I will pop up here and there as a contributor or commenter on my favorite blogs and some day I hope to attempt a couple other forms of creative writing on my life list. Maybe even a more focussed blog some day.
I want to especially thank Smithers and Aaron for inspiring me to start my own blog and also recognize the many bloggers, listed below and to the right, who are elevating the media form as legitimate journalism; a source of news, entertainment, perspective and unfiltered opinion.
Blogging and eBay are to date, the best examples of how the internet has removed almost all friction from commerce and the flow of information. Blogs are the modern day pamphlets, not unlike the ones Benjamin Franklin distributed under his various noms de plum in the formative years of our nation.
I feel like the lead character in my favorite film, Forest Gump: for three years he runs coast to coast several times and then out of nowhere, decides to go home. My problem is like his. I can't tinker with anything. I'm either all in or all out. It's also probably why I can't watch the Vikings since 1998 any more.
After a year and a half, almost a thousand posts, 18,000 visitors (most of which looking for pictures of the tooth fairy), and $3.23 in Adsense revenue it's time for something different.
Thank you for challenging my beliefs and opening my mind with your comments and feedback.
Thank you for reading my blog.
