Hello world!

So… I’m keeping the default “Hello World!” title to this initial blog post becauseĀ  of my programming background, and anytime as a programmer you’re writing in a new language your first program is always a basic output that says, “Hello world!” It’s just one of those traditions.

I’ve been meaning to get a blog started on this site for quite a long time, but I always got myself sidetracked into other things. Heck, there are so many other things I need to do with the site as well (ahem, I’m looking at you Mystery Movies and Games of the Month), but this is a nice start. The format and installed them will likely change, but I think this looks works for the time being.

My general idea for this blog is to almost use it like a work journal, or just a place to toss some random thoughts and ideas. I already have other means in which to keep people in the loop on news and upcoming events that I shoudl be able to keep that to a minimum here. Aw, heck… who am I kidding? That stuff will still get a mention here, but it won’t be the focus.

I’ve also been wanting to record a video blog (vlog… how far have we come? Web log becomes blog and now vlog stand for video blog. What’s next?), but we’ll see how this goes first. I also tend to ramble a bit in that off-the-cuff setting with a lot of um’s and long pauses as I collect my thoughts. No um’s here. Just words. But, um, if I ever do that I’ll probably just YouTube the thing and link it here.

I would say, “Enjoy!” but I’m not sure the direction this thing is really going to take or if anyone is really going to be interested in my jumbled thoughts and paranormal rants. Do I rant? Do I even own a soapbox upon which to stand? I’ll need to find one.
