Well, I can no longer feel above all the 21st-century hacks who fire off their trivial thoughts onto the internet– I’m starting a blog. Why on earth am I doing this, when I could be out doing things other than navel-gaze through a keyboard? Well:

  • I have the attention span of a hummingbird and I need something to keep myself distracted at work.
  • I miss being able to just write creatively for the hell of it, which I haven’t done since high school.
  • I have a lot of opinions on a lot of things, and forcing myself to actually write them down may be a good idea to find out whether they’re coherent or not.
  • My life is interesting and worth writing about… eh, nevermind.

This venture is inspired by the blogs of my friends, most of whom actually have a focus, such as food or politics. I can’t yet promise you that, but you’ll see a lot of the things that I think about and spend time doing, such as living in DC, cycling, working for the federal government, and of course, linking to articles I didn’t have to write myself. I’m hoping to take an extended trip to another country in the coming months (more on that later), so if all goes well, this should become a travelogue later on. So sit tight, dear reader, and let’s have some fun.

  1. you have sunk into the abyss. there’s no way of getting out now, so you might as well bear your soul to the blogosphere….seriously though, i look forward to reading your entries! i’m sure they will be as well-written as your Yelp reviews.

  2. Ben I love this! I can’t wait to read about the camping trip…that WILL make this, right? I’ll send you those food pics and you can write about your splendid meal.

    Yay for blogging! Maybe I can get off my duff and blog myself.. hehe. maybe.

    Anyway, props to you!
