|I like turtles|
This was the blog post that I read recently that made me want to resurrect my blog without any thoughts of capitalizing on things.
Without going into too much detail, my wife is a reasonably successful blogger. So, in the past, when I've started a blog, it was with the intention of making money in the long run. Or marketing my eventual novels/short fiction.
I've come to the conclusion that those goals maybe for people who are advanced bloggers. I don't think that I've ever blogged without an agenda. Even when I was in college, the blog that I had was mostly to make myself look cool and pick up chicks.
I'm going to go ahead and let anyone who's considering that path right now that there are much better ways to pick up chicks (having eventually picked one up myself).
Anyways, read the blog post on Chuck's site if you're thinking about starting one up yourself and if you are going to start up a blog without a primary topic or agenda, let me know - I'd like to read it.
I'd also like you to comment here because comments are nice. And because I need help with my grammar.
