Look out!


OK, folks, I’m going to let you have it.

On a weekly basis, I’m going to unload a portion of my brain. With any luck, I’m not going to miss the bit that will show up here, and with an extraordinary amount of luck, it’ll be something relevant to you and might even cause you to read it.

I’m not holding my breath.

And neither should you. It might kill me. (Heh. A little ambiguous circular reference humor there for you.)

Why am I doing this?

Honestly, I don’t know. It’s not like I don’t have enough to do. I have a full-time job that keeps me busy enough that I don’t have time during the day to simply sit around and think of things to write about. It’s not like I don’t have two boys who are wonderful and keep me busy. It’s not like my relationship with my wife requires some significant rework, which we’re doing. It’s not like I don’t have a pretty large house that requires cleaning, laundry, maintenance, etc., to be done on a regular basis.

And it’s not like I’m not posting enough as it is. I thought to myself a while back, “Hey, I wonder if I can post something daily,” and took it upon myself to do just that. (With the exception of Sundays, I’ve been successful.) Even if the posts are not much more than a few words about a headline, they’re posts, and they’re daily.

So… why?

Still, I don’t know. Is it to attract fame and fortune? If it is, then I’m in for a pretty big shock, I’d imagine, because I’m not going to attract fame and fortune merely by putting my thoughts out into the ether.

And, for that matter, how am I going to attract people to the website to read it in the first place? I’m not going to be able to do so by posting pictures of dogs with crap balanced on their heads. I’m not going to be able to do it by writing crass articles about Macintosh computers, as some do. I’m certainly not going to do it by writing good articles about the functionings and machinations of Wall Street. (If I understood that well enough to write about it, I’d certainly consider making a living as something other than an engineer.)

So what will I write about?

Come back and see. First article due out next week, and it’ll be a shocker.
