The first blog post is the hardest.

At least it is for me.

There are so many things that should be said. There are so many things that are important to say. If a blogger wants to be successful in truly influencing and retaining a few really devoted readers, they have to constantly push themselves (yeah, you Brack) to write about what their visitors would want to read. Not so much about what the blogger wants to share at the time.

So there-in lies the challenge with this blog.

I've been wanting to start this for quite some time. My bank of ideas, journal notes, helpful tips, questions, etc, on varying subjects is beginning to explode. I have found myself being very frustrated that I don't have the time to develop them all further, while at the same time trying to be a good husband, father and friend. These ideas, many of them being profound to no one, are for me, causing a feeling of pressure that needs a release. I feel pushed to get these ideas out there. I'm hoping this blog will be the pressure release that I know I need.

So, to keep you coming back, while at the same time satifying my desire to share ideas, I will ask myself constantly, "what will my readers want to hear?"

Ready, set, go!

  1. Someone smarter and deeper than me said something to the effect of "Those most in need of your love and attention usually deserve it the least." What if those boys really DON'T know what good they could be doing at 11:30 or otherwise? Whose job is it to teach them, and how does one foster a desire in them to care in the first place?

    I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child, but our society doesn't employ that thinking any longer. So rather than allow the police officer or the neighber show her boys how to better spend their time, their mother removes all responsiblity from both the village, and her children. Who IS taking responsibility then?
