So I have a blog.

My first blog post is about why I'm starting a blog (meta?).

Well, more specifically, why I'm creating this blog and what type of content you can expect to see here. That is if you read anything further than this post, or even this sentence, which I fully expect you not to do.

Outside of things like MySpace, LiveJournal, Facebook, etc. I've never really had a blog. Part of me has always wanted to create one, both as an outlet to share my ideas and thoughts and also because I'm an attention whore, which I fully admit but am not particularly proud of. So I've asked myself; what do I want to write about, and what might you want to read about, and is there any overlap there? I don't really know the answer to any of those questions, especially the last two, so I've just decided I'm going to write about whatever the hell I want, and if you want to read it, awesome, and if not... well eventually I'll probably just stop writing. As much as it may exercise the mind to write I can't see myself maintaining a blog that nobody reads. In fact, who knows if I'll keep maintaining this blog either way. This is only one post after all and hardly a commitment at this point.

Some of what I imagine you will see on this blog would be entertainment reviews (movies, video games, TV shows, etc.), commentaries on local and world news, commentaries and thoughts about science and religion, and stories about my life. I occasionally (rarely) write short stories which I may post on here as well. I will no doubt re-post articles and news stories on here that I find interesting or maybe some pictures and YouTube videos that I think fit the theme of this blog well.

I am, of course, a furry, and I'm proud of it. I plan to celebrate that in my blog so you will see many things being discussed from a furry perspective, or about furries, or about my experiences with them. I'm a fursuiter (see photo below) and goofing off in suit is one of my favorite pastimes. I'm sure you'll be seeing photos and stories about that as well. This blog is going to be by furries, for furries but with content that hopefully non-furs can enjoy as well if they stumble across it.

It's me. :3
Last but not least I won't be censoring myself on this blog. I'm not out to intentionally be offensive or cruel, and I generally like to consider myself a decently mannered fox, but if I have something critical to say about your religion or I feel it's appropriate to talk about a particular sex act or use a specific swear word, I will do so. The only thing I can almost guarantee I will not do is share information trusted to me by other people, or information that I feel would hurt or violate the privacy of a specific individual.

So then I think that's plenty wordy enough for an introduction to this blog. I'm not exactly sure what to expect from it - maybe it will fade away into nothing, maybe people will actually read it and I'll continue posting. Time will tell. Thanks for reading to the end of this first post though! I do appreciate it and hopefully it wasn't too boring.
