My resolution for 2010 is to write a blog. I’ve been thinking about this for some time but at first I couldn’t imagine what I might have to say that would be interesting to anyone other than my dog.
My dog’s name is Jupie, by the way. She’d follow me just about anywhere but most sensible people wouldn’t want to follow me around at all. They’d get pretty bored you see.
It’s just home to work – work to home over and over again. Home to church – church to home on Sunday. There are occasional exceptions but I don’t get out much. Which means I spend a lot of time at home reading other people’s blogs and thinking, “I should write down some of my silly thoughts instead of boring my wife and daughters so much.” Jupie listens to me even after I’ve driven the rest of the family away.
Many blog writers have a specialized topic that they write about. I’m a filmmaker and I teach classes in film and TV production, but I don’t think I’d like to write exclusively about that. Jupie doesn’t watch films.
Music is an important part of my life, especially blues music, but there are a lot of people writing blogs about music. I’ll just try to do some music documentaries every now and then. Jupie seems to really like them.
I’ve done a couple of documentaries about barbecue and I like to cook on my backyard grill. I don’t think I should write about it though, although Jupie gets very excited when I grill stuff.
Who knows what I’ll write about, but that’s my resolution for 2010.
