Welcome to ‘Thoughts and Rants in Jogging Pants’!! I have so much explaining to do. To express my excitement, I’ve already used 5 exclamation marks. I thought the best way to explain why I’m here, and what I’m doing would be to go through the 5 W’s of this process, but then I decided that I didn’t have the attention span for that, so here are some random bits of information designed to make this the most concise, informative blintrog ever!!
I’m a creative guy who has lots of opinions. I frequently update Facebook or some other social media outlet with my ‘thoughts and rants’ (actually it’s really just Facebook right now), but I’m far too verbose for their character restrictions. I can’t summarize what’s in my mind into a couple of neat little sentences. I ramble. Most people see my status updates and do the right thing, which is ignore them. Yet there always seem to be a few people that either like encouraging bad behaviour, or genuinely enjoy hearing what I have to say about the world and/or public transportation. Based on some positive feedback I’ve taken the next step as a writer, which is to write blogs. (BTW, that may not in fact be one’s next step as a writer, it just happens to be mine.)
A writer??? Really??? Maybe, who knows. It’s been on my bucket list to write a book. I haven’t gotten any sort of education to that end or even practiced my craft, so that I’d be good at it when the time came. I haven’t even done anything to become famous so if I did write a book, people would would buy it. Those are just details though. I’m the type of person that has always dreamed of parlaying minimal effort into money success and adoration. I might be wrong for that, but a guy can dream. What better time in our world’s history than now to make such a dream come true? Youtube manufactures anonymous superstars everyday. Can WordPress.com be far behind?
Here I go again! Another half assed attempt at a new career. I will try write a blog every Monday morning before I even change out of my jogging pants (which is what I wear to bed…. sexy I know). Some weeks I will give you thoughts, and other weeks it will be rants. You will know how much coffee I’ve had by the cohesiveness of my words. I apologize if I’m not still doing this 2 months from now. I tend to distract easily, and if the wind blows in an intriguing new direction I’ve been known to wander over there.
I hope you enjoyed my Blintrog!! What’s a Blintrog? It’s an intro blog, dummies!!! Call Websters, I want credit for that (but not badly enough to call them myself).

You’re writing every Monday? Genius. I’m the chump trying to write every day. I need to smarten up. You are my new role model – in an easy-going-no-pressure-to-ever-deliver kinda way.

I’m sure there are better role models than me 😉 but since I am your new role model, here’s some advice. Start as you wish to continue (you can apply that to anything btw). If you don’t think you can blog daily, set up a more realistic schedule, and let your ideas accumulate a bit. Here’s some conflicting advice…. if you want to be a writer, you need to write everyday.

accumulate ideas??? that’s just nuts.
