During the month of August, I posted 8 blogs on insights2ignite.com as part of a Toastmaster assignment. I blogged about football, the weather, a small town in Iowa, my first job, and one of my blogs was even for the birds, Arizona Lovebirds to be precise.
Now, I’ve made the decision to continue blogging. Why? My thinking is that though I am getting up in years, I’ve still got something to say. You may be interested in reading what I write, and I’d like that. Join in if you wish. But there’s no need for you to chime in. Either way is perfectly OK.
What is a blog?
I’ve done some research and here is a good working definition:
A regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.
Below, in my own words is what I hope my blog to be:
My intention is to use my blog to deliver content on the web that provides information of interest to me and to my readers. Some blogs will be opinion pieces, representing my thoughts and views. Some blogs will be informational.
We’ll reminisce a bit – I like to tell stories. Some posts might even take on the form of a diary, although this is not my overall intention.
Right now my interests include photography and video and audio. I’m interested in the technology used to deliver content.
I expect my blog will take on a life of its own, as it evolves.
By design, this site is not specifically a political blog. However, I do expect to use my blog as a venue to express myself. I’m finding that social media such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. is fine if you want to post a rant, but it’s really poor for thoughtful opinion or dialogue.
To start with I’ll be posting at least one blog a week. I’ll cross post links on Facebook and maybe Twitter.
I’d love to have you join me.
