This is the first blog post to my site, and as such I will start by talking about why I wanted to create a blog in the first place. So, I'll jump into the reason why...
I wanted to share my thoughts on life, child rearing, homeschooling and other stuff from a father/dad/husband's perspective. Over the last few years my wife has been the one who will write down her thoughts on her blog and often those thoughts have benefited others. I haven't done a lot of research on the web to know just how many blogs are out there similar to the one I'm creating/forming, but I figure another man's input on the above mentioned topics couldn't hurt. I guess at the basic blogger's level one hopes their blog will help others in some way. So, I'm giving it a try. Before I write anything, I must include a disclaimer.
Here's the disclaimer: I do not claim to know it all, or have original thoughts. I'm sure there have been men and woman before and after me who have and will say the same things I do, and perhaps in a more eloquent way or with more authority. Please take what I have to say with a grain of salt. I understand that not everyone will share my views, and I understand there are many differing situations and circumstances that won't apply to any advice I may include in future posts. If my future posts offend the reader, know that I do not intentionally write to that end. However, I'll write what I believe to be right, righteous, correct and of value, and if that offends the reader, there is not much to be said or done.
Again, I have no idea how future posts will evolve this blog. My intent is to help and encourage others. If I stray from that, then I guess that's the way my blog will go, and hopefully I won't stray too far off the path. Well, enjoy the future posts.
P.S., feel free to asks questions. Questions help spark discussions and thoughtfulness. I can't guarantee I can answer them all, or that I'll answer them, but they definitely can't hurt. If they do, I think I can just delete them. :-)
