Well, here it is. The summation of months, no, years, maybe–of stopping, starting, starting over, forgetting, refreshing, and starting over again. This is maybe the, I don’t know, eighth rendition of my “blog” the world has seen. It’s never been quite right before, but now it is. And again, here it is! They say starting is the hardest part, so let’s never start this again.
Starting a blog is intimidating, and for the record, I cringe at the word “blog.” It evokes feelings of stay-at-homers and influencers, make sure to like and subscribers, smash that follow button-ers, and so on. To be successful in this space, you’re supposed to have an angle. A theme that you stick to and brand yourself as an expert on. Bloggers are supposed to have a niche! But I…don’t. I wanted to create a space that was authentic to me, a space where I can talk about whatever I want.
So, that’s how Write On Dude came about. I want to talk about food, I want to share stories, I want to write about travel, and whatever other goodies pop into my mind and out of my fingertips. I don’t know where this blog will go, and I don’t have any intentions for it, except to make sure that it is high-quality and real. I hope you can find something here that’s new to you or that inspires you–that would be friggin’ awesome. But in any case, I’m just gonna write on, dude.
Okay, that ending felt really lame but I had to do it. Anyway. Cheers, guys.
