So Many Thoughts...

Part of writing a blog is knowing who your audience will be. When I used to write often, I knew that the folks who were going to read it were my friends and family. I would send a link occasionally when I would put up a new post. Now and then I would write something that I crafted for particular music friends so I'd post it on a music discussion list. I'd get lots of traffic from those. Mostly I'd write to help myself find some clarity about what I was feeling about something. I'm one of those people who figure out things by writing them down.

I have found that facebook has done several things to change my habits and my thoughts about blogging. On facebook, small bits of information can be passed along through status updates. I can post links to interesting articles (interesting to me), and I can comment on the postings of others. But... somehow, it seems to lack much depth. It's like a snapshot, a quick note, a phone call that lasts a minute. I'm not quite sure who my audience is going to be when I blog. Will it be my music friends? My old friends? My family? My school co-workers and parents? I can't help but consider how what I write will be received by each of these groups.

I want to get back into the habit of blogging, of writing, even if it is just for me. I want to delve deeper, think my way through difficult ideas, and put it out there for whomever wishes to add their thoughts.

Welcome to my blog. Hope you enjoy reading as much as I've enjoyed writing.

Your blog contains much needed inspiration and food for thought. I was friend to Keith Bowden also. You do great honor to his him. He gave full measure to those fortunate to know him.

All my best to you,
