Well, here it is. Our shiny new blog!
I know, you’re probably wondering what the heck this is all about and what we’re going to write about here.
Me too, sorta. Right now, we have a direction we’re thinking of taking, but that’s about all. We’re counting on you and your comments to help us decide.
First off, I can tell you this isn’t going to be about computer tips per se. Hey, we’ve got a newsletter for that stuff. No, we want to do something new and different here.
See, one thing that we currently don’t do much of in the newsletter is opinion pieces. Sure we talk amongst ourselves here at the office about all the new technology and stuff. And we all have opinions about it (Apple computers suck). Sometimes strong opinions (no they don’t – PCs suck).
So, we thought, hey, why not start a blog and tell the world what we think about everything? Maybe you care, maybe you don’t, maybe this little cartoon describes the situation best:
Either way, that’s one thing you’re likely to stumble upon here as you browse though our banter.
The other use we thought might be fun is to share a few experiences with you that don’t necessarily have anything to do with computers or technology (I know, gasp!). Maybe I’ll give you the lowdown on a cool place I’m visiting. Maybe a quick post about something funny my dog just did (or ate). Heck, maybe we just find a cool article we want to share. Maybe we stumble upon a really funny joke .
Point is, ya just never know
Also, I can’t promise grammatically correct posts, proper spellling, or even that every post will be comprehensible by most people. I can promise we’ll do our best to make it fun, entertaining, a little informative, or at least mildly interesting each time you stop by
The blog will be written by myself (Steve), as well as our office manager / tech / programmer Gary, our newsletter editor Andy (those should be interesting), and our graphics / web / get-stuck-with-all-the-gruntwork guy Mike.
So, there you have it. I strongly recommend you join our little “blog alert” e-mail list over there on the side. You’ll get a quick little notification anytime something new is posted here, so you’ll never miss a minute of whatever online babble we come up with.
