My very first post – how exciting!

After several weeks now of contemplating the matter, I have finally decided to start up a blog.

I do not hesitate to acknowledge my limitations as a writer – I’ve always felt my communication comparative advantage lies in public speaking – and certainly I’m realistic enough to know that my musings shall not become particularly widely-read. However, the thrill of the political atmosphere here in Washington has jolted me out of my intellectual rut, and I’m quite convinced that this is the way to go.

My point, by the way, in doing this is not so much as to spread my thoughts to the world, but rather is of a somewhat more internal (and selfish) nature.

Essentially I want to work on improving my writing, and I think the rigor – and outlet – of a blog shall force me to overcome my intellectual laziness somewhat and actually work. Secondly, I’ve become convinced that putting pen to paper (so to speak) forces you to analyze ideas at a far deeper level than simply internal thought (not to mention that by becoming engaged in the online ‘conversation’ you can be far more stimulated and interact at a far deeper level, learning off people you wouldn’t have the chance to in person.

So, in my trademark alcoholic style, I propose a toast to this new endevour; to stimulation and to intellectual growth!

Cheers!

    There’s a spellcheck on this, isn’t there? Maybe I’ll actually read some of it.
