My first attempt at blogging

I like to think that I'm somebody that has stayed caught up with the times when it comes to technology and the wonderful world of social media. I was on Facebook (and who could forget MySpace) well before most of my friends were. I was a little late to join the cult of Twitter, but I'm there now and I'm hooked. But starting a blog was something I had thought about and was like, ehh, not interested. I'd read some and say I don't have the time for that garbage. However, I've been checking out more and more of them. I have friends that blog and if they can do it, it surely can't be that difficult (looking at you, Skip). I have lots of different opinions and ideas on a wide variety of items, most of which have no bearing on anything resembling important. However, I'd like to share some of those brilliant, and not-so-brilliant, tidbits of intellectual whimsy with the rest of the world (actually just our MyFamily members, Facebook friends and Twitter followers). 

Nothing will be off-limits. Probably going to be a lot of sports, movies and music on here. We'll also delve into the realms of politics, education, parenting and who knows what else.  Many of the topics I'll be discussing come from discussions that I have had with family and friends and random observations that I may have occasionally. I'd also like for readers to chime in with suggestions for future topics. 

I think the goal of all social media-philes is to make a lasting impact with the audience and give them something they can use. Honestly, it would be nice for some of what I say or write about to be used to make the world a better place, but above all, I just really hope you don't think it sucks.
