Yes, I am a virgin to the ages old art of blogging, though, when I was approached by qbix to take part in this website, I was eager to explore that uncharted interwebz territory. Of course, I have read many blogs, though none of them religiously or even with more than a passing fancy. Some entries have been amusing, others politically charged, but most of them hover all too closely to stream-of-consciousness bullshit.
So why be any different?
In fact, as I type this I have absolutely no idea where I want to go, much less how I want to end it. Should I talk about my side of the “Mac v. PC” argument that seems so popular as of late? Perhaps I should step more in line with the intent of this site and ruminate about the wonders and joys of video gaming. Maybe I should talk about how much I hate garbanzo and lima beans and cannot understand why anyone likes the little sons-of-bitches.
Choosing a topic for your first blog is a huge step. It doesn’t have the ramifications of choosing a mate, purchasing a car, or even deciding whether to have that fifth piece of pizza, knowing full well that you will be sweating grease for ten hours afterwards and end up having a nightmare about being stuck in traffic as a passenger in a car driven by that irritating old bitch that lives in the condo below you. However, it might set the tone for the rest of your blog entries. Maybe you will like the structure and make all of your other ones fit the same mental template. Maybe you will set the bar too high and every blog you write afterwards will be increasingly more disappointing to your readers. That is a lot of pressure.
I just want to get something down. Break the ice. Leeroy Jenkins the battle. It doesn’t have to be Earth shattering. It doesn’t have to make people think or laugh. I don’t have to cure cancer. I just need to tap the keys, click the mouse, and walk away. So considering that, I will Stop. Right. Here.
