These are exciting times for sure. I don’t know how the Internet got this far without my blog contribution. This isn’t my first ever blog post. Remember Myspace? You could post blogs straight onto your profile page. Awesome!
I did a long-running blog as an alternate version of famed movie critic Leonard Maltin. He would get in all sorts of trouble and usually ended up in court for some reason. What was supposed to be a straight movie review never quite turned out that way. In fact, his daughter Jessie actually messaged me one time to say that she enjoyed them. “My Dad thinks it’s ridiculous,” she said. Not sure how she found my mock reviews, but I was excited to know that they were being read. Ten years or so later, I’ve finally set up an author page on WordPress.
I have a hodgepodge of ideas on what to do with it. I could post daily blogs, stories, comics, pictures, grandma’s recipes, and my latest tax returns in the hopes that someone, somewhere would be interested. I’ve worked for an online publishing company in downtown Orlando since 2014. During that time, I’ve written dozens of fiction ebooks under a pseudonym. Perhaps you’d like to read them, or maybe you’re better off not. For the past year and a half, I’ve been on an active duty status with the Army. I’m currently living abroad in the United Arab Emirates (more to come on that later). I miss home and my family and friends, but I won’t be here forever. Orlando is a great place for artists and innovators. I’ve met some really cool people along the way, and it’s been a real blessing. I believe that there is no limit to what we can accomplish in our own lives. How far we go is entirely up to us or how many motivational posters we can hang on our walls.
I hope this author page helps get my work out there. Most of all, I hope to keep it active, because I lose interest in things rather quickly. Just take a look at my Yelp page. Two years ago, I made a resolution to learn how to read sheet music for the piano. “Practice, every day,” I told myself. Spoiler alert, I didn’t. Time is fleeting, and life is short. There’s no room to mess around. I’ve since devised a mobile contraption that delivers electric shocks to my brain whenever I procrastinate. That should do the trick. We’ll see!
