My first blog
This is my first blog. One minute I'm reading an ad about blogs in Time magazine, the next minute I'm an official blogger! Welcome me to the Wide Wild Web. I looked at quite a few blogs before deciding to be a blogger myself, so I didn't take the step lightly.
What struck me most about this medium is people tend to be too specialized for my taste. As I was mowing the yard today (and watching the neighbor's yard boy do theirs), it struck me just how damn specialized everything is now. We can't even mow our own yards anymore, much less clean our own houses or cook our own damn dinners. Thus, my title, Everything And/But Nothing. (Which originally started out as Everything and Nothing, which was taken, and then EverythingNothing, which was taken. Which also got me wondering if this wasn't like the old days on the Web. People were buying all the best blog names and trying to sell them later.)
To make a long blog entry (is that the correct term?) short, my blog will be about everything and/but (sometimes, probably, honestly) nothing...what I'm reading, listening to, doing, dreading, avoiding by blogging, etc. Wish me luck!
