Thursday, September 9th, 2004 • 2 Comments on Hello and Welcome to My Life
I have been surprised to discover that people stop by here to find out what’s going on in my life. Not strangers, who only know me from here and are—for some bizarre reason—interested in reading my ramblings, but people who knew me before I became a dot com. It’s not entirely fair because they end up knowing more about me and my day-to-day life than I know about them.

Maybe it’s the format—I type much faster than I can write—or maybe it’s the narcissistic appeal. Here is my life for anyone to read about, and though I don’t have legions of fans, there are still people who want to know about me. Talk about pressure. I think I may have just intimidated myself out of writing anything ever again.
