So I finally took the plunge and started a blog. I love to write pen my thoughts from time to time.
It’s hard to say exactly what the categories will end up being, but I suspect the main topics will be about Politics, Religion, Music, Sports, Writing, Techie Topics like Perl and Software Development as well as Life Experiences / other Observations.
I’ve always considered myself sort of a Jack of all Trades, master of none. That’s been one of my problems, frankly. I can never seem to focus on one thing long enough to get truly good at it and I envy people who can. As soon as I say “okay, I’m going to make Music my main focus”, the next thing I know College Football season rolls around and I’m completely distracted from keeping with the plan of attack and spending 2-3 hours a day trying to get solid as a musician. Someone once told me that you have to put about 2,000 hours into something to get really good at it. That sounds about right. I’ve probably got 1,000 hours into about 6 different things, hence, Jack of all trades, master of none.
Oh well. I’m enjoying life a great deal and reckoned a blog my help me capture some thoughts and observations. If nothing else, maybe it’ll be good therapy for me to have this venting outlet, or maybe my kids can re-read some of these thoughts long after I’m gone and get a true sense of who Dad really was, whacky guy that he is sometimes.
