Well my foray into the cyberworld has been both good and bad. Good because it has forced me to start thinking about sharing ideas with a larger community but bad because I haven’t really acted on those thoughts.
At first I got caught up with the idea that I had to put together large pieces of work that were a synthesis of all of the information I’d collected about a certain subject – often times this would have to be broken down into several smaller, digestible chunks and the fact of the matter was that this seemed too overwhelming. I spent hours gathering my thoughts and information in order to write a worthy piece and then never post it. I simply ran out of time.
After a while I figured that I might as well do some smaller pieces just with more regularity but then I never could figure out where to start. I would argue with myself that I couldn’t discuss a certain subject without giving some background information first. As a result I basically never posted any of those attempts either.
Well I’m coming from a new place now…I hope this one is a better formula. I figure that I have enough to write about that I will discuss topics as they interest me – sorry, no background, but we can back fill additional information as necessary. The key is that you need to provide input. I want your ideas, information and questions too. I had started this blog with the idea that it would be an open forum – so let’s see where this takes us.
