There are a few reasons that I have decided on this endeavor. Some I know and some I am sure I will discover in the future. I will try and talk about a few of them here.
I have recently had to resign from my job and I now have a shitload of time on my hands. Realizing that I can’t surf the web all day to look for a job I am realizing I am going to have to try some new things in my life. Growing up as a child I used to be very artistic and creative. Those days have been long gone for some time now. I have been thinking for years that I need to get back in touch with my creative side and writing is one way that I think I can do this. I am better than most, with my use of grammar and I have a large vocabulary as well as a vivid imagination. I hope to nurture some of these creative aspects of myself through this blog.
I have a thirst for knowledge. I always am eager to learn. I am open minded and I thought that starting a blog might be a great way to expand my knowledge and learn some new things from new people about the things that I enjoy and love to discuss. I also want to express my opinions on matters of importance to me. I do feel that I have something to share with the world and I am hoping also that the world has something to share with me.
I also want to establish a presence on the web. Understanding that the web is a big part of our future I felt it important to get started on this. Only 10 years ago did I have my first exposure to the internet. I have learned so much in that time. I have refined my thoughts and ideas and have discovered new things that I never knew existed (most of which I am sure to touch on writing this blog). I would like to give any readers of my blog a chance to voice there opinions and build on their comments to ignite a useful discussion.
Keeping in touch with friends and family is another aspect of this blog I may eventually find useful as well. While I no longer live in my hometown and have moved out of state, this could be a good way to communicate with those I care about and miss talking to in lieu of using the telephone (which I really do not care for all that much).
I guess that’s about it. This is my first blog post and it seems appropriate. Thanks for reading.
