I’ve never been great at keeping up with things. Things that seem like a great, fun idea, only to become a chore as the reality of life sets in. Worthwhile and rewarding things that take just a little too much effort after a full day of earning a paycheck. Things like starting and maintaining a blog. I’ve tested the waters a few times, tried my hand at publishing content, but it’s never lasted long. And yet, here I am again. Will things be different this time?
To be honest, it doesn’t really matter. That’s the attitude I’m trying to keep anyway. Perhaps if I let myself relax and create at my leisure, it won’t seem overwhelming or burdensome. I do want to spend time writing and sharing thoughts (or else I wouldn’t be writing here now), but if I preserve a laissez-faire mindset, maybe it can continue to be a hobby, a way to vent and let off steam, a way to spread my opinion in posts that people will hopefully enjoy reading.
As far as the content of this blog goes, all I can offer is a vague aray of subjects I engage in. So you might expect music, video games, movies and TV, linguistics (I did major in Russian in college), and the adventures and milestones I share with my wife, Madison (and you can find her at cestlamoot.com!). We haven’t lived in our rural, middle-of-nowhere North Carolina town very long, so perhaps we’ll post our discoveries as we explore this quaint little place. I am, of course, very open to suggestions! It is most certainly not the readers’ job or obligation to tell the author what to produce, but let’s just say it’s an open invitation to provide feedback about the kinds of things you enjoy and might like to see more of.
So I won’t drone on about what may or may not find its way onto this blog, since I can’t really promise anything. It’s likely that I’ll settle into a niche, and you may see recurring themes, segments, or features. And hopefully they’ll make for a nice read.
Feel free to reach out to me anytime; I’ve linked my various social media sites, and I’m always excited to hear from readers and make new friends.
Until next time,
