Time to Get Started

It’s been a while since I worked on my “web presence”, I have for some time been interested in the whole social media thing that started with blogging, Myspace, Facebook, Twitter and the like but haven’t really jumped in with both feet.   

Having plenty of time due to being unemployed for about 11 months now, I’ve been pondering the thought again and I believe I’ve decided how I want to set things up.

This, the main site, will have links to my stuff, such that it is, on the web at large.   Twitter, Flickr, Youtube, Delicious, etc.     On this page I will also post relatively short daily updates, perhaps even multiple posts per day on a variety of subjects, sharing information and things I find interesting.

For longer, more involved posts dedicated to a specific subject, I will post on my personal blog which is Musings of a Southern Gentleman and include a short post here pointing to the longer post.

I may at some point create subject specific blogs like my now defunct Second Life blog (defunct because I’m not spending time in Second Life at the moment due largely to the horrible performance I get when I try, plus some personal reasons).   I play World of Warcraft quite a bit and have been toying with the idea of blogging on the subject.

My goal is to get into the habit of posting things and expressing myself, even if it’s only for my own benefit, though I do hope that someday someone other than myself will read the babblings that I’ve put out here.

I’ve always liked the idea of a Renaissance Man or Polymath, like to think of myself as one even if it’s to a lesser degree of those famous men such as Di Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Teddy Roosevelt.  I’d like to think that if they were alive today and had grown up in these times that they’d have a very active presence on the web.
