This is my latest attempt at blogging, and I hope it will be more successful than the last. I tried keeping a blog that was strictly dedicated to book reviews, but that got really tedious after awhile. It began to feel more like work than fun, so I posted less and less frequently. This new blog is inspired by my good friend Wes Moore, who decided to give blogging a try and has done so quite successfully in my opinion.
Like most new bloggers, I doubt if anyone will ever read this, but I think I will enjoy having an outlet for my compulsion to rant. I’ve also been inspired by friends like Karice Ledford, who have used blogs as an efficient way to share personal news with friends near and far.
I’m not young – I’m over 50 now (unbelievable!). Which means that I’m categorized as a “digital immigrant” – I didn’t grow up with computers and the internet. However, I feel I’ve done a pretty good job of acclimatizing myself to the digital atmosphere. I was fairly reluctant to enter the realm of social networking, but last month I joined facebook, and now I’m creating a blog to go along with it.
What can you expect to see here? An occasional book or movie review, frequent rants concerning TV shows or current events – especially pop culture topics, personal stories, musings on life and love (or the lack thereof), and – of course – agony and angst as I continue with a hectic life that includes a full-time job, a part-time job, the pursuit of a PhD, church activities, friends and family, and the usual time-wasters.
And with this, I finish my first step into the blogosphere!
