This weblog’s primary purpose is merely to serve as an outlet for me to write. As the old maxim states, the best way to learn the craft of writing is to write. I have been turned off from said craft since college and have let my skills atrophy somewhat. Whether this exercise springboards into my composition of the “great American novel” that brings me universal adulation, peer envy, and piles of cash is unlikely, but stranger things have happened.
A secondary purpose of this site is to raise my comfort level with the concept of blogging, the blogosphere, and blogging software. At my current place of employment, weblogs and related content management systems are poised to potentially have a significant impact on intellectual and informational exchange. It is to my detriment to remain ignorant to the “blogging phenomenon.”
The site will not have any thematic niche, per se, but instead will focus on random ruminations that might strike me as particularly significant on a particular day. If my self-indulgent journaling is able to provide useful information or entertainment to the errant Googler, so much the better.
