They say that any blog post really needs a point to deserve existence. While conceding that there is an inordinate amount of pointless content out there, I agree. However, even if I feel that I have a point, a story, a well-
formed argument or discussion, you may feel differently. Well, OK….whatever.
It has been too long since I’ve published anything here, and I have been progressively encouraged and shamed by a couple of sources: Steven Pressfield whose books “Do The Work” and “The War of Art” continue to bug me, but in a good way, and the husband of a good friend of mine Steve Wiggins, who is a blogging machine and seems able to publish daily, regardless of ANYTHING (he can be found at http://sawiggins.wordpress.com/ and I can’t recommend his work more that this – he makes me think).
My work for the past 10 months has been all-consuming and very satisfying, including the usual road bumps along the way and the over-arching ambiguity that is part of the workplace in today’s world. I’m not fond of uncertainty, but I AM beginning to come to grips with it. There will be more about the continuing journey through ambiguity.
I guess the point of this post is I’m not dead yet and I still have a viewpoint from within that you may find of interest. There will be more.

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely
long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m
thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog
blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any
tips for beginner blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
Hi! What are you finding to be the main challenge as you start writing?
