Good habits to get into

18-cockpit-avion-boeing-787As I went through this blog’s past and spent the last few days thinking about what I wanted this thing to be, it dawned on me that I had already put some good things in place here when I began… For instance, I really like the idea of throwing multiple topics out in brief bullets in the same post, something I referred to in the early days as FLICS, “Five Little Internet Conversation Starters.” Topics often come into my mind in waves, so I thought I’d share them almost as quickly as they spring up.

I also like when posts are fully tagged and easy to find. This will be important here because I intend to cover lots of ground: life, politics, sports, culture, sexuality and relationships, language, and more. I’m hoping to make the comments sections open and interactive and encourage different views and emotions to be shared using my posts as a jumping off point.

All it will take is some practice. WordPress, even these several years later, remains a cockpit to me, a place where an awful lot happens but where I don’t necessarily know what everything does. All I know is I want to press every single button I can.

Hi.

I recently decided I needed a new place to talk about things.

It had to be more private than Facebook.
It had to give me more space than Twitter.
It had to be more flexible than the blog I used when I was younger.

So here we are. Enjoy the crazy.
