I ready to commit to a new blog. I tried to write one a couple months ago, but found the whole thing a little weird. There were a couple things that bothered me...first I dont like using the first person too much...and there's a real limit to how much you can talk about yourself without saying "I" 4 times in a paragraph. Second I am really wary of the long-lasting effects of people posting too much personal information, from both and emotional and personal economic standpoint. Remember that movie "The Game?" Now someone could do it to a random person who's blog they read. Nuts to that.
So having said that I decided what that this blog will not be: a running diary of what I am doing or what is going on in my life. Those things are many times way to ridiculous for me to want any historical record of other than hearsay. And chances are if it was really ridiculous I'll tell you anyway. Some exceptions would be anything that would warrant issuing a press release if I was famous: birth/wedding/death announcements, career advancement, and similar.
Here's what it will be: A view on politics, culture, and sports from the perspective of a young professional in Cambridge, i.e. my face. As such I'll try to write clearly and professionally but briefly and informally (as is the style of the times). And I'll also try to throw in some pics and youtube links. Again, I dont want to write about myself, but nuck your face...it might happen.
Cross your fingers...coming soon might be a picture of my dog, Ranger.
In the mean time here's my first real post.
