“No, Jason, PLEEEAAASSEEE, that’s not the kind of resurrection I believe in!”–my wife, four minutes ago.
Greetings, humans and Republicans, and welcome back. You may remember me as the guy who posted at www.afistfulofdiapers.com. Well, I got lazy and some internet company squatted on my domain name. I refused to pay to get it back and was left with no website. Or was I? It turns out that my old wordpress site has been active all this time, so I might as well use it.
“But Jason,” you may be thinking, “when you type things on the internet you usually offend someone and end up getting in trouble.” Not so, dear reader. This time I have LEARNED things.
Things I Have Learned About Blogging by Jason W. Herbert
1) I am not as productive as some other bloggers. Take my friend Geraldine, who runs the wonderful www.everywhereist.com. She’s great. She’s got a concept and time to fill it to fruition. She posts all the time and they’re usually the kind of quirky-yet-insightful posts that make traveling fun, or at least better. I have no concept. I was going with this whole “modern dad in the world” thing, but realized there are 4 billion of those guys and they all have wi-fi. Therefore, while some of my parental exploits will be on here, the site won’t be about that. Nor will I be able to post everyday like the caffeinated Geraldine mentioned above (seriously, I have no idea how she does it.) When I get cranking on a research project I just don’t have time to tell you about my son’s farts (and they are masterful). I’ll tell ya when I can, though.
2)Um, I can’t think of anything to be #2.
3) Nothing bad about family. That shit backfires. Hard. It’s best you pretend we’re Amish. No, wait, Mennonite. Those guys can still go to Target.
4) I’m really, really going to try hard not to offend anyone this time. I promise. Really.
So that’s about it. I’m Back in Black as AC/DC might say. The site is still be refreshed so give it time. Also, I have to pee.
