I haven't been keeping up with my blog the way I should be, and the way I'd originally planned to. I had so many different ideas for a more focused blog, something that would give me some type of dissertation inspiration. I'm just going to have to settle for having a bland blog for the time being.

On a completely random note, I'm typing this entry on the Blogger app for ipad, and it totally rocks!

A new blog entry

When I started this blog, I knew that one of the first posts I wanted to do was an introductory post, one that talks about myself and gives the reader a little insight into who I am. I'm finding that to be a bit difficult.

I've always found it difficult to talk about myself. Fundamentally, I think I've always thought of myself as a pretty boring person. I'm making some inroads to change that, but in the meantime, I rarely know how to begin talking about myself.

There was one thing in particular that I wanted to talk about, but quite frankly, it's a pretty heavy and depressing topic, and I'm a bit too happy to talk about it right now. Tomorrow I'll work on it.

But for now, here's a picture of me at Spanishtown Mardi Gras a few years ago.

Remember all that big talk I made about keeping up with the blog? I'm finding it a bit more difficult to do so than I realized. I'm thinking about making certain days of the week "blogging" days; that way I can at least get in that practice that I need.

So, after my first post, I've been thinking a lot about this blog, and my last one over at Livejournal, and what I want out of this one. I still haven't decided, apart form the idea that I want to write more, and daily writing can do nothing but help me over the next couple of years. I've thought about what types of topics I want to talk about, what kind of focus I want to have for the blog, but I don't necessarily have one. For now, it's just going to be my awkward ramblings, at least until I get back into the blogging rhythm.

introductory post

While this isn't my first foray into blogging, I haven't kept up with a blog regularly in years. Possibly a decade.

I decided to start a blog because I have major, massive, almost insurmountable issues with my writing. Which tends to present quite an issue when one is trying to write a dissertation.

And I think this first post pretty accurately sums up my writing issues. Granted, I'm at work at the moment, and sort of rushing this post in while other work piles up on my desk, but this is how I write. I say something, and it just ends.

It's going to be a long ride, people.
