The Power of Blogging

Well, here it is. The first post of my first blog. I’ve put this off for a long time — for lot’s of great reasons, of course. But finally I was forced to start a blog. Ok, it’s probably more accurate to say I was embarrassed into doing this.

What could possibly force or embarrass anyone to do something as time consuming as writing a blog?

Ironically, for me it was simply reading a section of blog post entitled: “If you don’t have a blog, start one” by Sarah Allen. I think you’ll find Sarah’s words as compelling as I did. In addition, consider this story as a demonstration of the power of blogging. Think about it: months after writing her post, an acquaintance  takes an action directly because of her words. In the next six months, how many others — mostly people she’s never met — will herpes transmission also read it and take action?

That’s pretty powerful.

So, I encourage everyone to heed Sarah’s words and pity those that try to avoid it. I was able to delay taking action for the last few months only because of my prodigious abilities to procrastinate. While it is true that there were business reasons for doing this now and certainly any content here is my sole responsibility; nonetheless, it’s all Sarah’s fault.

BTW: If you happen to see her before I do, please let her know; you’ll probably get a smile.

So, the journey begins!

    Blogging certainly keeps oneself ‘on track’, as we formulate ideas in a iterative fashion. Often, I find myself making decisions purely on the basis of whether or not it would make an interesting blog post!
