Hi Blog? Why Are You Here?

Maybe this is PJTP. But I wonder why I even need a blog? I mean, with social media being the shit show that it is where if you post an opinion you either get instantly praised or justly vilified. I wonder about the popularity of this very remote corner of the vast internet.

That’s all. Maybe this would have worked better as a Google Plus post. (Oh, right, that’s not a thing anymore.)

Carry on.

Why I Don’t Get Political On My Blog

With all of the #ComeyDay stuff going on today, I feel that I need to put my thoughts down on why I don’t post about politics on my blog.

This isn’t to say that I’m not deeply concerned with what goes on in politics.  I do care in what goes on in the world around me.  I surely can’t escape hearing about it every day I’m at work and directing a newscast.

This blog has and always will be an escape.  An escape to the topics which interest me and only me.  You might find these topics either very interesting or very boring.  I don’t personally care.  I don’t play it up any more than that.  This is a place for my thought and my discoveries, and I feel like there are plenty of people out there to digest and have opinions about what goes on in politics already.

I am not an expert on government.  I am not a pundit.  So why talk about something that you have no confidence in discussing?  That’s all I am getting at.

If only certain people in the world could realize when they are wholly unqualified to talk about anything.

Blogging From a Train

So we are on our way as of this post on Trip #4 to the Big Apple.  After driving the entire way by car the previous three times, we decided to go up to Lynchburg, VA and catch Amtrak the rest of the way, via the Northeast Regional Train #156.  I’ve got to say, this is a great way to travel, albeit a bit bumpy at times.  The staff on the train is very friendly and the experience is truly delightful.

This trip has gotten off to a great start!
