Geez. I’ve spent far too long – years – thinking about blog ideas and bouncing them off of people to see what popped. Once, I was going to write a blog about mammals… all mammals all the time (it was going to be called either “Matt’s Mammals” or “MammalMania,” I couldn’t decide). Then it was going to be a blog about better living through science (that one was going to be called “Factual Advantage” – get it?). For a while, it was going to be a blog about making the leap into writing as a career (called “Writing with Both Feet”). Most recently, it was going to be a blog that promotes public enthusiasm for “humanned” space travel & space outposts (entitled either “Let’s Go Boldly!” or “Peeps in Space” – the second name applying to both people and sugar-coated marshmallow chicks in space, of course).
Last fall, I became a stay-at-home Dad. Since then, several folks have suggested that I blog about that. The idea appealed to me, but I saw a couple of drawbacks. First, there are a veritable ton of Dad blogs already saturating the interwebs. Second, I wasn’t sure that I had all that much new stuff to say about it other than it’s lots of fun, I feel lucky to have the chance to do it, and I am tired all. the. time.
Recently, I had a couple of folks that are fans of my ramblings tell me, “I really enjoy your writing. Honestly, you would write about anything and I’d read it.” Eureka! I finally had the theme for my blog… all of it.
So, here’s my blog about all of it. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I hope to enjoy writing it.
(Be daring and leave a comment; it’ll make me feel like I’m not blogging into the virtual void.)
