Many years ago, a friend of mine told me I should start a blog.
“What for?” I asked.
Flash forward a decade and my website had fallen into disrepair, my new computer couldn’t run the software that I needed to update it, and I couldn’t seem to find any reasonable way to replace it.
Perhaps it was time, I thought, to take my friend’s advice.
I did some research, figured out how to host a blog on my own website, went through all of the necessary steps to set it up (including paying fees), created a banner for the top of the page, made other aesthetic choices regarding the design, and then promptly ignored it for a year and a half.
Apparently I had nothing to say.
Maybe that’s why I had been so skeptical about the whole thing all those years ago.
From time to time I would feel bad about it, and then I would vow to get my blog going soon. But I could never decide what to start with. The longer I waited, the more it seemed like I had to have a really good idea for my first blog post. And that just paralyzed me.
Well, I now know that the only way to get anything done is to just do it.
And so I am.
Once this horrible post is behind me, perhaps I will able to move forward in a more reasonable way. I can’t guarantee it, but it’s worth a try.
So, there you have it. I am 100% Certified Angus Kohm.
