This blog first started in April 2014, largely on a challenge from a former work colleague. Perhaps the argument was that having a blog would be more polished than writing mere Facebook notes over and over again. And he was right. So, in a way, I owe him this post.
I didn’t really know where it would go when I wrote. I guess I just followed the mantra “write what you know.” I figured if I could get views from some other places, I would be content.
January isn’t even halfway over yet, and already I’ve had views from eight separate countries. Two debuted for the first time – Italy and Russia. Grazie and Спасибо for doing so. Even if you’re stopping by, I hope you’ll continue to do so.
I’m now one-fourth of the way through the World Cup profiles. Keep an eye out for Group C (France, Australia, Peru, and Denmark) in the near future. It may be a cheap way to do it, but I’ve never seen it that way. I’ve always felt lucky that I get to travel whenever I can. And I’m always grateful to get new views. It’s nice to know that people are interested in reading these words, as jumbled and cluttered as they may be. Let me cook something up for you here.
In all seriousness, though, I know I’ve said it numerous times, but thank you to everybody who reads my posts. I know they can be tedious, and perhaps a little repetitive, but I think I’m starting to expand my profile. If you can do this favor for me, I’d be forever grateful.
This is the blog’s “origin story.” Hope it rises to meet its destiny.
