Hmmm…. What should my first post on this blog be about? Myself? No, that’s already in the About Me section.
My interests? Which one?
Food? Drink? Ooh, Yeah!
Life? Love? Um… Not publicly, can’t do that last one, 🙂 hey? Films? Books? Uh-huh… Entrepreneurship? SocioBiology? Technology? Philosophy? The Green Bay Packers? The things I like make a long list…
OK, so my first post will be about why I blog. I am not new to blogging, but this is the first time I have a Personal Blog, on which I feel like I have the freedom to write just about anything. So those (above) are some of the topics I am going to write about. Notice how I cleverly said “some”, so I can expand that list? Smart, hey?
Anyway, enough frivolity. I have previously blogged about my technology L3, moving back to India and a few other topics. The first was for business reasons and the second was an emotional reaction to my return to my birthplace that had become a frustrating enigma to me.
As I mature and grow older, I feel that I do have valuable thoughts to share. These aren’t just opinions unsupported by facts (usually) or emotional rantings. I pride myself on thoughtful, reasoned dialog. I research, discuss, and then write.
Another reason to blog is simply to refine my thinking about the various things that I need to or want to think about. And what better way to organize your thoughts and hone them, than to write?
- Reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man.
- Sir Francis Bacon
English author, courtier, & philosopher (1561 – 1626)
Finally, I want to write a book, and what better practice than to write often? I used to write well, but like every other skill, it atrophies if unused.
So here’s wishing me luck and to you dear reader, luck as well, in that you may find in my blog, ideas of value or just entertainment.
