Sterotypical First Post

What is this experiment I am conducting? I have gone many years with no desire to have a presence on the web, and now I am on facebook, twitter, and blogger. What will come of all of this? Why now? Well, let this first post explain some of my reasons. Explain to whom? Anyone who cares, I guess.

There are many reason why I am embracing the web now. First, I am a web developer. The Internet is not going away anytime soon, and you cannot deny the power of social networking. How, as a professional, can I call myself a web developer and not keep up with emerging trends and technologies?

Second, and more personal, I feel that I have lost contact with many of my friends. I miss you all, and the web is a tool to help me reestablish these friendships.

Third, and most personal, I want to write. I have always wanted to be a writer. I am taking this opportunity to establish a writing habit. If anyone reads my stuff, that's great! But I cannot become a good writer with out practice. Well, I'm practicing.

Last, I want to share my thoughts with everyone. Why? I don't know. Maybe you'll find what I have to say interesting. Let me know. Maybe you'll disagree with me. Let me know. I would love to hear any type of feedback. The mere fact that someone may be reading this makes me happy.

Stay tuned!


  1. Good on you, brother-in-law. Being a web developer, I bet a blog could help be a great promotion for you, another page in your portfolio (so to speak). I look forward to following more of your posts!

  2. Way to go Dave (I always wanted to start a movie blog myself). I look forward to your fun, witty, just because, and thought provoking blog posts. Catch ya later -Clay

  3. WOOOO! The Dave-blog, rockin' the interwebs!
