tone deaf

I spent quite some time trying to come up with a catchy name, title, look and feel to this, my first blog page. I somehow felt that its success (whatever that means) would rely on the tone (please refer to the title reference) of the initial visit of whomever mysteriously stumbled across my page. I was concerned with the “catchy” heading and the “interesting feel” of the layout as well as the deep and intelligent first posting. I was going over all of the people that I assumed would visit, at my request, and all of the people that they would recommend to visit due to its incredible insight and ground breaking topics of discussion. I was also wondering when the last time the Pulitzer was given to an Italian?


So I started writing my first post… <enter>my son…

“Hey Dad what’s up”? (reads screen) “Who wrote that stuff”?

Then I realized that all that “goo” wasn’t me at all. It had nothing to do with what my intentions are for this blog thing. Come to think of it, I have little or no expectations for this as it is a new experience for me all together. I can, however, tell you what I hope…

I hope to help someone. I hope to encourage. I hope to shed some light on anything! I have been told, more than once, so I assume its true, that I have a pretty cool way of speaking to people about situations they are in that I am familiar with. I enjoy sharing things about who I am that prove to be beneficial to others that are open to suggestions and in similar situations.

So here’s the deal…

I’m going to randomly speak about being a husband to my wife for almost 14 years (Aug 21, 1993), a father to my children (boy 12 girl 8), a good neighbor, and a friend. I may speak about work, fitness, bowling (don’t laugh), books, or movies, but probably how they relate to my family. I also like to speak from the viewpoint of a guy and I will probably be more funny than deep.

Cause that’s how I roll…
