So this is my first foray into the world of blogging and I’m excited that after years of considering it, I’ve finally taken the plunge. What remains to be seen however, is if I will have the discipline to somewhat regularly maintain it. Interestingly enough, I’m usually one of the first people to jump into a new technology, so the fact that I just alluded to blogging as a new technology shows how infinitely behind on this I am.
Okay, fine! The real reason I’ve waited so long is that by entering the blogosphere after everyone and their dog has a blog, I’m afraid I will be admitting that I’m behind the curve. You see, I love to read up on all sorts of technology (especially Apple), and be the first person in my circles to know any rumors or unsubstantiated facts. I love that I was one of the first of my friends on Facebook and Twitter and I love being the “go to guy” for anything technological. So up until now, I’ve always had the excuse that I didn’t blog because I didn’t want to. Or since I never actually made an excuse, I subconsciously hoped people would think I was too cool to blog, or I would retain some mystery by not exposing what a nerd I actually am! Unfortunately my inner weirdo cannot be squelched!
So here I am finishing the final paragraph of my first post, and I’ve already started to think of some funny and interesting stuff to write about in the future. I’m going to need some sort of system to remember things that are interesting enough to blog about. The good news is that there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of blog-worthy material in my life, so I might as well publicize it for the world to enjoy.
