Hello, people of the interwebs. I’ve been thinking about starting up a personal blog for a while now, but I’ve been procrastinating. Well… I finally got myself “a round tuit” (see the image of the the round thing hanging on my wall), so I no longer have any excuses.
I’ve been asking myself that very question for quite a while. I’ve often wondered why people would publish their personal thoughts, in all their glory, for the whole world to see. I guess, since I’ve been putting my thoughts out there in 140 characters on Twitter and status updates on Facebook for a few years, I’ve become a little more comfortable with such a public forum.
A good blog has many important attributes. Interesting topics, quality writing, and frequent posts, just for starters. Those attributes require a lot of work and commitment, and I’m finally ready to jump in with both feet.
Why the name Craigthusiast?
I have many interests. Some are work-related, and many more are fun-related. I also love to learn. I don’t like being a noob at something. I prefer to be knowledgeable and expertly. I tend to become a student of the subject. Some might even say, an enthusiast.
Hopefully others will find my interests interesting too. I guess we shall see…
Some of the topics I hope to blog about:
- Current events
- Being a Dad
- Social media
- Technology and gadgets
Hope you enjoy! If you do, perhaps you’ll Tweet, Like, or +1 me to your networks.
+1… is that a verb now?
Also, please comment on this for me. I’m looking for some feedback. In your mind, what is the most important attribute of a good blog that makes you want to come back and read future posts. I’m still learning about this whole blogging thing, so I look forward to hearing from you.
