Not Following Through

There's been a lot of chatter on the comments recently about me not following through, most of it deserved. Throughout my life one of my struggles has been to focus on one thing and follow it through. I used to be totally incapable of it, but over the years have gotten better. There are a lot of things that I have followed through with (my diet, writing this blog, etc.) as well as plenty that I haven't.

Once in a while I feel, for whatever reason, that I've conquered it, and I announce it to the world. While I'm on the topic of admitting faults, another is that I tend to prematurely announce things sometimes. As a reader, you already know that.

I understand your frustration when you read about something I say I'm going to do, get excited about seeing it happen, and then it falls off the radar. If it's any consolation, I'm acutely aware of these things and am similarly frustrated.

Welcome!

Now that I've got a couple posts under my belt, I guess I should probably go ahead and welcome everybody to the site.

If the logo looks familiar, but the page feels different, it's probably because you stopped by while I was blogging over on my Tumblr site. I was there for about two years, but I recently felt like giving it a fresh start, so I moved on over to Sett since you can't get much fresher than that. I would be lying if I said I wasn't excited to be here.

I originally started blogging simply because I love to write.

It's something that I've always dabbled with in my free time, and I would love for it to be a major part of my life once I retire from the service. Like anything else, however, writing takes practice, and a blog felt like the perfect venue. Of course, like most people that start down the path, I quickly became addicted to interacting with the readers from around the world that stopped to visit my humble little corner of the internet. That's one of the major reasons that I decided to move over to this platform instead of an older, more established site. The opportunities to have a conversation seem much greater.

When I was going through the list of things that I should blog about, it quickly became obvious that it had to be the two subjects I'm most passionate about: my family and my job.
