Staring at the Blank Screen

Well, I'm finally doing it.  I've been considering starting a blog for a long, long time.  I've always been hesitant because it seemed like a big commitment to keep it fresh and current.  My friend, Fred Wilson, is my blogging idol.  Fred does such a great job that I didn't want to get started unless I could be as committed as he is.

I did get a chance to do some blogging on our summer vacation.  It was as addictive as you read about.  And, it was a great way to avoid mailing postcards to our friends and family while traveling.  However, our daily, non-vacation lives are packed.  Where would the time come from to do a regular blog?

Well, time won't be an issue for now.  I've got some time on my hands as I think abut what's next for me.  And, learning Movable Type will keep me busy.  I think back to 1996 when I left Shiva to join New Oak.  At that time, I experimented with my first HTML web page, hand-coded.  A lot has changed in 10 years.

Blank Screen

So, as I started up this new blog, I have been playing around with Movable Type and trying to figure out how to format my standard template.  Things should change a lot as I read some books and experiment.  And, I spent some time staring at the blank screen trying to decide what to type.  And, I just dove in and wrote this.
