So, I've never been a blogger. As a matter-of-fact, I was always quite against it. I always wondered why people whose lives bore even themselves would ever think someone else would want to read about it. Further, I thought the question, "What in the world is Tyson up to?" is about as important to society as "Are we consuming too much garlic as a people?"
But then, it occurred to me (while I should have actually been working on my 50+ page case study for school), that I post things on Facebook quite a bit, and I seem to have a decent following therein. In addition, there is enough drama on Facebook. I don't want to be "that guy." But, I always appreciate the insight my friends and family give. And, it seems to be easier to seek when I can type it up all in one place. I don't have to call or e-mail everyone one-by-one.
2013 has been quite a year of ups-and-downs. It has also been a year of quite a few firsts. So, I will add to that list, my first blog. My first entry, and my first time actually giving into the world of blogging. Will this make me a "blogger?" Probably not. But who knows. I may really like it. To be honest, I probably won't post regularly, or, like with everything else, I will post a lot for a while, then not so much (or at all).
It has been a time of great introspect, as of late. I think it will be good for me at least, to put my thoughts down. Hopefully, it will be good for others as well. I hope I will at least have some regular readers. Maybe some of the things on here will even help others. I've always wanted to make a mark on the world for the better. And maybe this will be one step towards doing that.
