I know this blog has not grown much in reputation. In fact, I would dare say that there wasn't much to begin with since I started this blog with little idea of what I was doing or how I wanted to do it. I felt that something needed to be said, but I wasn't sure how I would say it. After a time, the voice would find itself, or so was the idea back in March 2006.
Things went pretty well. I made about half of the posts up to this point in that inaugural year. Didn't get much exposure, but this was before I got into Facebook, and well before I discovered Twitter.
Then things got really crazy, and everything about my reputation changed. In July of the same year, I started a new blog that gave me an entirely new reputation, for good and ill. Mostly good I would like to think, but even after nearly seven years a father, I still think there is room for improvement.
Right now my reputation as a reliable blogger would not be accurate, but I want to change that around. I've been listening to an audiobook version of The School Revolution by Ron Paul and part of the curriculum is to keep a blog. Posts don't have to be long, 250 words is ideal. Mostly because blogging becomes part of the curriculum in the sixth grade. With that idea of posting 250 words a day, I figured it would be worth it try again.
One goal I have for 2014 is to attain my Amateur Radio Operators Licence. Antennas are a part of the materials I'm studying, and I have come across the term 'resonant frequency.' Seems that resonance isn't just for destructive purposes, though if I remembered what a tuning fork did when eight years ago my first post would not be quite as rambling.
Regardless, in order to turn this into a reputable blog, work needs to be done. And that's what I intend to do from this day forward.
