On March 28th I posted my initial blog At The Front Of My Mind because I had this impression, probably horribly misguided, that people may have an interest in what I think about, well, everything. Since then I have made it to 100 and have as yet been exposed as a fraud and ran out of bloggerdom. So I will consider myself lucky and continue writing.
Along the way I have found that I genuinely enjoy doing this. I like to write so this is an easy and convenient way to do it and still live my real life as a father, husband, and a Nurse. I have made some friends along the way and have a great time talking with all of you, even the ones that I disagree with. Finally, doing this is cheaper than therapy. I am very passionate about politics (I know, stunning, I hide it so well) and writing about politics provides an outlet.
My wife, while as conservative as I am, is not much of a political animal. She worries about silly things like the kids, and the bills, and school functions, weird huh. I used to drive her nuts talking to her about politics. I think she may be more grateful I am doing this than I am. I’m leaving her alone, most of the time. Sometimes she comes too near and gets snagged into a discussion. So blogging gives me, and her, an out.
The thing I appreciate though is the visitors. I would likely have not continued doing this if not for all of you. The writing is fun but the interaction is what I get the satisfaction from. So thank all of you and I look forward to doing 100’s more.
On that note, I am taking the weekend off and going to visit my parents. I am putting myself on moderation because I have had one less than cooperative friend. Please feel free to comment and I will catch up when I get home.
