Is ranting on a blog going to become the bread & butter of my life? The daily interest in creating something has all-a-sudden reawakened to write and keep daily happenings on paper. I’ve taken the first uncertain step in my life and moved 45 miles away from my old hometown. This was a giant leap and it’s turns out, there’s a great existence outside of Cedar City, Utah. I’ve got big plans in the making. I’ve been a car salesman for a month now and I’m getting ready to smack the turf. Oh, and this town, St. George, has an abundance of beautiful-educated women.
I’m tempted to get political and become a pundit. They talk about developing a niche blog to build a community but I’m not so savvy on that idea? I don’t want this work to be canned and was thinking of doing exactly the opposite! Keeping it canned is what killed my creativity before. I don’t want to be afraid of stepping on toes and earning a few enemies.
Blogging appeals to me because I love writing. My first blog back in 2003 was a MovableType installation. WordPress is simpler without so many nuts and bolts. I miss the complexities of MT for sentimental reasons when blogging was such a new concept and Facebook hadn’t seen the light-of-day.
Oh how the world has changed in ten years, and the web as become the new social media reality. Now we are looking at revolutions in the Middle East sparked by Twitter. We can blog about corruption in government and pig-like politicians. We can venture out as citizen journalists, as well as pundits. Isn’t that sweet!
