This is the obligatory “first post”.
I wish we could all just skip to the next, obviously more meaty “second post”, but alas, you and I are stuck with this one.
Besides, if we did skip ahead to the next post, then that one would, by definition, be the “first post” and we’d be back here, where we started. So let’s make the best of this one.
I’ve had several blogs over the years. My first covered stuff like professional interests, hobbies, and family life. It died a long, slow, painful death and is now in the mausoleum of the Internet Archive. My second blog was a gardening and beekeeping blog, two passions of mine, but alas, it too, has died, along with my tomato and squash plants.
I still keep a blog for my business, Shoestring Networks, that doles out computer and network security tips to small businesses.
And now there’s this, most originally titled, blog.
My vision for this blog is to cover the crafty schemes, plots and intrigues of a middle-aged man, answering questions like:
- How do you navigate a middle-life crisis (Do you buy the sports car, or trade in your 40 year old wife for two twenty year olds?)
- How much should you exercise, or should you give up on abs and accept your “dad bod”?
- What should you do as a twenty or thirty year old man so that you’re successful in your forties, fifties and sixties?
By the way, I’m not sixty. I think I just voiced, out loud, my hope that this blog won’t die a premature death.
Is that enough for a first post? Can we move on to the next, certainly life-changing blog entry?
I think so.
