Welcome to the Blogging World- Journey to the Cloud

So I’ve made it to the big time – I have my own blog as a part of Journey to the Cloud.

Candidly, when I was asked to be a blogger for Journey to the Cloud, I jumped right in with no hesitation.  I love to write, and anybody who knows me knows that I have no shortages of opinions, so I figured it’d be a great gig.  I thought, “How hard can it be?”

That is until I actually started trying to write something.

One challenge is that I’m very sarcastic and have a dry sense of humor.  I love George Carlin, my favorite blog is The Ad Contrarian, and I get a kick out of websites like the ONION and  Oddly enough, I’m also a sap, and I like reading the motivational posts of Seth Godin, even though I think it’s sometimes trite and full of clichés.  My iPod has everything from Mozart to 2 Live Crew, Hall and Oates, to Disturbed.

Another challenge is that I really don’t get all jazzed up about knowing detailed technical specifications or the gory inner workings of the latest technology.  It’s a safe bet you’ll never find me in a casual conversation about the latest 1GHz dual-core Apple A5 custom-designed, high-performance, low-power system-on-a-chip in the iPad 2 (yes, I looked that up).

Ultimately I decided that this blog will be less about specific products or technologies, and will be a blend of cliché and sarcasm, with a technology twist, from the perspective of a busy, slightly warped, IT Director.

It’ll simply be my honest thoughts and opinions, and I welcome yours.
