What’s in a blog? (And a progress update)

January 5, 2009

So, my first morning routine is complete and if you are pessemistic than  it was pretty much an utter failure.  I prefer to be an optimist so I’m going to look at it as a great first try/learning experience.  I did actually get up (obviously, cause here I am) though it was an hour later than planned… I also did everything on my list of things to do including this here blog, but I spent less than the optimal amount of time on the workout… yeah, that’s gonna take some… work.

But I did attempt it and I feel that having at least done that, I will do better each day from here on out.  How are you doing on your resolutions?

Also, I’ve been thinking about what this blog will be like and what I’ll include in it.  I read quite a few different blogs and some of them are topical and some of them are just personal stuff.  I think this will be more like the latter.  Just a place for me to put up my thoughts/reflections and Jack Handy expressions for the day.

“If God dwells inside us like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that’s what He’s getting.”

But more to the point, how deep do you go on a blog?  How much of your life do you share with the world and how much do you keep private?  I have a couple friends who are ridiculously (and I think that is the appropriate descriptive word here) honest in their blogs about anything and everything that happens.  I have still other blogs that I thoroughly enjoy and it is always surfacy, fun stuff.

I’m thinking my own blog will be somewhere in the middle and if I’m in a deep mood, that’s what you’ll get, but if I’m not, I’m not going to spend time trying to create something that isn’t there.  I guess that leaves us with a stream of consciousness (slightly modified) block of text from my head on a regular basis.  This may appeal to you and it may not, but then you don’t have to be here.

I, however, do still have to wite it.  It’s one of my “resolutions”. 😉

Still playing…

November 3, 2008

Well, I’m still playing around with the formatting and domain settings of this thing.  I can’t decide whether to go with some sort of free hosting option (extremely lame due to server downtime, doesn’t work well with wordpress or banner ads) simply forward the domain to the wordpress blog (this doesn’t allow for much customization of the blog and puts the rss feed with wordpress.com rather than my own domain) or some kind of domain mapping (which I’m not exactly sure how to do with wordpress).  So, not much has happened on the posting side of things.  Fear not, however, something is coming, and it will be worth the wait.

First Post!

October 27, 2008

Hey All,

This is, quite obviously, the first post of my blog.  Since nobody knows about this site yet, this post is mostly for test purposes.  The plan is to put any and all random stuff about my life in this space.  It’s temporary, in that I want to eventually do all the hosting myself, but the wordpress people are way cool in providing this and you can’t beat the theme options… speaking of which, what do you think of this one?  I tend to just grab one and go, but I think this one works.

In the sidebar, I’m gonna have links to other blogs that I enjoy and am subscribed to and I also hope to have a page for any music and film stuff I’m involved in.  Quite the big experiment, but should be fun.  This is also a more convenient way for me to post things than running through my facebook, although I’ll probably try to find some kind of integration there as well.  Anyway, cheers for stopping by.  Come back soon.
