A Goosecross Blog? So, just how did we come to host a weblog anyway? We’ll, to be honest, I put up quite the fight because I just didn’t get it (I’m not quite sure I get it to this day). Who has the time to write these things? Who has the time to read these things? We have TV, radio, the Internet, newspapers, magazines, email, instant messaging, and now podcasts and blogs. We clearly have information overload. Heck, I’m one of those that feels guilty when a few of the daily newspapers pile up unread.
Then, I remembered driving down the street one day as I pulled up behind a car that had thundering music blaring through it’s closed windows. Just as I was getting irritated, I noticed a bumper sticker on that car — “If this music is too loud, then you’re too old”. Trust me, any complaint that I had, I did not voice.
This memory got me thinking, if I don’t understand blogging, then maybe I am getting too old or, at the very least, out of touch with the way those in their 20’s and 30’s choose to communicate (have you ever seen the way their thumbs dance across the keypad of a cell phone IMing?). So, suffice it to say, that was all it took for us to join the new age of information sharing and dissemination. Welcome to the Goosecross blog!
So, where shall we go from here? I feel like I’m throwing a party and don’t know who to invite. But we’ll figure it out…
