On Blogging

So, this is my first text entry into my first blog. I thought it made sense to give at least a bit of context as to why I’m blogging. I don’t really expect to get much traffic by having this blog. I’m not making it a blog about a specific topic or subject matter that can thus try to bring in a group of people with that same particular interest.

Rather I want to get myself into the habit of writing, hopefully at least semi-regularly, and doing so in a fashion that can be shared with others. Most of the writing I’ve done in the past couple of years has been more a set of personal ramblings that is largely not something shareable. So, I think the purpose of this blog is to get myself to write more and also do so in a more publicly consumable fashion. Though I realize that this would not be a mission statement that would be of interest to readers.

However, hopefully some of my upcoming posts are worth a read. I don’t know what all they will cover. Likely topics that typically interest me, be it movies and books, travel, food, or any other general topics of interest or worth contemplation or discussion.

We’ll just have to see what type of ordure I decide to post on here. Speaking of which, check out my about this blog page, if you’re wondering about the name. And one other aside, as this is my first time setting up a blog, I wasted a bunch of time trying to pick a theme and then trying to sort out a header image, etc. The theme I’m currently using showed a default image at the top, but I couldn’t figure out how to set that back up, and looking at themes with a header image I wasn’t finding ones I liked. So I may well change that at some point, or just dig into the html and add a picture there anyway. But on initial setup, I found more ways to waste time in setting it up than I intended too. Though that in itself isn’t necessarily surprising.
