One Actor’s Mark On a Virtual Stage

I know. When you clicked on “blog” you were probably expecting the standard WordPress list of recent posts. I wanted to change it up and go into a bit more about me beyond the “bio” on the front page. Don’t worry. The blog in it’s (mostly) usual form is still present under “Cogitations” above.

So, what’ll you find in my blog?

Here you’ll find a more personal touch. Insight into my personality, if you will.  One actor’s mark on a virtual stage: That’s the essential concept behind this blog. Earlier attempts at making my presence known online (via a now defunct domain) failed.  Miserably. Okay, not miserably. But technology of the day – this was a while ago, mind you – was not supportive of my need for a simple (read: mindlessly non-involved) interface wherein I could update content without the hassle of FTP, a text editor, and coding knowledge. Granted, I have all that but, well, I’m lazy. Let me rephrase that. I’m not completely lazy or unmotivated.  However, the laziness and procrastination that lay within me were, up until recently, far superior to the motivation required to take action. That has all changed.

So, you have what you see before you. Within the figurative borders of this blog, I shall endeavour to build a place where people will come to find out who I am, what I’m up to, and what I’m about. (And then cast me in their various voice over and on-camera projects thereby allowing me the opportunity to buy a gaming rig from somebody like Falcon Northwest.)  You will discover my likes, my dislikes, and I’ll try to explain what I do and why it is I do it. What you (most likely) won’t find here is a series of rants or complaints about the state of affairs in the United States. I’m saving that for TheDumbingDown.com. If I have time to build it, that is.  (Update:  I never found the time.)  I also tried to get political at (the now defunct as well) WithoutPreconditions.com but The Huffington Post Reddit.com basically says what I’d want to say. Plus, keeping a political blog current is almost a full-time job. I’ve got the equivalent of several of those already.

Well, what are you waiting for? Explore the site. What? You’re finished? Oh. Yeah. I’m still sort of, um, building it. In that case, if you like what you’ve read, tell your friends, and come back later.  Eventually, there will be more “goodness”.  (I know “eventually” is somewhat indeterminate.  I’ll aspire to add content before the sarlacc finishes its next meal. 😉 )
