Kevin made me do it.


A year and a half ago when I decided to try blogging again, I blamed it on Darren Larson. Or at least my efforts to be as cool as Darren. Now I point the finger at Kevin Bruursema. A little John Palmieri also. Always easier to blame someone else. Right Eve?

I had a conversation with Kyle Flanner tonight at SHIFT about blogging - the main point being, "Why do it?" The repeated phrase that we shared was, "processing life." Hence, the renaming of this blog. As I read books, watch movies, experience things with my family and friends, or whatever - I'm going to try and process it here as much as I can, should.

Most people I've met who blog fall into one of three categories
1. They think the entire world reads their blog.
2. They think no one reads their blog.
3. Starting out within either #1 or #2 they quickly forget that they have a blog.

I know those are huge exaggerations. Just the same, my goal is to avoid #'s 1 and 3 and just write as if #2 is true.

If someone decides to check back here periodically to read what I write...well, it's your internet bill.

Great to have you blogging bro. I will be a reader of your blog. And I'm happy to receive credit for annoying you into this.

Hey Bobby - Glad that I have had a little influence on your decision to enter once again into the Blogoshere. Maybe your decision will give me the extra boost I need to get back on track with my blog. Hmmm...Maybe I won't shut mine done after all. I like your book listing and the link to your personal rating of books -- cool!

You're at LEAST as cool as me.
