This Blog

So I'm always wondering what tone to take with this blog.

Sometimes I feel I'm being too basic, but I know that there are people reading this blog who know nothing about the subjects I'm talking about.

Sometimes I feel I'm getting too complicated, but I know there are people reading this blog who could teach me far more on these subjects than I could ever teach them.

I try to strike a balance--just spouting what I know (or what I research that night) about a particular topic I find interesting, in the hopes someone else will find it interesting, too.

I don't post a lot of personal stuff--stuff like "Today I wore a shirt that's been too tight for months now, and it fit pretty well!" I don't know how interesting people would find that stuff--I personally find it exciting, but can't imagine why anybody else would.

I guess what I'm mostly looking to give are insight and excitement. A sense of what you can accomplish and how. Do I succeed? Who knows. But in the meantime, it keeps me going with my goals, and keeps me looking for new insights and new reasons to be excited.

Can't speak for anyone else, and I can't really give you a reason why, but I think that personal things (like the shirt that was tight isn't anymore) would be a great addition to this blog. Sort of a great way of peppering the educational/informative bits with a lil something to drive the message home for us.
