I’ve decided that in this day and age, I need a “platform”. For a shy person, this is horrible. But I care about the issues, so c’est la vie.
Why I’m blogging:
1) Because I hate putting myself out there, actually. Does that sound strange? I hate it, so I’ll do more of it? I figure a blog is a good way to defend myself and explain my views in more depth than I can via twitter, e-mail, etc. I don’t like giving short shrift to more complicated issues.
2) I have something to say. I have spent a large part of the past 10 years thinking of how best to help the world, so I’d like to think that occasionally I have something important or useful to say.
