Once upon a time I was a freelance webdesigner. During the early years of that period in my life, blogs were relatively unknown and I believed they wouldn’t last. What an impersonal waste of time, I thought. What sane person would continue to write a blog for years? What kind of person would spend their time reading them? On several occasions I dissuaded clients from setting up a blog. I grew tired of hearing about “blogs” and the very word became a curse to me. For the many things I may have been right on considering the future of the web, I did not foresee how popular and meaningful blogging would become. Stubbornly, I refused to jump on the bandwagon.
A decade has passed and I’ve missed the heyday of blogging, but the time has come when my interest has piqued. I recognize it is time, as a writer, to do what I can to get my name out there. I realize the more I write, whatever it is I write, the more in tune I become with the written word. I have nothing original to say, but really, who does? Maybe some will identify with my voice. And if not, maybe I’ll just learn how to be a better, more patient writer.
Let me know how I’m doing. What you want to hear. What you want me to shut up about. I plan on posting whenever I feel led to do so–no more, no less–on average maybe once a week. If you feel led, I’d like to hear from you as well. Sincerely.
