First Twitter, and now…this?

So.  I’ve been avoiding this for awhile now.  For some reason I have always been convinced that I’d have to be an idiot to assume that people would want to read what is basically my public diary.  I mean, how arrogant can you be?  And Twitter, O Twitter! The root of all evil. That’s the worst kind of blogging.  The kind where I have to assume that my friends want to know what I’m doing seven times a day.

Yeah.  I broke down and signed up for a Twitter account last week.

So really, this is nothing compared with that mammoth avalanche of a social and moral decline.  In fact, Thomas has got me convinced that maybe this isn’t even that arrogant at all.  It’s not really a public diary.  It’s just the thoughts that go through my head while I’m driving in the car by myself, or taking a shower (also by myself) or trying to get to sleep at night.  And maybe I should give God a bit more credit for the brain that he gave me and make a different assumption– the assumption that just some of these thoughts of mine are actually worthy to be heard by more than my dashboard or my loofah or my pillow.

I don’t promise that this will be action-packed.  I don’t promise that it will be profound, or beautiful, or refreshing.  Actually, I don’t even promise that it will be grammatically correct.  But it will always be honest and sincere.  And even if you only ever read one line of one post, I want to thank you for taking time out of whatever you do to join in this conversation.  Welcome to the thoughts of One Dead Poet.

  1. Oh, and I forgot to mention this in the about section or my first post: If anything here ever makes you think, if anything at all passes through the space between your ears, then leave a comment. This blog is more about you than it is about me.
