Blogging Newbie

Welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by! This is my first foray into the world of blogging, so do be gentle in at least your initial comments. To be perfectly honest, I haven't even really decided what direction I want to take this blog. Until I make up my mind - which could be a while - posts will veer off in any number of directions. Sort of the anti-Seinfeld. It's a blog about everything, for now at least. About a hundred post ideas are swirling around my ADHD brain, most of which are wholly unrelated save for one factor - they all involve my perspective, my particular and sometimes novel way of seeing them. I'll try to offer a glimpse of the criss-crossed tangle of ideas that will eventually make up my little nook within the internet universe.

Initial posts will be lists of my likes and dislikes, each with an invitation to the reader to reply with their comments on the items I've listed or a list of their own favorites and fails - everything from movies to foods to bumper sticker quotes. Another idea that's been occupying the forefront of my brain for the past few weeks is a defense of one of my favorite and often unfairly maligned philosophers - Friedrich Nietzsche. Many of my posts will likely involve clearing up commonly held misconceptions, like those regarding Nietzsche, that I feel are important to rectify for one reason or another. Religion, politics and social commentary will make up several posts, if not the majority. I'll also write about personal experiences that I hope will inspire or, at the very least, entertain. And so, without further ado, I will take my first tentative steps on the path to blogging glory.
