So what will this blog be about? What ser­vice will it con­tribute to human­i­ty? What good will it bring forth? Why will mil­lions of read­ers flock to it dai­ly?

I don’t have a clue.

I have a per­son­al fam­i­ly site, so I don’t expect to be writ­ing about my fam­i­ly much. I think I’m wit­ty, but not in that laugh-out-loud, got­ta-read-it-to-the-guy-next-to-me kind of way (alas!). My non-fam­i­ly-relat­ed life is not all that excit­ing or orig­i­nal, my work involves being cre­ative while using com­put­ers, and I like to think I am cre­ative, but real­ly, the Inter­net is full of cre­ative com­put­er nerds.

And I don’t eat inter­est­ing stuff for lunch.

So, what do I have? I have my opin­ions. When I arrived in col­lege, lo those many years ago, I dis­cov­ered that it was okay to be opin­ion­at­ed, to be wrong, to sit in the front row. My life was fine before that, but a lot of good has come of being bold, forth­right, hon­est, and vocal. I know not every­one shares my opin­ions (but that makes for pop­u­lar blogs, right?) but that’s all I’ve got.

If you don’t like it, you don’t have to read it. That’s the best thing about the Inter­net.
