There. I created a blog account. I finally stopped procrastinating. I have been thinking about starting a blog in a long while. But I think part of the reason for not doing it in the past was the unusually high expectations I set for myself. Anyway, now that I'm actually doing it, let me share what hope to get out of this:
I want this blog to be about stuff that i am interested in. That way it will be more fulfilling on my part. Just an advanced warning: I am interested in A LOT of things. But while my interest and curiosity level is off the scale, let me tell you I don't consider myself as a hard core anything. I am not the expert or the ultimate authority. Sometimes i would even be grammatically challenged (see? no period)
However, I will make sure that this blogging thing will not be a vanity project. Hopefully, readers will be affected. Or at least entertained. Or at least pickup something they will remember, if not use, in their lives. Even jokes can be useful sometimes right?
I will also make sure we have lots of original content going around. We'll have content without sacrificing quality. Quality content is what counts (told you I had high expectations)
So that's it for my first blog. I would like to end this post by sharing this relevant quote from Benjamin Franklin:
If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are rotten, either write things worth reading or do things worth the writing.

Starting May, Google will have access to your internet usage via a cookie. This cookie will help Google provide the most appropriate ads for my blog, and any other website using Google Adsense, basing on your internet history. For example, if you frequent websites about Blogging, Health and Fitness, or Personal Finance, Google will show health or finance related ads in my blog, and any other website using Google Adsense. The reasoning is that you will be more interested in these ads and will help you find what you are possibly looking for.
For more information about these changes and how it affects our privacy, go to Google Privacy Center. Also, if you think these changes are not acceptable for you, there is a blue "opt out" button you can click. If you opt out, you will still see Google ads in my blog, but they will be based on the content of my posts, not on your personal internet history.
Please take time to read more. Whatever you do, make sure you understand the effects to your privacy.
