Blogging 101: Why am I doing this?

I’ve wanted to write for as long as I can remember, but life kept getting in the way – I like living indoors. I could have made time, I just didn’t. Until now. And what I’m finding is that I have no idea whether my writing is any good. I’ve been writing technical stuff for years and everyone seems to understand what I write. So, I’ve got ‘clear’ down.

I’ve never been much for writing fiction. I prefer creative non-fiction – true stories. My dream is to write something like Thomas Friedman’s Hot, Flat, and Crowded. It doesn’t have to be on global warming; I like the broad research concept. I’m a long way from there, so I’m taking part in blogging 101 to get some feedback on my writing, some practice with the above concept, and create the discipline necessary to keeping moving forward.

I look forward to sharing with the group.
