Don’t you just love the title of this article? Assigned to the default post in my WordPress software, I simply couldn’t delete it: the power of that title tugged at me. How deliciously apropos.
After much debate, I’m hanging my ass out here in the blogosphere. In this world the signal-to-noise ratio is high, given the 70 million other blogs currently on the web.
It’s not likely that this blog will find a large or identifiable audience, save for obligatory friends and family members. It won’t serve a specific topic. It won’t lend credibility to my business. And it certainly won’t make money.
Instead, my blog will be a self-serving arena (as are, let’s face it, nearly all forms of writing). It’s a blue-sky response to my desire for a creative outlet to express my personal musings. I feel the need to pen more than business-intoned, client-required content: this may feed my wallet, but I also want to water my soul.
Why a blog? Primarily because nothing may ever be written without the self-imposed deadlines necessary to maintain a blog. Most important, I’m ready to face the fear all writers must overcome: to get it all out there.
So, hello world!
