I told myself this summer that I was going to do three things:
- Read more
- Write more
- Run more
If I were honest with myself, I haven’t been doing either of these things very well. At best, it’s been hit and miss.
Obviously, this blog is hopefully going to satisfy #2 in my Summer To-Do List. Writing is something I enjoy. Something I need to do. I’m not a rookie at blogging. I blog about what I know and what I love to do. I have my own blog about running, and I am a contributor about My Beloved Huskers, and Teaching. You would think that that would be enough.
You would be wrong.
What I’ve found is that there a lot of things that rattle around in my head that don’t fit into these specific venues. While I love to write, I don’t think the authors at the teaching blog would see any use for me posting about my adventures as a Mr. Mom at our local pool. Nor would it make sense to complain…er…vent about my job on the Husker blog.
That brings me to this blog. This will be a catch-all blog. If it’s about running, great. Huskers? Probably later on this fall. Teaching? More than likely. Everything else? Most definitely? Like the title of the blog implies: This is my blog and these are my rules.
Truth be told, I’m also trying out this new-fangled Tumblr that all the kids with their ironic t-shirts and hipster glasses are raving about. (Read that last sentence in an old-man voice. It’s a lot funnier.)
Tumblr vs. Blogger….it’s on.
