The Beginning

Here we are at the start of a new project that has been brewing in my mind for at least five years. The car's packed, we're leaving the neighborhood, about to begin a brand new journey. And although I'm excited, I have the nagging feeling that I'm forgetting something. I left the coffee pot on? Didn't stop the mail? Didn't leave the key for the neighbor? Left one of the kids at home? Nope.

What I think is bothering me is the voice inside my head that's been telling me (for close to five years) that this is a dumb idea, or that it's going to fall flat, or that people will hate it. The voice that then changes tactics and tells me that this isn't quite ready yet, that it needs a few more tweaks, that I should maybe try out that new cool piece of software or technology, read a few more books on how I could do this better. The voice that is the voice of fear. The voice that, with this post, I am officially serving notice to. Notice to shut the hell up. There's a reason it was left home. I didn't want it yapping at me in the car. I want to have a great trip.

So here we are. There's not a lot of content right now but that will come. In the mean time I invite you to look around. Up in the left corner you'll find a set of navigation buttons that will take you to the other pages of the site. Please read the Welcome page which will give you a very brief introduction to what this is all about. There are also links to all my contact information, Email, Facebook fan page, Twitter and something I'm rather excited about My Blog Talk Radio Show page. Stay tuned, there will be more information to come on that.

I'll be back in a day or two with more formal posts that will get to the meat of what I'm trying to do here. Until then, buckle your seat belt and enjoy the ride.

Yay, Bruce!!!! This is awesome!! Glad you decided to kick that voice to the curb and leave it behind. I'm excited to see what you do here!!

Thank you Alannah. Sometimes it takes quite an effort to gag that chatty devil. I'm going to do my best.

"The voice that is the voice of fear. "

I know that voice very well, Bruce. It has held me paralyzed for a few months. Every now and then, it tries to get a word in, but I think I might have kicked him a lot harder to the curb than I thought. I am glad you started this new venture. Looking forward to learning and seeing more.

Peace and love,
