In the beginning… May 25, 2007Posted by Joe in atheism, books, life, science, software.
there was a blank text box.
So here is the beginning of my blog and to be honest I am not sure what I am going to do with it. At first I was thinking of making an atheism blog, but there is so much more to me than that, so many more important things.
My decision then is to leave this blog generalized and I am sure I will have posts on many different subjects that interest me. Primarily they will be science, software development and testing, books, atheism, skepticism. I may touch on movies and television where I have an eclectic taste. Maybe I will mention politics from time to time.
It seems to be there is a general conceit in blogging. The strange idea that people might actually be interested in reading whatever silly opinion I might have on whatever idea is currently knocking around in my brain. Why should you really care? Well my conclusion is you shouldn’t, so I am writing the blog for me. If it entertains you as well as getting me to write something that’s just an added benefit. Really I just want to get the ideas out of my head and somewhere in the world.
To be brief, I am a 30 year old, white, software QA engineer living in the beautiful pacific northwest. Currently I am working as a software quality tester for a large bank. I was previously a science teacher for two years, before that I was also working in the software field for a well known company.
I am a dabbler in many things, but I tend to master very few. I like to try almost everything though. I just don’t seem to have the stick-to-it-iveness that is necessary to become an expert at anything. I very often start things that I never finish. Let’s just hope this blog doesn’t go the same way.
