A new blog.

So, a new blog. For me, at least.

I have blogged in the past. Twice, actually.

The first time, it was still called a "journal" and I used it to keep track of my progress towards, during and after my joint replacements (knee and two hips). I kept up with it for a bit, through all three surgeries, but afterwards it kind of died off.

The second time was on MySpace. I wrote a few random things, nothing major, nothing regular. I always thought "why bother" and "what could I post that anyone would want to read?" But, reading a post today from a friend who hit her six-year blog-anniversary, I was shown a reason why I should blog: For myself.

She made a point of saying that she writes to get the stuff out of her head, and that resonated with me. So, I will post what I want, when I want and how I want. I won't ask anyone to read it or comment on it or care about it.

I will at least be getting some flotsam and jetsam out of my head. Maybe I can help my writing, find some ideas for stories, articles - whatever. But it will all be just for me.

Feel free to read, or not. Feel free to share, or not. Enjoy it, or not.

I am going to!


  1. It's always nicer when you know someone is reading, and I'll be reading even if I don't comment.

    Hope you enjoy it all.

  2. It's nice to be able to connect with you here, Joe. Miss you all.
