As far as I know, I’ve never really considered writing a blog before. Apart from reading the occasional entry from a hilarious man named Eli on a blog called “It Just Gets Stranger”, I’ve never taken the time to follow a blog, either. So naturally, I’m not really sure what having a blog really entails, nor do I expect to get many followers on this.
So, this being the case, I’m forced to ask myself, “Why start a blog, then?”
I suppose there are several answers to this. The first being that I want to be a writer, and what better way to practice than by writing a blog? I’ve always loved reading books and have started writing a couple myself, slowly working towards completing my first maybe some time in the next decade.
The second reason, on a deeper level, is because I want to find out more about who I am. I know that I’m a Christian man with a wonderful wife and daughter. I know what I do for a living between building aircraft for the military and working on aircraft in the military. I know what I enjoy doing, which stretches anywhere from music to movies, writing to acting, hunting to fishing, etc etc.
That’s all good and well, but that’s what I am and what I do, not who I am.
So, in short, I guess this blog is dedicated to finding the real me. Some of my entries will be funny and light hearted; others will be serious and deal with issues I have or things about my faith I want to discuss.
Let’s see if this amounts to anything.
