A Mission Statement (of sorts)

4 03 2010

More than once recently someone has mentioned that they thought I should write a blog.  More than once recently I have thought that there were topics I had covered in 140 characters or less on Twitter that I would have liked to have expanded upon.  More than once someone has questioned whether my stories would translate to the written page since to say that my delivery style is ‘animated’ is a gross understatement!

To be honest, I don’t know if I can manage a blog.  Twitter has been a wonderful fit for my short attention span, but I’m willing to try.  I don’t know if I have enough topics I’d like to expand upon (or that would be funny, useful, or interesting enough) to warrant a blog, but I’m willing to try.  I *really* don’t know if my delivery translates well on the written page, but, again, I’m willing to try.

In the past, I haven’t considered myself to be either strongly opinionated or passionate about things, but more and more I find that there are things that interest me and that are important to me enough to put a voice to them.

I think that many of these things are humorous or at least have funny components, but some are horribly sad and others make me apoplectic. My goal is to focus on the positive, uplifting, and funny with a healthy dose of cynicism and sarcasm, but as I enter the first anniversaries of some of the worst times of my life I can’t promise that the grief won’t slip in here and there. However, I *do* promise to try to insert at least a little levity into the tougher topics.

I don’t even kid myself that anyone will actually read these entries (or that I’ll be brave enough to admit to my friends that I’m making the attempt to test their theories), but it will be interesting to see as I work to find my ‘voice’ here.  At the very least, I’ll have an opportunity to delve a little deeper into some of the things that catch my eye as I continue navigate my way through this life I’ve been living.
