may coagulate into something solid and concrete. Once in a while, they may interest you, the reader. And if you find yourself coming back here time and again, and that maybe it’s a little more than once in a while – well take a gander over to the “subscribe” section to the right here and add in your email address! You’ll get my blog posts, and you’ll also get updates when I add new items to my store. (I promise, I won’t spam you, I’ll keep my updates minimal and semi-regular. You won’t be flooded with new item updates.)
