Why another blog?
I realize that I am probably the 100 millionth blog to be created here in cyberspace. I have resisted getting a blog for several years because I didn't want to add to the cacophony of noise already being broadcasted around the internet; after all, what could I add that would be of interest or relevance to anyone but myself? To be honest with you and with myself, the answer is: nothing. So why the blog? First and foremost, this blog is primarily for my own edification. I need to sharpen my writing skills, and so I present them for public consumption and criticism. If you can give me any pointers, advice or criticisms on any of my posts, I would welcome and appreciate them. Second, I think that having a blog is a wonderful way to encourage other people by posting thoughts or links to articles that I personally find encouraging and beneficial to my spiritual or physical life. I'm not a scholar and I can't offer anything on here but my perspectives on the ironies, sorrows, eccentricities and joys that I find in life, found through the things that I enjoy doing most.
