Sometimes I wonder why I have this blog. Is it because I really feel like what I write needs to be read by as many people as possible? I don’t think so. Is it because I need an outlet for my thoughts and ideas? I think that is part of it. Are there other reasons that I haven’t fully explored? Sure. I enjoy writing. But I don’t take the time to write as often as I should. Perhaps some of that is due to the lack of response on this blog – not that I need a bunch of affirmation, but some response would be nice. At least so I will know that my words are not just floating out there in cyber space with absolutely no one reading them. So I guess I do need/want people to read what I write.
With that said, I have decided to make a few changes on here that will compel me to be more active on this blog. I am setting up a schedule for blog entries. I have three areas that I will focus on for right now. Mondays will be what I am calling My Monday Morning Rant. I like to rant – things get under my skin – so I think this would be a good place to include some of those rants. You will get to experience all the little things that drive me crazy and drive my wife crazy when I bring them up. Every Wednesday I will look at a Pop song and show how that simple song can shed the light on some important truths about life and faith. On Fridays I will post random entertainment and cultural observations. I don’t have a name for that yet but it will include things like films, books, albums, tv shows, sports, etc… I don’t have any specific motive in mind, but this gives the whole blog a little more structure.
I hope this makes sense and I hope I can stick to this schedule. I only ask one thing: If you read this blog on a regular basis or even a semi regular basis, please contact me or reply to one of my posts. I would like to know if anyone is getting anything out of this or if it is simply an opportunity for me to work on my writing.
