On New Beginnings, Self-Aggrandizement, Cheap Thrills

So, “why the unreliable narrator?” you ask…Actually, you aren’t asking this. I’m asking myself this in anticipation of a) telling someone about this blog and/or b) someone stumbling across this blog. Here’s the scoop:

I realized that when I shut down my first blog and started a new one, the subject matter, while sometimes going deeper, tended to hover right there at the surface most of the time. In the blog world, this isn’t a bad thing; it’s actually probably safer and less weird than someone just pouring their heart out on the interwebs. I wanted to have a place to go into a little more detail, a place to talk about things that impacted my life…which, in turn, got me thinking…

How reliable am I to talk about things that happen to me? You could side either way: Either I’m ultimately the only person capable to talk about what happens to me or I’m too close to the situation to be able to talk about it with any sort of truth. So, then comes this blog. If, in fact, I do tell people about this, my hope would be that people who I’ve experienced, well, LIFE with, would comment and tell the story from their angle. I’m interested to see how things pan out. I hope it results in some scintillating stories.

Ok. That’s a lie. I just hope it results in some amusing, not lame stories…
