That’s me. Look, Mom, I made a post! It’s vaguely stupid, and wouldn’t put it on my resume, but, hey, I made a post!
If you’re like me, you’re a busy person, with lots of interest. I know I am – you know, like me… whatever.
So, I’m fascinated by scale model ships. I’m a terrible modeler, really, but enjoy the challenge of proving it.
So, I started this blog, called The Black Falcon Project. It’s all about building this model ship called the Black Falcon. Genius of a title, I daresay. Unless you’re a scale ship modeler, it’s as dull as dirt. But that’s okay, because, if you ARE a scale ship modeler, you and I can share my stupid story.
So, for Father’s Day, my daughter gave me another model ship kit – a real mess as it came it without instructions. As I am a real mess of a modeler, it’s a natural fit.
So, now I have another blog, called the 60cm Ship Project. Why? Because my ship came without build instructions, and I just know somebody out there got the same deal, and maybe we can work together to figure this out.
So, I just read a great post by Millenial Life Crisis about how you should write your blogs for yourself and hope they are read by others instead of writing posts that you think will generate numbers. As you can tell by my numbers, I don’t do that anyway…
So, what’s happening here is that I’m foolishly developing this network of blogs. A network? A Network? What the heck?
So, now I’m like a media mogul, between those two blogs, this blog, and my Skippity Whistles site, and a few more! I plan to go buy a Maserati (I can only afford a Hot Wheels…) and avoid the paprazzi!
So, just by telling my dull story, by exposing my hobbies, I’m building my brand, which, someday, somehow, might sell my books. Maybe.
So, why do all these sentences begin with the word “so?” Because that word blends one thought into the other, building this sort of stream of conscious style. Also because it makes you want to read down the list of “so’s” to figure out what’s going on. Mostly because you’re not supposed to start a sentence with “so.”
So, really? It’s just kinda fun!
