Welcome, dear, dear readers to my first official blog (Facebook Notes and similar social media aside). If you don’t know me, that’s okay; you’ll have ample opportunity to learn through this digital intermediary. Since this is an “introduction” of sorts, I won’t jump right into the unabashed life revelations just yet, and in lieu will begin by answering some questions.
I. Why I’m Blogging and Why You Should Give a Crap
Plain and simple: presence. Having spent nearly the twelve or so years of my web-surfing life remaining under the radar (Google searches for my name don’t lead searchers to me but other imposters, such as the Jewish Brit author), I am stepping out of the womb of oblivion into the light of the Internet. I don’t know why you should give a crap, but an aspiring writer apparently needs a blog, so here you go.
II. What Can You Expect
Nothing terribly important, I’ll be honest. I’m a bit self-deprecating, but in a sardonic, Conan O’Brien-type way…but I don’t possess his comedic genius. Honestly, you can expect an amalgam of my various masquerades: humor, candid opinion, reflections, dorkiness, blah, blah, blarggg. I’ll attempt to limit the volume of self-assertion I seem to have a proclivity toward, but I learned long ago not to make promises I can’t keep (har har).
III. Why the Verbose Headline?
Popped into my head one day, put it down. Anyone who knows me can tell you I suffer from mild social retardation, or constipation, or whatever term fits your fancy. I won’t complain, but I’ll take liberal use of candor. It’s the way I live my life! (The headline’s changeable anyway. Thanks, WordPress!)
Yep, that’s pretty much the short and skinny, as someone said probably two hundred years ago. Check back later for a real post. Or don’t. It’s a free world (in some places).
Much cyber love,
P.S. The title of this entry is the first track off Kishi Bashi’s debut album, 151a.
