It’s time for me to blog.
Blogging has been around for a couple decades now yet I have resisted joining in. Other than documenting my 2.5 year trip around-the-world on mikethenomad.com, I have not regularly published my thoughts online. I’m not into social media, not into telling you about every move I make and then awaiting your comments. I want to write about real things: politics, religion, parenting, racism, guns, travel….life. I have a lot of experience (I’m 46 as of this writing), seen a few places, done a few things…so it’s time I started writing it down..
I philosophize a lot. At BBQs in my backyard, at the office, at the dinner table, at the brewery….it seems people find my stories and opinions generally interesting, so why not reach out to a wider audience?
I hope you enjoy it. I hope it provokes thought. I hope you disagree. I hope most of all that we can discuss it, at BBQs, at the office, at the dinner table, at the brewery…as a country we’ve lost our ability to converse, especially with those from the “other” side.
I want to bring it back. I want my blog to help resurrect the national conversation. Too lofty? Meh, I’ve got to try.
