untied shoes

Once upon a time, I had a blog on this site. That was back in the early days, before Tumblr and Twitter and when Google Reader ruled the RSS land. It never became anything terribly great. Mostly because I didn’t give it any more attention than an afterthought.

I’ve wanted to reboot my blog at different times since then, but could never settle on that narrow topic that successful bloggers cite as the necessary starting point for all blogs. Since that narrow focus eluded me, I interpreted it as permission to not even try.

No longer. I still don’t have a succinct elevator pitch in which I can tell you exactly what this blog is about. But one thing I’ve learned is that I need to just start to see where I’m heading.

And that is what this first post is: the next necessary step. Along the way, I’m sure I will take wrong turns and detours, but I believe I will also find my voice and maybe even the purpose behind this blog. I’m not sure where this will all lead, but you are more than welcome to join me on the journey and see where we end up together.
