The Family Site

Okay, after much thinking about it today and yesterday, i think i finally have a plan.

This blog that you are currently reading is going to become the family blog. I will keep pictures, videos, and family info posted here. I have yet to figure out the frequency of my posting, but it could be as frequent as weekly and hopefully no less frequent than monthly. Anyways if you're reading this and it is the newest post and it has been more than a month, feel free to email me and let me know you expect more from me.

And if you are interested in my other rantings and and i do happen to be disciplined enough to actually record them feel free to check out my other site.

Still Haven't Found...

Okay, so as promised i still haven't figured out what this blog is going to be about. However, i did do some basic updating today. I go back and forth between several options:

do nothing at all
This is obviously the default position and the easiest to do. I don't like this option however, because i do think it is important that i start writing on a daily basis to improve my skills (eg bow-hunting).

theological blog
this would not be a place for others to come and learn, but rather a place to get practice at summarizing things that i am learning. Again, i wouldn't expect anyone to read this other that maybe some close friends. I have been frustrated with some of the blogs of this nature in the recent past. It seems that some have used this realm to tear down rather than build up. Click Here for more on the ridiculousness of that. I don't want to say too much more on that for fear of becoming what i criticize.

family update blog
this would make sense and probably be fairly easy. I could just set a reminder on my computer to go off every week and then grab the camera and load up the most recent movie and write out any current goings on.

if it is possible this sounds like best option. a little bit of this, a little bit of that, just a good ol' smörgåsbord of fun! The potential problems here: Do my family really want to hear my rant about theology? or vice versa?

anyways, so much to still decide, but at least i posted something today.

the first one (but not really)

i've started a blog. This is not the first attempt and i am not going to get upset if i don't use this one either. But, you gotta start somewhere (again!) I am not sure what this blog may end up as, but here are some possibilities about it:

a place to express current thoughts
a place to keep family/friends informed
a place to collect and keep information i find useful
a place to practice the habit of writing

who knows! I guess time will tell and we may look back at this post one day and laugh, but more likely i will be the only one to look back on it and think "wow, there was another one of those times i started something, had good intentions, and never followed through!"
